Press Release Summary:
IEEE P1699(TM), "Standard for the Rosetta Systems Level Design Language", will specify Rosetta syntax and semantics, as well as libraries for AST definition and reflection, and base modeling domains for all implementations. Rosetta language provides a system-level approach for developing, composing, and analyzing specification models from multiple design domains, each with their own vocabulary and semantics.
Original Press Release:
IEEE Starts New Standard for Rosetta System Design Language
PISCATAWAY, N.J., USA, 17 April 2007 The IEEE has begun work on a new standard to define the Rosetta language, a specification language used to integrate design information in complex electronic systems. The standard, IEEE P1699(TM), "Standard for the Rosetta Systems Level Design Language", will specify Rosetta syntax and semantics, as well as libraries for AST definition and reflection, and base modeling domains for all implementations. The Rosetta language provides a system-level approach for developing, composing and analyzing specification models from multiple design domains, each with their own vocabulary and semantics. Other design languages typically allow requirements to be specified for just one or two predefined domains.
IEEE P1699 will seek to foster wider adoption of the Rosetta language by electronic system architects and engineers, EDA tool vendors, design engineers, and others in industry and academia. It will allow architects to assess design trade-offs at the system level, mix specifications from multiple domains, and predict emergent interactions among subsystems. It also will let system engineers define design constraints as first-class models and support tool venders in providing analyses and integrating analysis results.
This standard was sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society.
About the IEEE Standards Association
The IEEE Standards Association, a globally recognized standards-setting body, develops consensus standards through an open process that brings diverse parts of an industry together. These standards set specifications and procedures based on current scientific consensus. The IEEE-SA has a portfolio of over 900 completed standards and more than 400 standards in development. For information on IEEE-SA see: standards.ieee.org/.
About the IEEE
The IEEE has more than 375,000 members in approximately 150 countries. Through its members, the organization is a leading authority on areas ranging from aerospace, computers and telecommunications to biomedicine, electric power and consumer electronics. The IEEE produces nearly 30 percent of the world's literature in the electrical and electronics engineering, computing and control technology fields. This nonprofit organization also sponsors or cosponsors more than 300 technical conferences each year. Additional information about the IEEE can be found at www.ieee.org.
