Abstract: The concept of a SOC platform architecture introduces the concept of a communication infrastructure. In the transaction-level a finite set of architecture components (memories, arithmetic units, address generators, caches, etc) communicate among each other over shared resources (buses). Until recently, modeling architectures required pin-level hardware descriptions, typically coded in RTL. Great effort is required to design and verify the models, and simulation at this level of detail is tediously slow. Tr…
