SAN FRANCISCO The Open SystemC Initiative is reporting milestones achieved by three of its working groups at the Design Automation Conference here.
OSCI is advancing SystemC as an industry-standard language for electronic system-level (ESL) design.
The Transaction-level Modeling Working Group (TLM WG), the Synthesis WG and the Analog/Mixed-Signal (AMS) WG, all have made significant progress in meeting its goals.
The TLM WG has completed a TLM-2.0 Reference Manual for public release. The manual is a formal description of the TLM-2.0 APIs and semantics.
"The TLM-2.0 Reference Manual demonstrates OSCI's commitment to providing a robust and comprehensive foundation for transaction-level model interoperability and reuse," said OSCI Chairman Ken Tallo, in a statement.
The Synthesis WG is in the final stages of releasing a synthesis subset draft to the public.
OSCI's AMS WG has completed the public review of its AMS Draft 1 standard.
The TLM-2.0 Reference Manual and AMS Draft 1 standard are available for download now under open source license at no cost to users and suppliers. The synthesis subset draft document is it expected to be available by end of August.
An update on OSCI activities will be featured Monday, July 27 at the North American SystemC User's Group (NASCUG) meeting co-located with DAC.
