EET.com reports that C Level
Design Inc. is ceasing operations and selling its technology assets to
Synopsys Inc., and C Level's CycleC simulation methodology will be integrated
into Synopsys' VCS Verilog simulator. However,
C Level Design had planned to donate CycleC to
both the Open SystemC Initiative and the Accellera standards body, but these donations never happened, and now it's unclear whether CycleC will ever become part of the Open Source SystemC effort.
