Although SystemC is considered the most promising language for system-on-chip functional modeling, it doesn’t come with power modeling capabilities. This work presents PowerSC, a novel power estimation framework which instruments SystemC for power characterization, modeling and estimation. Since it is entirely based on SystemC, PowerSC allows consistent power modeling from the highest to the lowest abstraction level. Besides, the framework’s API provides facilities to integrate alternative… CONTINUE READING
