Summit Design Upgrades Its Membership in the Open SystemC Initiative to the Corporate Level; Assumes Driving Role in OSCI With Increased Investment and Commitment to SystemC

LOS ALTOS, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 13, 2006— Summit Design, Inc., a leading provider of electronic system-level (ESL) and hardware description language (HDL) design solutions, announced today that it has upgraded its membership in the Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI) from the Associate Corporate level to the Corporate level. Summit plans to take a more driving role within OSCI by working with the other board members on strategies for continued development and proliferation of SystemC. Summit will continue its technical contributions to the various working groups, with special emphasis upon transaction-level modeling (TLM).

"For the past several years, Summit Design has been very active within OSCI, working to contribute to the standardization process while assisting growing numbers of SystemC users to successfully adopt SystemC-based tools and methodologies," said Emil Girczyc, president and CEO of Summit Design, Inc. "Today, Summit offers a robust suite of SystemC-based solutions for performance modeling, architectural design, and graphical SystemC authoring while also providing an advanced integrated development environment (IDE) for SystemC debugging and verification. Given Summit's increased investment and commitment to SystemC, the upgrade in our membership was a natural progression."

Summit has raised SystemC awareness and promoted adoption though various seminars and SystemC workshops around the globe. In addition, Summit works closely with other SystemC players to build state-of-art SystemC-based ESL flows and solutions.

"OSCI has seen a tremendous increase in the production use of SystemC, along with continued strong growth in the SystemC ecosystem," stated Mike Meredith, president of OSCI. "We are pleased that Summit has upgraded their membership to the corporate level as it is through the many generous contributions of our members and language supporters that we have enabled a healthy SystemC movement."

Summit plans to lend strong support to the deployment of the IEEE 1666 standard and to take a deepening support role within the TLM Working Group. The company will strive to promote interoperability and the openness of solutions in the system-level design space. Summit also hopes to promote stronger convergence between the synthesis, verification, TLM and language working groups.
