SystemC Code Generation from UML for Wireless Sensor Networks Design
Due to increasing complexity in embedded systems, it became necessary to develop new design methodologies that will address the design from a high level of abstraction. In this paper, the authors' study suggests an approach for modeling Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) from system specification using the Unified Modeling Language (UML), describing both structure and functionality. Process for automatic code generation from UML models to System C executable models has been presented. It was found that transformation process will provide the exploration and system functional verification before being implemented.
