The mission of Accellera Systems Initiative is to deliver standards that lower the cost of designing commercial IC and EDA products and embedded system solutions, as well as increase the productivity of designers worldwide. The Technical Committee is where this mission is realized, and through its dedicated work, EDA and IP standard are developed that enable and promote technology innovation.
The Board of Directors of Accellera Systems Initiative established the Technical Committee (TC) to develop, update and extend hardware design language (HDL) and intellectual property (IP) standards. The TC is comprised of working groups that focus on the various standards under development, and report to the TC Chair. In addition, Accellera supports activities of certain IEEE working groups and cooperates with other standards groups within the EDA industry.
Membership at the Corporate or Associate level is required to join a Working Group or have a vote on specifications and standards. Learn more about the different levels of membership.
