  1. The Accellera SystemC Language Working Group has released the proposed SystemC 2.3.2 for testing and feedback from the community. This is a maintenance release with some new features including a foundation for C++11/14 enablement, a centralized global name registration enabling CCI naming requirements, new TLM socket and sc_signal base classes, and updated compiler and platform support including Windows DLL support and an experimental CMake build system. There are also many bug-fixes and general clean-up. Licensed under Apache 2.0, the release package contains the SystemC class library and the regression test suite. It can be downloaded here. The review period is open until May 31, 2017. Feedback is welcome and can be submitted either by email to review-systemc@lists.accellera.org or via this forum.
  2. Please note the review period ended March 30, 2018. The Accellera Portable Stimulus Working Group (PSWG) is proud to announce the release for public review of the latest preliminary version of the Portable Test and Stimulus Standard. This Early Adopter II release includes additional work done by the PSWG since the release in June 2017 of the first Early Adopter version, reflecting progress on a wide range of issues to improve the standard, including user feedback on the EA version. The PSWG continues to work to ensure a robust, feature-rich release which will enable users and vendors to benefit from the powerful productivity-increasing technology with the confidence that comes from using an approved Accellera Standard. The Portable Test and Stimulus Standard defines a domain-specific language (DSL) and an accompanying semantically-equivalent C++ library to create a single representation of stimulus and test scenarios, usable by a variety of users across different levels of integration under different configurations. It will permit the generation of multiple scenarios from a single specification of test intent and allow tools to create different implementations of a scenario that run on a variety of execution platforms, including, but not limited to, simulation, emulation, FPGA prototyping, post-silicon and virtual platforms. With this standard, users can specify a set of behaviors once, from which multiple implementations may be derived. The Portable Test and Stimulus Standard is still a work in progress. We invite further public review and comment on the Early Adopter II release to help move us closer to our goal of an approved 1.0 standard. The standard includes features to allow: Abstract behavioral specification and scheduling Data structures, constrained randomization and data flow modeling Scenario-level randomization from abstract partial specifications to preserve critical intent Encapsulation, composition and reuse of modeling components With this standard, users can specify a set of behaviors once and observe consistent behavior across multiple implementations. For more information on the Portable Test and Stimulus Standard download the tutorial, “Portable Test and Stimulus: The Next Level of Verification Productivity is Here.” Members of the Working Group presented the tutorial at DVCon U.S. on Monday, February 26, 2018. The Public Review Period will be open until Friday, March 30, 2018. Please provide your feedback, ask questions and interact on issues regarding the Early Adopter II release via the Accellera Portable Stimulus Forum. All comments will be reviewed by the PSWG.

  3. UVM-SystemC 1.0-beta1 has been released for public review. This update contains compatibility updates to SystemC 2.3.2 and newer compiler versions. It also has a HDL path API implementation, update finish on completion mechanism, an updated LRM, UVM backdoor for SystemC dummy registers uvm_sc_reg, and aligned reporting API with UVM 1.2. Download it here >. The review will remain open until February 7, 2018. Feedback is welcome and can be posted here on this Community Forum.
  4. The draft standard SystemC CCI Configuration LRM is now available for public review. This standard defines both essential interfaces and convenience building blocks for configuring SystemC models in a way that enables compliant tools to setup, query, control, and track configuration information in a simple and effective manner. Supplemental materials in the review kit include an overview presentation, proof-of-concept implementation, and more than 20 examples. For more detailed information about SystemC CCI, read this article > Download the LRM here > The review period will remain open until March 18, 2018. Technical feedback and questions from the public can be posted here in this Community Forum or emailed to cci-review@lists.accellera.org.
  5. The SystemC Verification Working Group (VWG) has made available an early UVM-SystemC Language Reference Manual (LRM) accompanied by a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) implementation for public review. The purpose of this public review is to obtain feedback on the LRM and PoC distribution. The working group is looking for discrepancies versus the standard and simple install/documentation issues against the supported platforms. For details, FAQ and to download the library please visit the VWG page on the Accellera web site.

    New Event - SystemC Evolution Day 2016

    The SystemC Evolution Day is a new, full-day technical workshop on the evolution of SystemC standards to advance the SystemC ecosystem. It will be held on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 in Munich, Germany. In several in-depth sessions, selected current and future standardization topics around SystemC will be discussed in order to accelerate their progress for Accellera/IEEE standard’s inclusion. The new SystemC Evolution Day is intended as a lean, user-centric, hands-on forum bringing together the experts from the SystemC user community and the Accellera Working Groups to advance the SystemC standards in a full day workshop. View complete details and register >
  8. The 2016 Call for Papers and Call for Tutorials are now live! Paper Submissions will open March 15, and Tutorial Submissions will open on March 22. Travel info and program can be found at www.dvcon-europe.org.

  10. To view this announcement on the IEEE web site click here. Purpose Verification components and environments are currently created in different forms, making interoperability among verification tools and/or geographically-dispersed design environments both time consuming to develop and error prone. The results of the UVM standardization effort will improve interoperability and reduce the cost of repurchasing and rewriting Intellectual Property (IP) for each new project or electronic design automation tool, as well as make it easier to reuse verification components. Overall, the UVM standardization effort will lower verification costs and improve design quality throughout the industry. Need for the Project As the electronics industry builds more complex systems involving large numbers of components, the challenge of verifying such systems multiplies by orders of magnitude. In order to bring costs and time to market down, standardization must happen to enable as much modularity and reuse across verification components as possible. The UVM standard will propagate an API that will manage this explosion in verification complexity, allowing the entire industry to write and reuse verification components both (a) internally in companies having geographically widespread teams, and (externally between vendors and user companies in the electronics industry, who are developing, selling and using verification components Call for Contribution Please review the IEEE P1800.2 ™ PAR and, if you are interested in participating, Register for the first working group meeting scheduled to occur on August 6th, 2015 from 12pm – 2pm Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) / 9am – 11am Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). Please feel free to connect with the Working Group Chair, Thomas Alsop at thomas.r.alsop@intel.com or IEEE-SA staff Jonathan Goldberg at goldberg.j@ieee.org directly for further information.

    Accellera Web Site Migration

    On Friday, March 27, 2015 Accellera will be migrating www.accellera.org to a new hosting platform. The DNS update is expected to take 24 to 48 hours to propagate throughout the internet. As a result, the web site may be temporarily unavailable at some point over the weekend. Note that there will not be any interruption to the Accellera members area Kavi Workspace, email reflectors, working group tools, or forums. Only the public web pages are moving. You can continue to log in to your account as usual during the migration. The web site will look almost identical after the move with a subtle face-lift, and will allow better viewing and navigation on mobile devices.
