Knowledge Center

Knowledge Center ➜ Entity
Responsible for the standardization of Design Automation related standards in the IEEE.


The Design Automation Standards Committee (DASC) is a subgroup of interested individuals members of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Computer Society and Standards Association. It oversees IEEE Standards that are related to computer-aided design (known as design automation).

These standards are fully incorporated into the Knowledge Center:

1076 VHDL Language Reference Manual (VASG)
1076.1 Standard VHDL Analog and Mixed-Signal Extensions (VHDL-AMS)
1076.1.1 Standard VHDL Analog and Mixed-Signal Extensions - Packages for Multiple Energy Domain Support (StdPkgs)
1076.4 VITAL ASIC Modeling Specification
1364 Standard for Verilog Hardware Description Language (Now part of 1800)
1364.1 Standard for Verilog Register Transfer Level Synthesis
1647 e
1666 SystemC
1685 IP-XACT
1800 SystemVerilog: Unified Hardware Design, Specification and Verification Language [cosponsored with IEEE-SA CAG]
1801 UPF
1850 Property Specification Language

Working Groups
P2415 Standard for Unified Hardware Abstraction and Layer for Energy Proportional Electronic Systems
