SystemC Modeling

  • SystemC is high level design modeling language targeted towards reducing implementation time considerably compared to Verilog & VHDL based implementations. SystemC uses set of inbuilt C++ classes and macros to make the implementation trivial and reusable.
    SystemC is a set of C++ classes and macros which provide an event-driven simulation interface . These facilities enable a designer to simulate concurrent processes, each described using plain C++ syntax. SystemC processes can communicate in a simulated real-time environment, using signals of all the datatypes offered by C++, some additional ones offered by the SystemC library, as well as user defined. In certain respects, SystemC deliberately mimics the hardware description languages VHDL and Verilog, but is more aptly described as a system-level modeling language. SystemC is applied to system-level modeling, architectural exploration, performance modeling, software development, functional verification, and high-level synthesis. SystemC is often associated with electronic system-level (ESL) design, and with transaction-level modeling (TLM)

    VT-SV course also includes multiple weeks of Lab sessions to enable student put effort in doing above projects from scratch.
