SystemC AMS DAY, May 12, Dresden, Germany

Technical Presentations From NXP, ST, Infineon and Fraunhofer Highlight Agenda

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 28, 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 first SystemC AMS Day will be held Thursday, May 12 at the Hotel Königshof in Dresden, Germany. For more information visit

WHAT/WHEN: SystemC AMS Day, Thursday, May 12, 8.00 to 19.00. Sponsored by OSCI, SystemC AMS Day is a free 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 emerging SystemC AMS 1.0 standard as the new modeling language supporting mixed-signal electronic system-level design and verification methodologies.

The event is organized by NXP, ST, Infineon and Fraunhofer and features industry speakers who will present the practical usage of the SystemC AMS standard in automotive, sensor, wired, wireless and other applications related to semiconductor/IC design, embedded system design and/or mixed-signal system-level architecture or concept development.


The agenda features twelve technical presentations by leading universities and top electronics companies including NXP, ST, Infineon and Fraunhofer. To view the complete agenda, presentation abstracts and full agenda go to
