A new system-level approach is needed to incorporate reconfigurability in IP-integration design flow, in order to speed up the designer's productivity. SystemC is used as a system level language to raise the abstraction level for embedded systems design and verification. To incorporate reconfiguration aspects of IPs, a multiple-context representation of the different functionalities is used that will be mapped on the re-configurable block during different runtime periods. Co-simulation scenario is proposed as a part of a System-on-Chip (SoC) design and modeling.
