Phil Moorby Honored at DVCon U.S.
Moorby Honored Posthumously with 2023 Technical Excellence Award
Phil Moorby, the inventor of the Verilog Hardware Description Language (HDL) who passed away in September 2022, was honored posthumously with the Accellera 2023 Technical Excellence Award during a luncheon at DVCon U.S. Mr. Moorby invented Verilog HDL in 1984 and developed the industry standard simulator Verilog-XL. His continued work to improve Verilog led to the SystemVerilog standard. He has been honored with many awards for his work, including the prestigious Phil Kaufman Award in 2005. He also received a Fellow Award from the Computer History Museum in 2016 for his invention and the promotion of Verilog HDL.

Accellera Forms Clock Domain Crossing WG
The new Clock Domain Crossing (CDC) Working group will focus on defining a standard CDC collateral specification to ease SoC integration. Currently, SoC teams cannot reuse IP-level CDC collateral in the SoC environment if both teams use different CDC verification tools, causing a time-consuming CDC verification problem. The CDC Working Group will address the current incompatibility, which will help to greatly improve productivity.
