Conference Coverage

Panelists clash over virtual platform standards

By Richard Goering

04/07/08

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Panelists at the Multicore Expo here April 2 agreed that standards are needed to ensure model interoperability for virtual platforms, but disagreed over the best way to achieve them. …

Background

Background

  • I joined the IEEE Council on EDA in 2006

  • Organized a study group to look into EDA standards

    • Made observations

    • Explored some ideas

    • Now considering next steps

  • Hope EDPS session will provide additional input

  • Looking for your input today and in the future


Council on eda objectives

Council on EDA - Objectives

  • Consolidate EDA activities in IEEE

  • Continue improving conferences and publications

  • Initiate new complementary activities

  • Cooperate with other professional organizations

  • Enhance the infrastructure for the EDA professional

  • Expand globally to reach more of the EDA community


Eda standard development today

EDA Standard Development Today

Early Discussion / Planning

IEEE Standard Process

GAP

Accellera

  • Initiating a Project

  • Project Authorization Request (PAR)

  • Working Group Extension Requests

  • Has Your PAR Been Approved?

  • Working Group Development

  • Writing the Draft

  • Balloting the Draft

  • Final Approval

  • Publishing the Standard

  • Reaffirming the Standard

  • IEEE Standards Forms

Si2

VSIA

SPIRIT


Initial approach

Initial Approach

  • Form group to study EDA standards development

  • Talk to IEEE groups

    • DASC and TTSC from Computer Society

    • IEEE Standards Association

  • Meet with outside groups

    • Accellera, OSCI, Si2, SPIRIT, VSIA

  • Host regular joint discussions

    • Identify concerns and issues

    • Explore ways to improve EDA standards development


Study group observations

Study Group Observations

  • Need open inclusive process for best ideas

  • Need ability to move fast in early stages

  • Standards require ecosystem to have impact

  • IP has emerged as important issue

  • Standards development requires funding

  • Not always aware of best IEEE procedures

  • IEEE allows conflicting competing standards


Possible council next steps

Possible Council Next Steps

  • Bring together leaders of the EDA standards community

    • Share views on the needs for EDA standards

    • Review progress and bottlenecks

    • Share best practices and procedures

    • Define actions to make improvements

  • Link EDA standards with Council activities

    • Leverage Council conferences, publications, community

    • Identify the need for new standards in emerging areas

    • Promote adoption of existing standards

    • Provide education and supporting infrastructure
