The validation of transaction level models described in System-level Description Languages (SLDLs) often relies on extensive simulation. However, traditional Discrete Event (DE) simulation of SLDLs is cooperative and cannot utilize the available parallelism in modern multi-core CPU hosts. In this work, we study the SLDL execution semantics of concurrent… CONTINUE READING
