Portable Stimulus Specification in Public Review
An Early Adopter version of the new Portable Stimulus Specification is now available for Public Review.
The Early Adopter specification provides a comprehensive explanation of the new Portable Stimulus Domain Specific language. This declarative language is designed for abstract behavioral description using actions; their inputs, outputs and resource dependencies; and their composition into use cases including data and control flows. These use cases capture test intent that can be analyzed to produce a wide range of possible legal scenarios for multiple execution platforms (e.g., virtual platforms, simulation, emulation, prototypes, silicon, etc.). There is also a semantically-equivalent C++ Class Library to specify the same declarative abstract behavior descriptions in an environment that may be more comfortable to some users. The Early Adopter specification also includes a preliminary mechanism to capture the programmer’s view of a peripheral device, independent of the underlying platform, further enhancing portability.
The Portable Stimulus Working Group is actively seeking public feedback on the specification. Questions, comments and suggestions can be posted on the Accellera Portable Stimulus Community Forum. The public review period ends September 15, 2017.
Shishpal Rawat Receives 2017 Accellera Leadership Award
Congratulations Shishpal Rawat, recipient of the 2017 Accellera Leadership Award. The award was presented at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) during the Accellera breakfast and town hall meeting on Tuesday, June 20.
Shishpal became chair of Accellera in June, 2010. As chair of Accellera, he oversaw the consolidation of standards bodies, namely the merger with OSCI, as well as the acquisition of the OCP standard. He also helped to extend the relationship with the IEEE Standards Association’s IEEE Get Program for an additional 10 years, ensuring continued public access to view and download current EDA standards at no charge, courtesy of Accellera.
