Abstract: Refinement is a key methodology for SoC design. The proposed IPSIM design environment, based on a C++ modeling library developed on top of SystemC 3.0, supports an object-oriented design methodology, separates IP modules into behavior and communication components and further establishes two inter-module communication layers. The Message Box layer includes generic and system-specific communication, while the driver layer implements higher level user-defined communications as illustrated in a design example.
