ECSI, VSIA and MEDEA — How International Organisations Support Reusability
In the challenging field of designing Systems-on-a-Chip three international organisations support their customers by different activities: ECSI has broadened its activities, e.g. to the virtual component domain, and intensified, e.g. in the language domain, and has become a member of VSIA and its European representative. VSIA, founded in 1996, has installed 7 Development Working Groups for the development of interface standards and to support the reusability of virtual components. MEDEA supports the European institutes and industry in related projects by forcing horizontal co-operation between European system companies and IC manufacturers.
