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 Reference Manual.

"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."


Get IEEE 1800™ Standard: SystemVerilog Language Reference Manual

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 copy, visit http://standards.ieee.org/about/get/index.html#get1800.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
