Fast and Accurate Protocol Specific Bus Modeling using TLM 2.0
The need to have Transaction Level models early in the design cycle is becoming more and more important to shorten the development times of complex Systems-on-Chip (SoC). These models need to be functional and timing accurate in order to address different design use-cases during the SoC development. However the typical issue with Transaction Level Modeling (TLM) techniques is the accuracy vs. simulation speed trade-off. Models that can run at high simulation speeds are often modeled at abstraction levels that make them unsuitable for use-cases where timing accuracy is required.
