Taiwan SystemC Users Group Hosts Third Meeting, November 14-15

Presentation on OSCI and IEEE SystemC Standards Kicks-Off Event

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA - November 7, 2011 - The Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI), an independent non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and advancing SystemC as an industry-standard language for electronic system-level (ESL) design, announces the third meeting of the Taiwan SystemC Users Group to be held November 14-15 at the at the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in Hsinchu and the National Cheng Kung University in Tainan, respectively. For more information and to register visit (Chinese) and (English).

WHAT: 3rd Taiwan SystemC Users Group Meeting

Sponsored by OSCI, the Taiwan SystemC Users Group Meeting is an industry event where system integrators, modeling experts, EDA suppliers and system-level design and verification architects and engineers can share and exchange knowledge on the industrial application and benefits of using the SystemC language for system-level modeling, design and verification.

WHEN: Monday, November 14 and Tuesday, November 15, 09:00 to 16:30.

November 14: ITRI, 195, Sec. 4, Chung Hsing Rd., Chutung, Hsinchu, Taiwan 31040 (R.O.C.)
November 15: National Cheng Kung University, No.1, University Road, Tainan City 701, Taiwan (R.O.C.)

The agenda features two tracks -- high-level synthesis and system-level modeling -- and includes eight technical presentations by leading universities and top electronics companies who will present the practical usage of the SystemC standard in applications related to semiconductor/IC design, embedded system design and mixed-signal system-level architecture.

Stan Krolikoski, OSCI board member and chair of the IEEE 1666 SystemC Working Group, will kick-off each event with a presentation about technical developments of the SystemC standard including an update on transaction-level modeling (TLM).
