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.
