OSCI Teleconference to Review Analog-Mixed Signal Draft 1 Standard

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, announced it will host an open teleconference with the SystemC Community to present, discuss and review the Analog-Mixed Signal (AMS) Draft 1 standard. The public review period ends March 31st.

Open Teleconference with the SystemC Community regarding AMS Draft 1 Standard
TUESDAY, March 24 – AMS Draft 1 Teleconference (open to the SystemC Community)
17:00-19:00 – Central Europe; 12:00-2:00 pm – US Eastern; 9:00-11:00 am – US Pacific

The agenda will include a discussion on the motivation behind the standardization of AMS extensions followed by an introduction of the standard and language reference manual (LRM). The session concludes with an open question and answer period.

A presentation will be available on the public AMSWG page online.

Registration is required for this event. To register and for and dial-in details visit: www.mod-marketing.com/osci/event6.php.

The AMS draft 1 standard is available for download under open-source license. The worldwide SystemC community is encouraged to provide feedback using the AMS discussion forum at www.systemc.org/Discussion_Forums/ams_forum/.

The AMS draft 1 standard has been developed by the OSCI AMS working group and proposes unique capabilities for the design and modeling of embedded analog/mixed-signal applications at various levels of design abstraction. These AMS extensions will provide a uniform and standardized modeling approach, which can be used in combination with digitally-oriented ESL design methods, supporting a design refinement methodology for functional modeling, architecture exploration, and virtual prototyping of embedded analog/mixed-signal systems.
