Pinapa: An extraction tool for systemc descriptions of systems-on-a-chip

Abstract : SystemC is becoming a de-facto standard for the description of complex systems-on-a-chip. It enables system-level descriptions of SoCs: the same language is used for the description of the architecture, software and hardware parts. A tool like pinapa is compulsory to work on realistic SoCs designs for anything else than simulation: it is able to extract both architecture and behavior information from SystemC code, with very few limitations. pinapa can be used as a front-end for various analysis tools, ranging from “superlint” to model-checking. It is open source and available from There exists no equivalent tool for SystemC up to now.
