PinaVM: a SystemC Front-End Based on an Executable Intermediate Representation

Presented at Emsoft 2010

Monday 25 October 2010

SystemC is the de facto standard for modeling embedded systems. It allows system design at various levels of abstractions, provides typical object-orientation features and incorporates timing and concurrency concepts. A SystemC program is typically processed by a SystemC front-end in order to verify, debug and/or optimize the architecture. Designing a SystemC front-end is a difficult task and existing approaches suffer from limitations. In this paper, we present a new approach that addresses most of these limitations. We detail this approach, based on an executable intermediate representation. We introduce PinaVM, a new, open-source SystemC front-end and implementation of our contributions. We give experimental results on this tool.
