SystemC Synthesis Working Group (SWG)


This group is responsible for the definition of a synthesizable subset of SystemC.

Chair: Andres Takach, Mentor Graphics
Vice-Chair: Michael Meredith, Cadence


In August 2009, this group released the Synthesis Subset Draft 1.3 standard synthesis subset draft for public review. The draft features several technical updates. Supported language constructs are now established, and a chapter on processes, clocks, and resets has been added. The draft also includes a discussion on abstraction levels that puts the concepts of the synthesizable subset in the context of the abstraction levels defined for TLM.

Public review of the draft is now open until May 15, 2015. The draft is available for download here.
