MANHASSET, NY The Open SystemC Initiative has elected Eric Lish Chairman of the Board, succeeding his Intel colleague Ken Tallo.
"It is necessary for the industry to raise the level of abstraction from the modeling and architecture perspective," said Lish, Manager of Virtual Platforms within Intel's Technology and Manufacturing Group, in a statement.
"As an industry, we must come together to focus on system-level issues to help enable the growth of technologies. I want OSCI to do all it can to act as an enabler, providing the entire design ecosystem with a clear, accessible path to standards-based system-level design."
Earlier this year OSCI formed the Configuration,
Control and Inspection (CCI) working group, its latest, to streamline the portability of models across tools.
OSCI is dedicated to supporting and advancing SystemC as an open industry standard for system-level modeling, design and verification.
OSCI has added ARM's John Goodenough as a Director joining other directors Laurent Maillet-Contoz, STMicroelectronics; Michel Genard, Virtutech; Mark Glasser, Mentor Graphics; Ralph von Vignau, NXP Semiconductors; and Markus Willems, Synopsys.
OSCI has also admitted two new associate corporate members: Qualcomm and OFFIS, an R&D center in Germany, raising associate membership to 25 companies.
