Aspects of Object-Oriented Hardware Modelling with SystemC-Plus

Grimpe, Eike and Oppenheimer, Frank
In this paper we present an approach,how hardware an be modelled object-oriented 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 obje t-oriented techniques and onstructs for modelling hardware,which an 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.
