Cut Your Design Time in Half with Higher Abstraction

Cut Your Design Time in Half with Higher Abstraction

Presented at DVCon U.S. on February 29, 2016

This tutorial explains how to use SystemC to write synthesizable models at a higher level of abstraction than RTL. It provides real code examples comparing algorithms written at RTL and those written using the synthesizable subset, explaining the reasons behind the coding choices and the downstream implications for RTL and gates.

Experts in the Accellera standardization give a technical update on the recent standardization activities in the various working groups: Universal Verification Methodology, Portable Stimulus, IP-XACT, and SystemC.

System-Level Modeling for Today and Tomorrow with SystemC

Presented at DVCon Europe 2015 on November 11, 2015

This presentation starts with an update and overview about recent standardization activities from the different SystemC-related Accellera and IEEE Working Groups, giving a condensed overview about status and plans around SystemC.

The presentation continues with "What is Needed Beyond SystemC and TLM-2.0 for Bigger Systems?" TLM-2.0 is a well-defined abstraction level to model on-chip buses and components that are connected to these buses and interconnects. To enable proliferation of VPs that support as many as possible use cases these off-chip interfaces have to be standardized to enable fast & cheap platform assembly. This presentation addresses the (automotive) use cases and requirements of systems using these off-chip interfaces. Specific scenarios are presented that are used to assess implementation alternatives of such a standard. Finally, some possible solutions for modeling off-chip buses are presented.
