Accellera publishes SystemC-AMS 2.0 standard

Accellera Systems Initiative has published the language reference manual for the latest version of its mixed-signal simulation environment based on SystemC. Version 2.0 of SystemC-AMS adds support for more dynamic behaviors in the analog domain.

DVCon 2013: Engineers Question EDA Standards Leaders at Accellera "Town Hall" Meeting

Do design and verification engineers care about EDA standards? If the Accellera Systems Initiative "Town Hall" meeting at DVCon 2013 Feb. 25 is any indication, the answer is an emphatic yes. A packed audience attended a lively, hour-long meeting in which non-stop questions were answered by Accellera and IEEE standards developers.

Master & Commander: DVCon's Stan Krolikoski

Now in its 25th year, DVCon is coming up in a couple of weeks in Silicon Valley. In terms of process nodes, 25 years is about twelve generations. In terms of dog years, it's about four generations. In terms of the life of Stan Krolikoski, however, 25 years is only part of one career. It's also the amount of time Stan's been going to DVCon, even though it had a different name when he attended the first such conference back in 1988.

A look back on 2012: Accellera

Editor's note: While other respondents talked about standards, the response I got from Accellera was so complete that I want to publish it in its entirety.

An important principle of Accellera Systems Initiative is to encourage availability and adoption of next-general EDA and IP standards. To that end, Accellera has realized several accomplishments this year in the areas of technical achievements and standards; industry events; educational videos; and awards.

Accellera Systems rolls new SystemC Library

"Accellera Systems Initiative has released the version 2.3.0 of its SystemC open source proof-of-concept library. The offering comes free of charge to the global electronic design community, the organization noted.

Compatible with the newly revised IEEE 1666 Standard SystemC Language Reference Manual, announced by the IEEE Standards Association in November last year, version 2.3.0 provides a number features including support for transaction-level modeling (TLM), a critical approach to enable high level and more efficient design of complex ICs and SoCs in a single library, Accellera Systems stated."

Accellera Systems Initiative: team effort & SystemC Library 2.3

"This week, Accellera Systems Initiative is announcing a new version of its SystemC library, Version 2.3 to be exact. There hasn't been a new version since way back in 2005 with Version 2.1 (albeit 2.2, a bug-fix release, was published in 2006), so this is the culmination of a lot of hard work."

Accellera puts next release of SystemC library up for review

Transaction-level modelling and system-level analysis are important tasks for any low-power design activity given the major savings that can be made at this level: simply stopping transactions from repeating needlessly pays big in terms of reducing circuit activity and, with it, energy usage.

So, a new release in the SystemC world is something to watch and version 2.3 of the library is the first to...

Why the OSCI-Accellera Merger?

By now most of you will have heard and read about the merger Accellera and OSCI into the Accellera Systems Initiative. A question that may linger after reading various press accounts is "why a merger"? There are, of course, synergies in standards to be discovered and exploited- anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of current EDA standards will understand that. But, why the drastic act of merging into a single organization with all of the difficulty and expense that such a merger entails?

Accellera + OSCI = what exactly?

So what are the advantages and disadvantages of having these come together under one roof? I spoke with Stan Krolikoski, an OSCI board member, treasurer, chair of the IEEE 1666 SystemC working group, secretary for Accellera, and in his spare time works for Cadence. In addition, I chair the Interfaces Technical Committee within Accellera, so I also have an inside view as to what is going on...

Accellera and Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI) Approve Merger

After over a year of negotiations tha became intense about six months ago, Accellera and the Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI) announced that their members and Boards have approved their merger, and they have united to form Accellera Systems Initiative. The new name acquiesces both groups who strongly wanted to maintain some identity even after the merger. Accellera is by far the organization with the most IEEE standard and the wider interest in EDA.
