  1. After the SystemC Evolution Fika panel discussion on Model Libraries, the Accellera SystemC Common Practices Subgroup has announced a call for contributions. We would appreciate contributions to collect industry best practices on modelling registers in SystemC. Our preference would be to receive a prototype (though it does not have to be 'complete') and it should also be useful to the SystemC CCI Working Group as an example implementation of a register that can be used to define a Register-discovery/Inspection API. If you or your organization has a way to model registers that you would like to share with the rest of the community, then we would like to hear from you. The call for contributions began on July 2 and will remain open until the end of August 2021. We will gladly take contributions of any form, as long as it complies with the Accellera IP Rights Policy. It would also help if you can give us an indication as soon as possible that you or your organization would like to contribute. For more information or to send a contribution, please contact the SystemC Common Practices sub working group chair: mark.burton@greensocs.com
  2. Posting on behalf of Brent Sherman, IPSA WG Chair: Hi Everyone, On behalf of the IP Security Assurance Working Group, I'd like to welcome you to the feedback portal for the SA-EDI 1.0 Public Review. If you haven't yet downloaded the document, it is available here. In order for your voice to be heard, it is imperative that you provide your detailed feedback and questions via this forum before the end of the Public Review period, which will be May 21, 2021. We ask that you make use of the page and line numbers, as well as figure, table, syntax and example numbers/captions to make it clear exactly to what your comments refer. The WG is committed to analyzing all feedback and will make appropriate adjustments to the SA-EDI as deemed necessary. We will be monitoring this forum and will do our best to make this an interactive review as much as possible. We thank you for your participation in this review and appreciate your efforts to help us make SA-EDI 1.0 the best it can be. Regards, Brent
  3. Hi everyone, the link in this original post from 2012 has expired as the material is obsolete. Cadence has provided us with a new link to updated videos, which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/user/CadenceDesign/search?query=SystemVerilog All of the videos at that link are open to the public and most of them are tutorials in the spirit of the original set.
  4. On behalf of the IP Security Assurance (IPSA) Working Group, welcome to the public forum for the IPSA Whitepaper released on September 4th 2019. The Whitepaper details the objectives of the emerging IPSA standard and its approach along with real-case examples highlighting the methodology. We’ve staffed the forum with experts from the IPSA Working Group to answer your questions and bring your suggestions into the committee. We will be analyzing them as part of an effort to release the official IPSA standard. Read or download the Whitepaper here >
  5. The IEEE P1666 (SystemC) Working Group is now operating and looking for new members. If your company is a Corporate IEEE member and you use SystemC for your business, think about joining the P1666 Working Group to make the SystemC standard even better. If you have any questions about joining P1666, please contact Jerome Cornet (jerome.cornet@st.com), IEEE SystemC WG Chair, and Jonathan Goldberg (goldberg.j@ieee.org), IEEE representative for SystemC.
  6. The SystemC Synthesis Working Group is very active and is currently addressing several issues, including: Defining more clearly what elaboration behavior is supported for synthesis. More specifically, the dynamic module instantiation, binding, and naming, (e.g., using loops during elaboration). Considering what array/vector container to support. Looking at the use of C++ 11 attributes for synthesis directives. Analyzing the inclusion of AC datatypes as a numerical library. Our goal over the next 12 months is to see some convergence on a second version of the SystemC Synthesis standard with the issues resolved and based on more updated versions of the C++ standard such as C++ 11, 14, and possibly 17. At SystemC Evolution Day last October there were some datatype proposals presented (download using links below), and we’d like to get more feedback from the community on them. Suggestions and input are welcome in this forum. We look forward to hearing from you. SystemC Datatypes Proposal Algorithmic Datatypes Proposal
  7. The Accellera Board of Directors has approved Portable Test and Stimulus 1.0 as an Accellera standard. The Portable Test and Stimulus Standard (PSS) defines a specification to create a single representation of stimulus and test scenarios usable by a variety of users across many levels of integration under different configurations. This representation facilitates the generation of diverse implementations of a scenario that run on a variety of execution platforms, including, but not necessarily limited to, simulation, emulation, FPGA prototyping, and post-silicon. With this standard, users can specify a set of behaviors once and observe consistent behavior across multiple implementations. The new standard is available immediately to download for free. Release notes stating the differences between the Early Adopter II Release to the 1.0 standard are available. For more information, a press release and supporting industry quotes are also available. Accellera’s Portable Stimulus Community is also a resource for the latest information available on the new standard.
  8. The Accellera UVM Working Group has released the UVM 2017 0.9 reference implementation. This implementation is available as a SystemVerilog class library and is fully compatible with the IEEE 1800.2-2017 standard as defined in the Language Reference Manual. The library can be downloaded for free here. The IEEE 1800.2-2017 standard is available free of charge from the IEEE Get program, courtesy of Accellera. We encourage you to use this forum to provide feedback, ask questions, and engage in discussions.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. The first SystemC Evolution Day was a huge success! Check out the wrap-up and download the presentations.
  12. 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.
