New SystemC Library Now Available from Accellera Systems Initiative

Proof-of-Concept Library is compatible with IEEE Std. 1666™-2011 Standard,   includes Transaction-Level Modeling  

Napa, Calif., USA, 16 July 2012 — Accellera Systems Initiative announces the release of version 2.3.0 of its SystemC open source proof-of-concept library, now available at no charge to the worldwide electronic design community. Compatible with the newly revised IEEE 1666 "Standard SystemC Language Reference Manual," announced by the IEEE Standards Association in November 2011, version 2.3.0 provides a number of important new features, including support for transaction-level modeling (TLM), a critical approach to enable high level and more efficient design of complex ICs and SoCs in a single library.

New extensive process control features enable modeling of concepts such as power domains and abstract schedulers. A new first-class events list and a new container for SystemC objects simplify the description of generic and scalable models. In addition, an improved simulation API and a new thread safety mechanism will allow much better interaction with external tools and support for multi-threading.

Documentation has been reorganized for clarity, and there is a new document highlighting the features added for compatibility with the latest version of the SystemC standard. The library, installation notes and readme files have been updated to support installation on the latest operating systems and compilers. To ensure a high quality release, the library has been reviewed and tested by members of the SystemC Language Working Group, and feedback from the recently completed public review has been incorporated in the release.

“Accellera Systems Initiative encourages SystemC users and tool suppliers everywhere to move to the new IEEE 1666 standard,” said David Black, chair of the SystemC Language Working Group. “I would like to recognize the members of the SystemC Language Working Group, which is composed of system and semiconductor engineers, vendors and educators worldwide. We appreciate their contribution to the electronic design community and their diligent work in making this new library possible.”

The standard may be obtained at no charge via the Accellera Systems Initiative-sponsored GET IEEE program by visiting http://www.accellera.org/downloads/ieee/. The newly released version 2.3.0 of the open source proof-of-concept library (and the corresponding regression suite) may be downloaded by visiting http://www.accellera.org/downloads/standards.
