C/C++ Based System Design Flow Using SpecC, VCC and SystemC

  title={C/C++ Based System Design Flow Using SpecC, VCC and SystemC},
  author={Lukai Cai and Daniel Gajski},
This report presents a C/C++ based system design flow that uses SpecC, VCC and SystemC tools. The design starts with a pure C model that is then converted into a SpecC model. A so-called behavior exploration task then takes place to analyze and optimize the system behavior. We then perform architectural exploration using VCC. Once this is complete, the behavior model is refined to an architecture model utilizing the SpecC methodology and the SpecC refinement tool. Finally, the design is linked… CONTINUE READING
