Call to order

Ernst started the meeting at 8:04 am PST. A quorum was determined.


Agenda was approved without changes.

Administrative issues

Approval of minutes
Alain moved to approve the December 7, 2016 minutes seconded by Joachim.

Review of IEEE patent policy
Review of patent policy was skipped because all participants in the telephone conference were regulars.

The WG Secretary election is still open until January 16, 2017.

Handling on copyrighted material
Synopsys is working on it.

Action items

  • Ernst could not find any information in past minutes considering links on the twki to sites containing VHDL-AMS models .
  • Joachim informed that there is no permalink to the VHDL-AMS models of the AK30 group.
  • Ernst said that it is not required to refer to the last version of standards. He suggested to retain the references used in the IEEE Std 1076-2008.
  • Handling of consistency of references to bibliographical items has to be done.
  • For using colors instead of change bars to indicate 1076.1 content, there is yet no final solution. For the WG ballot, the colored version can be used.
  • Changes in annex E still have to be done.

Project discussion

LRM review status
The meeting slides contain further information.

Recently modified LCSs
Recently modified LCSs will be marked as approved.

Open issues

  • LRM: Review of annexes D (non-portable constructs), E (changes), J (bibliography), and K (index) is still open. Decision on using colors instead of change bars is necessary.
  • Acknowledgment: Ernst will check what to do that the LRM text matches the text requested.
  • Packages: 1076.1.1 packages must refer to the updated standard and be in accordance with LCS 201x-17. The acknowledgment text requested by the copyright holders has to be added to the 1076 packages. The copyright letter from Synopsys is required no later than March.
Project planning
The meeting slides contain further information. The balloting process is defined by the IEEE Standards association. IEEE-SA membership allows to ballot. In order to provide the new standard version for the IEEE-SA Standards Review Committee ( RevCom) meeting in September, it must be submitted until July 28.
