"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.
Summit Design's industry-leading ESL and HDL solutions enable SOC companies to deliver products that meet system-level performance and power targets with dramatically reduced schedule risk. Summit's products address engineering challenges met during the specification and implementation design phases of complex hardware/software systems. System Architect(TM) enables massive increases in design complexity and performance by analyzing architectural tradeoffs to arrive at optimized system specifications. Vista(TM) and Visual Elite(TM) ensure swift, successful design modeling and implementation in SystemC, Verilog, and VHDL. Top electronics companies worldwide, including leaders in the wireless, automotive, and consumer electronics space, have achieved dramatic reductions in design cycle time through their use of Summit's products.
