Watch DVCon Co-Located Event Presentations
Two presentations from the second annual SystemC Day at DVCon 2011 are available now. The first presentation is the keynote by Jim Hogan, serial EDA entrepreneur at Vista Ventures, LLC and the second is an introduction to the emerging IEEE Std. 1666™, SystemC standard by Jim Aynsley at Doulos. SystemC Day brought users together to discuss the current state of the market for ESL design and the pending content of the SystemC standard that is current in final ballot by the IEEE.
To view the video presentations, you will need to register with the Open SystemC Initiative.

Keynote Presentation: “Navigating the SoC Era”
Abstract: SoCs are becoming ubiquitous in semiconductor development. Further, these SoCs are no longer processor-centric, and they are differentiated through the integration of design elements such as multi-CPU, multi-core, DSP cores, hardware accelerators, peripherals and software.
Industry expert and private investor Jim Hogan will discuss the semiconductor industry’s growing adoption of SoC design, and its reliance on diverse sources of hardware and software IP, developed both internally and externally.

The New IEEE 1666 SystemC Standard
Abstract: The IEEE SystemC Standard is currently being revised and updated, with the new standard due to be published later in 2011. This new version of the SystemC standard will for the first time include the TLM-1 and TLM-2.0 libraries. Meanwhile, OSCI is working to ensure that the SystemC Proof-of-Concept simulator tracks any changes to the IEEE standard. This presentation will give a concise technical summary of the most important new and revised features in the SystemC standard, will give a behind-the-scenes insight into the rationale behind the changes, and will show examples to illustrate the new features in action.
