Conference Coverage

Panelists clash over virtual platform standards

By Richard Goering


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. …

Story at

  • 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



  • 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




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
