The introduction of Transaction Level Modeling (TLM) allows a system designer to model a complete application, composed of hardware and software parts, at several levels of abstraction. The simulation speed of TLM is orders of magnitude faster than traditional RTL simulation; nevertheless, it can become a limiting factor when considering a Multi-Processor System-On-Chip (MP-SoC), as the analysis of these systems can be very complex. The main goal of this paper is to introduce a novel way of exploiting TLM features to increase simulation efficiency of complex systems by switching TLM models at runtime.
