Synopsys Inc. and the Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP), an association that provides a common, open source standard for IP core interfaces, has announced the development of a SystemC modeling methodology for OCP-based SoCs.

OCP-IP founding members Nokia, Texas Instruments, Sonics, and Synopsys are publishing an application programming interface (API) specification and example models to enable OCP users to utilize best-in-class SystemC design and verification methodologies. With that, designers of complex SoCs are able to create SystemC models for OCP-compliant components, enabling a seamless design flow from high-level system specification to OCP-based SoC implementation.

"Users of OCP, such as Texas Instruments and Nokia, now have clear guidelines on how to design OCP-based systems using SystemC," said Joachim Kunkel, VP of marketing for IP and System Level Design at Synopsys. "This API and the SystemC examples give these companies the methodology to manage design complexity of OCP-based SoCs at higher levels of design abstraction."
