Virtual Prototypes (VPs) based on Transaction Level Modeling (TLM) have become a de-facto standard in today's SoC design, enabling early SW development. However, due to the growing complexity of SoC architectures full system simulations (HW+SW) become a bottleneck reducing this benefit. Hence, it is necessary to develop modeling styles which allow for further abstraction beyond the currently applied TLM methodology. This paper introduces such a modeling style, referred to as TLM+. It enables a higher modeling abstraction through merging hardware dependent driver software at the lowest level with the HW interface.
