Portable Stimulus Working Group Call for Contributions
The Accellera Portable Stimulus Working Group (PSWG) is pleased to announce that it is seeking contributions to assist in the creation of a Portable Test and Stimulus standard. The Portable Test and Stimulus standard will define a specification to permit the creation of a single representation, usable by a variety of users across different levels of integration under different configurations, enabling the generation of different implementations that run on a variety of execution platforms, including, but not necessarily limited to, simulation, emulation, FPGA prototyping and post-Silicon. Contributions will be accepted beginning on June 3, 2015 and ending on August 5, 2015. Find out more.
UVM in SystemC
UVM-SystemC development was initiated in a European project as part of the 7th Framework Programme, Verification for heterogeneous Reliable Design and Integration (VERDI), with the objective to develop a unified system-level verification methodology for heterogeneous systems. Much progress has been made since June 2014 when VERDI contributed the UVM-SystemC language reference manual (LRM) and reference implementation to Accellera for continued development. For more information about UVM-SystemC progress, read the new article, "Accellera’s UVM in SystemC Standardization: Going Universal for ESL." To get involved in the discussions, please visit the SystemC community and forum pages. To learn more, please view the video tutorial presented at DVCon US and view a technical paper by Martin Barnasconi, SystemC AMS Working Group chair.
Public Review of SystemC Synthesis Subset
The SystemC Synthesizable Subset Version 1.4 is now open for public review and comment until July 13, 2015. Community feedback on the draft is welcome for consideration in the next release of this standard. The document can be downloaded here. For more information and to submit feedback, please visit the Working Group’s public forum.
