SESSION 4T
SystemC Standardization Update Including UVM for SystemC
Speaker:
Andy Goodrich - Cadence Design Systems, Inc.
Organizer:
Adam Sherer - Accellera Systems Initiative
The ever-increasing complexity of electronic systems is adding pressure to move to an abstraction above RTL. Recognizing this need, Accellera Systems Initiative member companies are evolving the IEEE 1666 SystemC standard to do just that.

Based itself on the ISO/IEC 14882-2003 standard, SystemC IEEE 1666-2011 provides the language structure to implement transaction level modeling (TLM).  As the user community put this standard into practical use, it also realized that more could be done to improve and expand the standard.  Today, Accellera is working on standards for analog modeling, a synthesizable subset, model-tool interface, and verification.

This tutorial will provide an update on the work in each area and user experiences applying SystemC. If you want a glimpse of the future, attend this tutorial!
