Standards update from IP 07
Found in: IEEE Design and Test of Computers
By Victor Berman
Issue Date:March 2008
pp. 192-193
Compared to other areas of electronics design, the IP industry has lagged in the development of comprehensive standards for description, integration, verification, and evaluation. This lag has stifled the development of automation tools, which have been so...
 
DASC standards track IP-based design trends
Found in: IEEE Design and Test of Computers
By Victor Berman
Issue Date:November 2007
pp. 594-595
The common engineering practice of decomposing complex problems into a series of simpler subproblems to arrive at effective solutions is mirrored in the electronics industry by the definition and use of IP blocks. Although such blocks were initially fairly...
 
Conflicting International Standards Pressure Chip Designers
Found in: IEEE Design and Test of Computers
By Victor Berman
Issue Date:January 2007
pp. 98-99
There is a growing controversy on the international stage between established communications standards from the US and the European Union (EU) and those being developed by emerging economic giants in Southeast Asia, particularly China. Find out more, in th...
 
Standards: DASC sees moves toward formality in design
Found in: IEEE Design and Test of Computers
By Victor Berman
Issue Date:September 2006
pp. 428-429
Two interesting standardization proposals, Rosetta and Esterel version 7, both are based on technology that has been under development for a long time, and both target the formalization of system-level design and verification. But, otherwise, they take ver...

Sharing standards work with Japan
Found in: IEEE Design and Test of Computers
By Victor Berman
Issue Date:March 2005
pp. 182-183
The IEEE is an international body, and its standards are likewise international in scope. However, in many areas such as EDA, the major locus of development work is in the US, and more specifically, in Silicon Valley. It is very easy to take the path of le...

The continuing evolution of EDA standards
Found in: IEEE Design and Test of Computers
By Erich Marschner, Victor Berman
Issue Date:September 2004
pp. 450-451
The role of standards in EDA has evolved through the years, and it continues to evolve as the industry matures. Understanding how the role of EDA standards has changed over time can help us see where standards will be going in the future.
