IEEE - 1850

Property Specification Language (PSL)

active, Most Current
Organization: IEEE
Publication Date: 25 March 2010
Status: active
Page Count: 188
scope:

This standard defines the property specification language (PSL), which formally describes electronic system behavior. This standard specifies the syntax and semantics for PSL and also clarifies how PSL interfaces with various standard electronic system design languages.

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to provide a well-defined language for formal specification of electronic system behavior, one that is compatible with multiple electronic system design languages, including IEEE Std 1076™ (VHDL®),1 IEEE Std 1364™ (Verilog®), IEEE Std 1800™ (SystemVerilog®), and IEEE Std 1666™ (SystemC®), to facilitate a common specification and verification flow for multi-language and mixed-language designs.

This standard creates an updated IEEE standard based upon IEEE Std 1850-2005. The updated standard will refine IEEE standard, addressing errata, minor technical issues, and proposed extensions specifically related to property reuse and improved simulation usability.
