SAN JOSE, Calif.--The Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI) and Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP) groups Monday (May 31) said they are joining forces to work toward the common goal of an interoperable modeling infrastructure for Transaction Level Modeling (TLM) with SystemC.
This partnership was formed in response to the growing numbers of SystemC users moving to TLM.
OSCI is dedicated to the development and promotion of SystemC, a C++ based class library for high-level electronic system design. OCP-IP is dedicated to making a common standard for intellectual property (IP) core interfaces that facilitate "plug and play" system-on-chip (SoC) design.
The OSCI TLM working group effort has attracted a great deal of attention, drawing it's 52 members from organizations such as ARM, Coware, Cadence Design Systems, Calypto Design Systems, Eklectic Ally, Forte Design Systems, Fujitsu, Mentor Graphics, NEC, Philips, Summit Design, and the University of Tubengen.
