Accellera Approves New Portable Test and Stimulus Standard!
The Accellera Board of Directors has approved Portable Test and Stimulus 1.0 as an Accellera standard. The Portable Test and Stimulus Standard (PSS) defines a specification to create a single representation of stimulus and test scenarios usable by a variety of users across many levels of integration under different configurations. This representation facilitates the generation of diverse implementations of a scenario that run on a variety of execution platforms, including, but not necessarily limited to, simulation, emulation, FPGA prototyping, and post-silicon. With this standard, users can specify a set of behaviors once and observe consistent behavior across multiple implementations. The new standard is available immediately to download for free.
Release notes stating the differences between the Early Adopter II Release to the 1.0 standard are available. For more information, a press release and supporting industry quotes are also available. Accellera’s Portable Stimulus Community is also a resource for the latest information available on the new standard.
