OSCI Celebrates 10 Years, New Educational Videos and More



OSCI Celebrates 10-Year Service to ESL Community

Dear Graham,

OSCI celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year, a decade marked by a series of standards accomplishments including official IEEE approval of the SystemC language as IEEE Std. 1666-2005(tm) and the release of the OSCI transaction-level modeling standard, TLM-2.0.

As longtime EDA analyst Gary Smith said in 1999, "SystemC will be the ESL design language of the future." Ten years later he provides his perspective on OSCI's important role in creating the standards to drive ESL.
