IEEE Forms Two Working Groups to Standardize Steps in Electronic Design Automation Focusing on Mixed-Signal Language Extensions and Interoperability of Large Scale Integration, Package and Board Design

IEEE, the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, today announced that the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) approved the formation of the IEEE P1666.1™ SystemC Analog/Mixed-Signal (AMS) Extensions Working Group and the IEEE P2401™ LPB – Standard Format for Large Scale Integration (LSI)-Package-Board Interoperable Design Working Group. Due to their technical work in electronic design automation (EDA) standards development, both working groups are sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society’s Design Automation Standards Committee (DASC).

“These draft standards seek to aid in the development of more powerful and economically affordable electronics,” said Stan Krolikoski, chair of the DASC. “Building in affordability broadens access to electronics, so more people can expand their reach of information, automate daily tasks and much more. In addition, both working groups are a result of the IEEE-SA’s collaboration with Accellera Systems Initiative and the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA), which are organizations that support standards development for use by the global electronics industry.”

As the core standard, IEEE 1666™-2011 “Standard for SystemC Language Reference Manual” provides the high-level design and modeling language for digital electronics. Augmenting that standard, IEEE P1666.1 “SystemC Analog/Mixed-Signal (AMS) Extensions Language Reference Manual” is intended to allow SystemC to capture both analog and digital design content. With the objective to standardize the SystemC AMS extensions, IEEE P1666.1 defines AMS extensions as a powerful language option in the electronic system-level (ESL) design process.

“IEEE P1666.1 is expanding SystemC to model both digital and AMS functions,” said Martin Barnasconi, chair of the IEEE P1666.1 working group. “These two domains are increasingly found in System-on-a-chip (SoC) and embedded systems; therefore, this extension enables the modeling and design of these emerging heterogeneous systems more efficiently and effectively.”

IEEE P2401 “Standard Format for LSI-Package-Board Interoperable Design” seeks to standardize the data exchange format for the integrated circuit, the package and the board—the three components that make up the hardware system. This interoperable format will expedite the exchange of design information among the three components, thereby speeding up system design at lower cost.

“The intention of IEEE P2401 is to offer a common format that LSI-Package-Board design tools can use to exchange information and data seamlessly,” said Yoshinori Fukuba, chair of the IEEE P2401 working group. “The standard proposes to eliminate the multiple different input and output formats. As a result, the standard will allow for the use of a common interoperable format during the design process.”

Both working groups are actively seeking participants for the development of these standards.
