Accellera Systems Initiative has set up a public repository for the source code and other supplemental material needed for its standards.
“We have seen a great deal of interest from developers that would like access to our open source reference implementations directly from a code repository so that they can create their own fork for easy adaptation to their specific projects,” said Martin Barnasconi, Accellera technical committee chair. “The public repository will provide a more direct interaction with the community and offers a platform to quickly resolve issues or bugs found. We envision other Accellera working groups to follow with additional open source implementations.”
The Accellera public repository will, like many other open-source efforts, be hosted at GitHub. The first code package to be held there is the SystemC reference implementation, made available to developers to clone or fork for their specific uses. The public repository will contain the latest bug fixes.
In addition to the new public repository, the Accellera private repository remains available for Accellera member companies. This contains the latest enhancements and new features. Accellera will continue to release its supplemental material via the Accellera download pages and will update the public repositories at these release dates.
