Accellera - Unification of EDA Standards

"Accellera was formed in 2000 through the unification of Open Verilog International and VHDL International to focus on identifying new standards, development of standards and formats, and to foster the adoption of new methodologies."

Accellera - Unification of EDA Standards
  • Accellera and The SPIRIT Consortium Announce Merge
  • Tutorial on the Design and Verification of Low Power SoCs
Design and Verification Conference & Exhibition

An independent organization with the mission to provide design and verification standards required by systems, semiconductor, IP and design tool companies to enhance a front-end design automation process.

The Next IC Design Methodology Transition Is Long Overdue

IC Design Methodology Transition
"From the mid-1970s to the late 1990s, these two factors combined to raise designer productivity from 4-5 gates/day up to 500-1000 gates/day. Figure 1 shows a slow increase in productivity that can be attributed to reuse and incremental tool improvements."
