SystemC Evolution Fika
September 12 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC+2
The SystemC Evolution Fika is a series of online workshops to discuss the latest SystemC developments and applications. We refer to these workshops as fikas, to honor the fika tradition of sharing a coffee, slowing down a bit, and talking about things that we care about.
Date: 12 September 2023
Time: 16:00 – 18:00 CEST
Location: Online, Virtual Workshop.
Registration is free of charge. Register here.
NOTE: After registration you will receive an email including meeting details to attend the online event.

SystemC IEEE 1666 update
Presenter: Jérôme Cornet, STMicroelectronics, IEEE P1666 Chair
The next revision of IEEE 1666 SystemC is coming! It builds on enhancements and features contributed by the SystemC community during the last decade through the Accellera SystemC Language Working Group. This session will present some of the features of the upcoming revision, which modernize the language and enable new use cases.
Tracing in SystemC
Presenters: Lukas Jünger, MachineWare GmbH, Eyck Jentzsch, MINRES Technologies
The proper capture, storage, and visualization of simulation data, encompassing simulation results, traces, and meta-information, represent essential requirements for nearly all SystemC users. However, the absence of a vendor-independent, open standard has thus far impeded the seamless integration of SystemC models into complex virtual platforms, as it prevents a unified solution especially for simulation result analysis. This presentation proposes a solution to address this challenge. By establishing a standardized approach to capture and store simulation data, we aim to enable unified visualization and analysis. This advancement will unite the capabilities of diverse SystemC models within a coherent framework, fostering a more streamlined and efficient simulation experience for all users.
SystemC Data Types
Presenter: Andy Goodrich, Accellera Allied Member
A rewrite of the SystemC arbitrary-width integer support has been done to improve performance. The new version uses twos-complement representation rather than sign-magnitude, and contains a new storage scheme for values. This presentation describes the changes made, and provides some benchmark results.
