In this paper we present an approach, how hardware can be modelled object oriented by using SystemC-Plus. SystemC-Plus is based on SystemC and includes an additional C++ class library and an extended design methodology. It allows to use object-oriented techniques and constructs for modelling hardware, which can then be automatically synthesized by a special synthesis tool that is actually under development for this purpose. For a deeper understanding of the presented work the reader should have basic understanding of C++ and SystemC.
