Accelera and OSCI (the SystemC standardization guys) announced their intent to merge
this last week. Interoperability standards at multiple levels are important, so this is indeed an important announcement. Stan Krolikoski, Group Director for EDA/IP Standards & Interoperability at Cadence, has written a brief history of the on/off relationship between Accelera and OSCI over the last decade. Interesting and compelling reading. Click here for the story.
Also, be sure to read Industry Insights’ blogger Richard Goering’s take on the announced merger plans. His conclusion: “a stronger EDA standards effort across multiple levels of abstraction.”
