Phone Conference P1450.3 Working Group
Friday, Feb 28, 2003, 1:15 to 2:00pm PST
Tony Taylor (chair & scribe)
We are in the process of reconciling the issues from the recent "on-official review" in these bi-weekly meetings. Reviewers are invited to participate (and would, no doubt add value to the discussion) as we go over the issues. The schedule for reviewing is identified in the list above. A new Draft-D07 will be created as the issues are addressed. A ResolutionDoc-D07 captures the key issues and decisions.
1/17 - Dan Fan / NP Test (reviewer comments incorporated)
1/31 - Dave Gallagher / Mentor (reviewer comments incorporated)
2/14 - Gregg Wilder / TI
2/28 - Bruce Kaufman / Teseda
3/14 - Don Organ / Inovus
DCResourceCharacteristics - This is a new clause to the standard. Gregg Wilder (the chair of the 1450.2 working group that produced the spec for DC Resources) has provided the initial cut at the syntax and definitions. Tony will make this document available before the next meeting. We will start the review of this document on 3/28 (after we complete all the reviewer feedback discussions).
BK - Review issues - The comments from Bruce Kaufman were reviewed. Most of the comments were either typographical or editorial and will be incorporated into Draft D07. Topics that were discussed in some detail:
MaxVectorMemory - Bruce questioned how to support a tester that can trade off vector memory for capture memory. We discussed the "fluid concepts" as defined in clause 20. There are two ways of supporting this need - 1) define the attribute relationships using variables; or 2) define multiple TRC files that represent typical usage configurations. We also discussed that if the relationships get too complex, then tools will probably not support it. Final decision was that the standard can support this capability. No changes will be made.
Spec block - The use of the Spec block (as defined in STIL0) also allows supporting multiple configurations. It is a way of defining the fluid relationships as discussed above. The working group again thought that using this technique would probably not be supported by tools as readily as just creating multiple TRC files. No changes are to be made to the standard.
