dasc background
DASC Background
  • DASC (Design Automation Standards Committee) founded in 1985 - http://www.dasc.org
    • Chartered under IEEE Computer Society
    • Responsible for the promotion and development of standards for the Design Automation Industry
    • First major work was VHDL - first standard non-proprietary hardware design language
    • Work on language based design continued with Verilog and Analog Mixed-signal versions of VHDL and Verilog.
    • Scope of work has broadened to include system level design, low power, and a recent emphasis on IP standards
      • IP-XACT from SPIRIT, IP encryption, IP quality
dasc membership
DASC Membership
  • Membership has continued to increase and also increased in diversity
    • Total membership ~100
    • 39 separate affiliations
    • Roughly 50% from EDA companies
    • Remaining 50% from users, other standards organizations, universities
    • All major EDA companies and many large user companies are represented.
new activities active standards program
New Activities – Active Standards Program
  • VHDL 1076-2008 approved - new features for verification and IP based design
  • VHDL-AMS 1076.1 standard approved
  • e Verification language P1647 updated and approved.
  • Three new WGs approved
    • P1801 - Design & Verification of Low-Power IC’s (UPF)
    • P1778 – Esterel v7 LRM (formal semantics for design)
    • P1699 – Rosetta System Level Language
  • Two new IP related Working Groups started
    • IP Encryption
    • IP Quality
    • Expanding activity into important area of IP standards
  • Standard for IC Delay and Power Calculation, P1481 in ballot
    • Extends calculation models to latest sub-micron technology
  • Total of 13 Technical Standards Groups Active Now.
new activities operational
New Activities - Operational
  • Maintaining schedule of monthly meetings since Nov 2006
    • Ensures a forum for raising and quickly dealing with any issues
    • Has encouraged greater participation – all major participants have been active
    • Meetings conducted formally and per P&Ps
  • Material on new IEEE patent policy and dominance policy made generally available
    • Closer tracking and posting of member affiliations
    • Greater awareness of patent issues among members
    • Posting of up to date roster and status on web site
dasc plans
DASC Plans
  • Continuous improvement of governance, outreach, and growth
    • Refinement of Policies and Procedures to meet changing industry needs including patent and IPR protection.
    • Broadening technical areas to include more physical design aspects as these become more important and integrated into the overall design and manufacturing process.
    • Strengthening relationships with other industry and standards groups
      • Currently close ties to Accellera, JEITA, SPIRIT, IEC, OSCI, IEEE-SA
      • Looking to do expand ties to China and Korea Standards Groups
    • Encouraging broader membership by being responsive to new industry requirements.
      • Provide both Entity (corporate) and Individual Working Groups and Ballots
