Technical Video Tutorial

TLM-2.0 in Action

An Example-based Approach to Transaction-level Modeling and the New World of Model Interoperability

Available Now

I would like to invite you to a complimentary online tutorial exploring the concepts and mechanics of the OSCI transaction-level modeling standard, TLM-2.0. Brought to you by the Open SystemC Initiative, the tutorial was presented as part of the technical program at the 2009 Design and Verification Conference (DVCon). The video provides a wealth of useful information for both experienced and new SystemC designers.

The tutorial dives into the fine points of the TLM-2.0 standard that emerged during the development of the Language Reference Manual slated for release in the coming months. Its examples-based approach provides in-depth details of TLM-2.0 and how to get the most value out of using the standard. Examples demonstrate modeling styles as well as integration of legacy models based on TLM-1 interfaces, which are fully preserved in TLM-2.0.
