December 2011 Monthly Update   
Coming Soon!

TLMCentral, an industry-wide web portal that offers a unique aggregation point for transaction-level models, is adding an open source component to its model portal capabilities. With this new feature, model developers can upload their open source SystemC TLM-2.0 based models, adding to the 800+ list of commercially available models now on the site. To kick off this new addition to the portal, TLMCentral is hosting a model contest with opportunities to win an iPad 2. Go to to learn more.

Recently Updated

The Synopsys 90nm Generic Library has recently been updated and is currently available for download. The latest updated version contains all bug fixes done since the last release (January 27, 2011) as a result of the ongoing maintenance process of EDK. The Synopsys 90nm Generic Library enables students to master advanced design methods, such as low power, using the latest Synopsys EDA tools. It includes: digital and I/O standard cell libraries, memories, a phase-locked loop, a technology kit and a couple of sample designs. The library is also compatible with the OpenSPARC T1 and IBM PowerPC 405 architectures. For more information about the library please see the 90nm Generic Library FAQ.
