Accellera Announces Election of Officers for 2008/9

NAPA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Oct 28, 2008 -- Accellera, the electronics industry organization focused on Electronic Design Automation (EDA) standards, announced today that its Board of Directors elected officers for its 2008/9 membership year earlier this month.

Shrenik Mehta, Senior Director, Frontend Technologies & OpenSPARC program, Microelectroncs, Sun Microsystems, was re-elected Chair. Dennis Brophy, Director of Strategic Business Development, Mentor Graphics, was re-elected Vice-Chair. Karen Bartleson, Senior Director, Interoperability, Synopsys, was elected Secretary, and Yatin Trivedi, Senior Director, Strategic Alliances, Magma Design Automation was elected Treasurer.

"Accellera continues to be a very significant player in developing EDA standards that improve electronic design productivity," remarked Shrenik Mehta, Accellera chair. "I am again honored to be elected chair for a fourth term and to be part of the group that defines and delivers electronic design standards that benefit the global electronics industry."

Accellera Member companies for 2008/9 are listed at Accellera provides a framework that enables the technical work of its committees, logistics and the infrastructure for obtaining and distributing funds and resources for EDA standards that, when approved, are available to everyone in the electronics community at no cost.

About Accellera's Electronic Design Standards

Accellera has transferred its completed standards work to the IEEE and continues to use this strategy as part of the roadmap for all of its standards.

To date, seven Accellera EDA standards have been ratified by the IEEE -- Hardware Description Language (HDL) standards, Verilog or IEEE 1364, VHDL or IEEE1076, Property Specification Language (PSL) or IEEE 1850 and SystemVerilog or IEEE 1800; Standard Delay Format (SDF) or IEEE 1497; Delay and Power Calculation System (DPCS) or IEEE 1481 and Advanced Library Format (ALF) or IEEE 1603. In addition, two standards are active in IEEE working groups: Open Compression Interface (OCI) or IEEE 1718, and Unified Power Format (UPF) or IEEE P1801. Accellera's most recent IEEE advanced design and verification language standards include the SystemVerilog and PSL standards.

About Accellera's Technical Subcommittees

Accellera's Technical Subcommittees produce effective and efficient standards for today's advanced IC designs. Participation comes from Accellera member companies, industry contributors, and independents. Technical contributors typically have many years of practical experience with IC design and developing and using design automation tools.

Accellera's Technical Subcommittees include: Interface (ITC), Open Compression Interface (OCI), Open Verification Language (OVL), Property Specification Standard (PSL), SystemVerilog, Unified Coverage Interoperability (UCI), Unified Power Format (UPF), Verilog Analog/Mixed-Signal (Verilog-AMS), Verification Intellectual Property (VIP) and VHDL.
