Initiatives

Industry memberships and standards setting bodies not only facilitate industry-wide communication but plant the seeds for future development and growth by providing open platforms for discussion.  As a result, Globetech Solutions is a member or supports the activities of the following industry organizations and standards setting bodies:

Industry Memberships

PFI Power Forward Initiative (PFI)
Drawing from the collective expertise of leading technology companies, the Power Forward Initiative will create a more systematic, integrated approach to low-power design, providing a platform for higher-level exploration and IP reuse.
 IP-XACT
SPIRIT Consortium
The SPIRIT Consortium stands for "Structure for Packaging, Integrating and Re-using IP within Tool flows". The Semiconductor industry needs a standard mechanism for describing semiconductor intellectual property (IP) in such a manner that IP integration can be automated through the use of plug-in tools. The SPIRIT Consortium is addressing this with specifications in two areas: IP meta-data description standard, and an IP tool plug-in API.
 Consumer Electronics ATA

The Consumer Electronics ATA (CE-ATA) Consortium
The CE-ATA is an industry initiative created in order to define a storage interface tailored to the specific needs of handheld consumer applications and portable electronic devices.

 

Standards & Languages

The Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers
Standards
Association

The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA)
The IEEE SA is the leading developer of global industry standards covering a broad-range of industries ranging from computer engineering, biomedical technology and telecommunications to electric power, aerospace and consumer electronics, among others.

The Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers
Design Automation Standards Committee

The IEEE Design Automation Standards Committee (IEEE DASC)
The goal of the IEEE DASC is to develop standards for the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry which will provide continued benefits to the designers and users of tools in this industry.

The IEEE P1647 Working Group
The e Functional Verification Language Working Group

The IEEE P1647 (VLAG) Working Group
The purpose of this project, per the Project Authorization Request (PAR) is:

“This standard will serve the community involved with functional verification of electronic designs using the e language.  It will provide an implementation independent definition of the e language and facilitate the development of e based design automation tools.”

Several key features of this verification language include:

  • Constrained-random generation using declarative constraints
  • Complete protocol/assertion language
  • Functional coverage specifications
  • Constructs for concurrency (multi-threaded execution) and HDL access
  • Built-in utilities for lists, strings and files manipulation
  • General purpose programming language constructs, similar to those in C/C++
