Taiwan SystemC Users Group Hosts Third Meeting, November 14-15, 2011

Presentation on OSCI and IEEE SystemC Standards Kicks off Event

SAN JOSE, CA and HSINCHU, TAIWAN and TAINAN, TAIWAN--(Marketwire - Nov 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 (NCKU) in Tainan, respectively. For more information and to register, visit (Chinese) and (English).

3rd Taiwan SystemC Users Group Meeting (TSCUG)
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.

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).
