Welcome to the SystemC AMS standardization (P1666.1) page


The IEEE P1666.1 Working Group has been created under the auspices of the IEEE Design Automation Standards Committee (DASC) with the charter to standardize the Analog/Mixed-Signal (AMS) extensions for SystemC as an ANSI standard C++ class library for system and hardware design including analog/mixed-signal elements.
P1666.1 is an entity-based Working Group.


The general purpose of the SystemC AMS extensions is to provide a C++ standard for designers and architects, who need to address complex heterogeneous systems that are a hybrid between hardware and software. This standard is built on the IEEE Std. 1666-2011 (SystemC Language Reference Manual) and extends it to create analog/mixed-signal, multi-disciplinary models to simulate continuous-time, discrete-time, and discrete-event behavior simultaneously.
The specific purpose of this standard is to provide a precise and complete definition of the AMS class library, so that a SystemC AMS implementation can be developed with reference to this standard alone. This standard is neither intended to serve as a user's guide nor to provide an introduction to AMS extensions in SystemC, but does contain useful information for end users.
