Accellera Systems Initiative Forms Portable Stimulus Working Group

Elk Grove, Calif., USA, February 11, 2015 – Accellera Systems Initiative (Accellera), the electronics industry organization focused on electronic design automation (EDA) and intellectual property (IP) standards, announced it has established a new working group with the charter to develop the electronic industry’s first standard for portable test and stimulus. When completed and adopted, this standard will enable a single specification that will be portable from IP to full system and across multiple target implementations. 

The formation of the Portable Stimulus Working Group (PSWG), in accordance with Accellera procedures, follows a Proposed Working Group (PWG) activity that was open to industry input from May through December 2014. The PWG considered numerous aspects of the problem space, defined a list of more than 100 requirements for an appropriate solution, and recommended the establishment of a working group to develop a standard to meet as many of these requirements as feasible. A total of 37 individuals from 20 companies participated in the Portable Stimulus Proposed Working Group, representing semiconductor suppliers, systems houses, EDA vendors, and IP providers.

The Accellera Technical Committee Chair, Karen Pieper, has appointed Faris Khundakjie as Chair of the Portable Stimulus Working Group. The group will have a kick-off meeting March 5, 2015 to establish a mission statement, goals, milestones and roadmap, while developing a Design Objective Document based on the requirements provided by the Proposed Working Group. For more information about the group and to learn how to join and participate, visit http://www.accellera.org/activities/committees/portable_stimulus/.

“The wide range of companies involved in setting the requirements demonstrates how much interest both vendors and users have in this topic,” said Portable Stimulus Working Group Chair Faris Khundakjie. “I look forward to working with all members to deliver and deploy another successful specification from the industry’s leading standards organization.”

The Gateway to Connected Intelligent Vehicles

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and NXP Semiconductors

Connectivity is going to play a vital role in the future of connected and autonomous vehicles. One of the keys to the success of our future automotive designs will be the incorporation of service-oriented gateways. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Brian Carlson from NXP about the role that service-oriented gateways will play in the future of connected and autonomous vehicles and the details of NXP’s new S32G2 vehicle network processors that are going to make all of this possible.
