Open SystemC Initiative Sponsors Events at DATE

The Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI), an independent non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and advancing SystemC(TM) as an industry-standard language for electronic system-level (ESL) design, invites the industry to a pair of informative and educational SystemC-related events during the DATE Conference.

OSCI will sponsor two industry events on Tuesday, April 17:

  • SystemC Lunch Panel
    1300 – 1430, Room Gallieni 2, Acropolis, Nice, France

    Virtual Platform Exchange between Silicon Providers and OEMs: What’s Expected from OSCI TLM 2.0
    A panel of experts will discuss virtual platform exchange between silicon providers and OEMs and explore the issues that initiated the use of transaction-level modeling (TLM) to develop their current approach. Panelists will also discuss the limitations they face today and the improvements they anticipate with the release of the upcoming OSCI TLM 2.0 standard.

    Moderator: Gabrielle Saucier, Design and Reuse
    Panelists include: Tero Rissa, Nokia; Erwin de Kock, NXP; Bernard Candaele, Thales; and Loic Le Toumelin, TI.

  • 15th European SystemC Users Group (ESCUG) Meeting
    1800 – 2130, Room Thalie, Acropolis, Nice, France

    Users and guest speakers from industry and academia will present their insights into using SystemC and its applications. Presenting companies include ARM, Doulos, Nokia and Infineon. Agenda »

Events are sponsored by ARM, Cadence, CoWare, Doulos, Forte, Mentor Graphics and Synopsys.

The events will be held in conjunction with the DATE Conference taking place at the Acropolis fairground and convention center in Nice, France.

Worldwide momentum and SystemC adoption is growing. These OSCI sponsored events demonstrate the strength of the organization and its dedication to providing mechanisms that allow collaboration and information exchange among members of the SystemC community.

The lunch panel and ESCUG meeting are free to industry professionals and media with pre-registration.

The Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI) is an independent, not-for-profit association composed of a broad range of organizations dedicated to supporting and advancing SystemC as an open industry standard for electronic system-level (ESL) modeling, design and verification. SystemC is a C++ class library that supports design from concept to implementation in hardware and software. The IEEE Standards Association recently approved the standard for the SystemC library as IEEE Std. 1666(TM)-2005. As a result of a partnership between OSCI and the IEEE, the IEEE 1666-2005 Standard SystemC Language Reference Manual (LRM) is now available free of charge on the IEEE website.
