Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP), the organization delivering a common standard for intellectual property core interfaces that facilitate “plug and play” SoC design, and CircuitSutra, experts in SystemC modeling and embedded software development, along with Imperas, the company providing the infrastructure for the future of software virtual platforms and enabling the next generation of embedded software development, announced the availability of a Virtual Platform Demo created utilizing OCP-IP’s advanced Modeling Kit. This example platform acts as a guide to OCP-IP members enabling them to quick-start their ESL activities using the OCP-IP TLM Modeling Kit; which is fully compatible with OSCI’s TLM 2.0.1. Both the kit and Virtual Platform examples are free to both OCP-IP members and non-members.
The Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI), an independent non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and advancing SystemC as an industry-standard language for electronic system-level (ESL) design, released the SystemC Analog/Mixed-signal (AMS) extensions language standard, AMS 1.0. The AMS 1.0 standard is the first modeling language targeting system-level design and verification to describe analog/mixed-signal behavior as natural extension to existing SystemC-based design methodologies.
CoFluent Design, a leading Electronic System Level (ESL) company that provides system-level modeling and simulation to accelerate innovation in embedded devices, and No Magic, Inc., the leading global provider of integrated modeling software and services, announced that they have initiated a partnership agreement to integrate the MagicDraw UML (Unified Modeling Language) modeler with the CoFluent Studio embedded system modeling and SystemC-based simulation environment.
