SycView: Visualize and Profile SystemC Simulations

Abstract : The design of systems-on-chip requires simulation of highly abstracted models, such as SystemC Transaction Level Models (TLM), in addition to traditional register transfer level models. Due to the growing complexity of products, analyzing and understanding the behavior of the corresponding SystemC platforms becomes itself a challenge. Huge code bases are generally written by multiple authors and it is rare that a single person has a comprehensive detailed knowledge of the model. However, models have to be developed, validated and used, so understanding them is important. Moreover, the increasing complexity leads to slower simulations, so there is a need to speed them up. We propose a tool, SycView, which provides a view of the profile of a SystemC simulation. This tool helps answering these two major needs: understanding complex hardware simulations, and highlighting bottlenecks of SystemC simulations.
