IEEE Standards Association and Accellera Systems Initiative Team to Deliver Revised SystemVerilog Standard through IEEE Get Program
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
(at the 2013 Design and Verification Conference) -- Accellera Systems
Initiative (Accellera) announce today they have once again partnered
with the IEEE (News - Alert) Standards Association (IEEE-SA), a globally recognized
standards-setting body within the IEEE, to deliver a leading electronic
design and verification standard to engineers and chip designers
worldwide. The revised version of the IEEE 1800™ "Standard
SystemVerilog-Unified Hardware Design, Specification, and Verification
Language Reference Manual" is now available through the IEEE Get
Program, which grants public access to view and download select IEEE
standards at no charge.
IEEE 1800 is the third standard to be delivered in partnership with the
IEEE-SA Get program, joining two others: Get IEEE 1685™ Standard:
IP-XACT, Standard Structure for Packaging, Integrating, and Reusing IP
within Tool Flows, and Get IEEE 1666™ Standard: SystemC® Language
"We are pleased to once again partner with the IEEE-SA to make this
important standard available to the worldwide design community," said
Shishpal Rawat, chair of Accellera. "Working together, we serve the
global industry to deliver standards that increase designer productivity
and lower the cost of product development."
"We applaud the dedicated work of Accellera and look forward to further
strengthening our partnership to make other standards available through
the IEEE Get Program, which has become a key in standards adoption and
implementation worldwide," said Konstantinos Karachalios, managing
director of IEEE-SA. "It is through this type of collaboration that we
serve industry best and truly advance technology. The mrket-driven
effort to refine and make IEEE 1800 freely available to the world is
emblematic of 'OpenStand,'
a modern paradigm for global, open standards that the IEEE-SA supports.
Standards such as IEEE 1800 that are developed in the spirit of the
OpenStand principles are proven in their ability to accelerate cycles of
technology innovation and market growth."

Beginning immediately, companies, universities, research institutions,
and individuals worldwide can freely access the standard and develop
applications for SystemVerilog tools and technologies. To download a PDF

About Accellera Systems Initiative
Systems Initiative (Accellera) is an independent, not-for profit
organization dedicated to creating design and verification standards
required by systems, semiconductor, intellectual property (IP), and
electronic design automation (EDA) companies. The organization
accelerates the development of standards that increase designer
productivity and lower the cost of product development. As part of its
ongoing partnership with the IEEE,
standards developed by Accellera are contributed to the IEEE
Standards Association for formal standardization and ongoing
