SystemC – Modeling platform and Design language

Most of you (CS students, engineers, geeks, etc etc) might already know about SystemC, but for folks who haven’t heard about it or does not know what it is actually, here are some details, btw I assume you know what C & C++ is all about.

SystemC provides hardware-oriented constructs within the context of C++ as a class library implemented in standard C++. Its use spans design and verification from concept to implementation in hardware and software.

SystemC provides an interoperable modeling platform which enables the development and exchange of very fast system-level C++ models. It also provides a stable platform for development of system-level tools.

The Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI) is an independent not-for-profit organization composed of a broad range of companies, universities and individuals dedicated to supporting and advancing SystemC as an open source standard for system-level design.

Check the complete detail on SystemC and an article on need for SystemC.
