Advancing the SystemC Ecosystem
For more than a decade, SystemC has been used by system architects and design engineers. Not only since the inclusion of Transaction Level Modeling (TLM) into the IEEE 1666-2011 SystemC standard, SystemC is the language of choice for virtual prototyping across the industry. In order to meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s electronic systems, advanced system-level design methodologies and the evolution of SystemC-related standards are required. This tutorial gives an overview on the latest advancements to the SystemC ecosystem in the Accellera working groups including an introduction to SystemC 2.3.2. Two additional technical presentations give more in-depth insights on custom protocol modeling at transaction level as well as state-of-the art high-level synthesis.
