Accellera Announces Public Source Code Repository

SystemC Reference Implementation to be first publicly available sources in GitHub

Elk Grove, Calif., July 31, 2019 — Accellera Systems Initiative (Accellera), the electronics industry organization focused on the creation and adoption of electronic design automation (EDA) and intellectual property (IP) standards, announced today the establishment of a public repository for supplemental material related to its standards.

“We have seen a great deal of interest from developers that would like access to our open source reference implementations directly from a code repository so that they can create their own fork for easy adaptation to their specific projects,” stated Martin Barnasconi, Accellera Technical Committee Chair.  “The public repository will provide a more direct interaction with the community and offers a platform to quickly resolve issues or bugs found. We envision other Accellera working groups to follow with additional open source implementations.”

The Accellera public repository will be hosted at GitHub and will initially contain the SystemC reference implementation.  It will be available to the community to clone or fork for their specific use.  The public repository will also contain the latest bug fixes.  Alongside the new public repository, the Accellera private repository remains available for Accellera member companies, containing the latest enhancements and new features. Accellera will continue to release its supplemental material via the Accellera download pages and will update the public repositories at these release dates.

Series 2 Product Security

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Silicon Labs

Side channel attacks such as differential power analysis (DPA) present a serious threat to our embedded designs. If we want to defend our systems from DPA and similar attacks, it is critical that we have a secure boot and root of trust. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Gregory Guez from Silicon Labs about DPA, secure debug, and the EFR32 Series 2 Platform.
