IEEE releases SystemC AMS standard as IEEE 1666.1-2016

Accellera Systems Initiative, the electronics industry organisation focused on the creation and adoption of electronic design automation (EDA) and intellectual property (IP) standards, has revealed that SystemC AMS has been released by the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) as IEEE 1666.1-2016.

The SystemC AMS standard provides unique capabilities for the design and modeling of analogue/mixed-signal (AMS) applications at higher levels of design abstraction. The SystemC AMS extensions define a uniform and standardized modeling approach that can be used in combination with digitally-oriented SystemC-based design methods, supporting a design refinement methodology for functional modeling, architecture exploration, and virtual prototyping of embedded AMS systems.

"We are very proud of the efforts of the SystemC AMS Working Group in getting the standard to this significant milestone," said Shishpal Rawat, chair of Accellera. "The SystemC AMS language standard is the result of years of active development and use, and as it transitions to IEEE 1666.1-2016, we look forward to its continued adoption worldwide under the IEEE Get Programme."

Since its inception in 2010, the Accellera-sponsored IEEE Get Programme has resulted in more than 60,000 downloads, providing no-cost access of electronic design and verification standards to engineers and chip designers worldwide. The IEEE-SA and Accellera recently extended their partnership for an additional 10 years to include a total of 10 standards, with IEEE 1666.1-2016 being the first addition under the expanded agreement.

IEEE 1666.1-2016 is available for download at no cost.
