Accellera Standards Technical Update
Presented at DVCon Europe 2015 on November 11, 2015.

Experts in the Accellera standardization give a technical update on the recent standardization activities in the various working groups: Universal Verification Methodology, Portable Stimulus, IP-XACT, and SystemC. Presenters: Uwe Simm, Cadence Design Systems; Sharon Rosenberg, Cadence Design Systems; Erwin de Kock, NXP Semiconductors; Philipp A. Hartmann, Intel.

 

System-Level Modeling for Today and Tomorrow with SystemC
Presented at DVCon Europe 2015 on November 11, 2015.

This presentation starts with an update and overview about recent standardization activities from the different SystemC-related Accellera and IEEE Working Groups, giving a condensed overview about status and plans around SystemC. Presenters: Philipp A Hartmann, Intel; Martin Barnasconi, NXP; Stephan Schulz, Fraunhofer.

The presentation continues with "What is Needed Beyond SystemC and TLM-2.0 for Bigger Systems?" TLM-2.0 is a well-defined abstraction level to model on-chip buses and components that are connected to these buses and interconnects. To enable proliferation of VPs that support as many as possible use cases these off-chip interfaces have to be standardized to enable fast & cheap platform assembly. This tutorial addresses the (automotive) use cases and requirements of systems using these off-chip interfaces. Specific scenarios are presented that are used to assess implementation alternatives of such a standard. Finally, some possible solutions for modeling off-chip buses are presented. Preseners: Jérôme Cornet, STMicrolectronics; Martin Schnieringer, Robert Bosch GmbH.

 

Panel Discussion: What is Needed to Drive Design Efficiency?

At the annual Accellera Luncheon at DVCon 2015, invited panelists discussed current practices in design efficiency as well as where standards need to go in order to fill gaps in efficiency.  Moderated by John Aynsley of Doulos. Panelists: Stuart Sutherland, Sutherland HDL; Mike Schaffstein, Qualcomm; Pat Sheridan, Synopsys; Andy Goodrich, Cadence; Bryan Bowyer, Calypto.

 

Panel Discussion: The Future of Mixed Signal Verification: From Manual Simulations to Full Regression

At the annual Accellera Luncheon at DVCon 2014, invited panelists presented and discussed emerging techniques that would enable the digital-centric mixed-signal community to reach their next level of verification. Moderated by Helene Thibieroz of Synopsys, Inc. Panelists: Scott Little, Intel Corp.; Scott Morrison, Texas Instruments, Inc.; Neyaz Khan, Maxim Integrated; Martin O'Leary, Qualcomm, Inc.

 

UVM UVM 1.2 Roundtable

At the annual Accellera Breakfast at DAC 2014, John Aynsley, CTO of Doulos, engaged panelists Rich Newton, Ericsson, Amol Bhinge, Freescale, Colin McKellar, Imagination, and Mohamed Elmalaki, Intel in a lively discussion on UVM usage, migration planning and potential future enhancements.
