To cope with the complexity of the development of modern systems-on-chip, the industry utilizes abstractions such as transaction-level models. These models are generally written with the help of SystemC.

In this course, the students will learn the principles of transaction-level modeling in SystemC. The various abstraction levels at which a model may be written and the different ways to integrate embedded software in the models will also be discussed.
