ECSI is a European non-profit association, established in 1993 by large industrial developers of electronic systems, manufacturers of integrated circuits in Europe and major EDA companies. ECSI operates via collaborative research and development projects that address specific issues in the system design domain. Current projects include CONTREX, CRAFTERS, OpenES, and PaPP.

ECSI organizes yearly conferences: FDL, DASIP, ESLsyn, and SMD, as well as focused workshops devoted to provide a complete overview of advanced topics, emerging methods, and standards in system design. ECSI is also a proud DATE sponsor.

An important activity of ECSI is related to standardization in the domain of system design. ECSI established relations with the most important international standardization bodies to facilitate the access to information, support the standardization process and adoption of standards: IEEE/DASC, OCP, Si2, Accellera, OMG.

ECSI offers several membership options, whether a company or an individual, to help give you an influence on system design methods and standards. ECSI members are the backbone of our association and we will work closely with you to accommodate your needs and ideas. Please office [at] ecsi [dot] org (contact us) for more information.
