Hi

CoCentric System Studio (CCSS) includes a release of SystemC.
Modelsim comes with a GCC supports SystemC.

Does someone have suggestions on using whichever of them?



tnx

systemc-2.0.1.exe

Use modelsim.
It is easy to comiple various design languages together.

If you only use systemC, you can use gcc + gdb, and dump VCD.
And then, use waveform viewer(debussy) to see the VCD waveform.

incisive debussy waveform dump

From within the synopsys DC environment
you can compile your systemc file with the following command

compile_systemc my_design.cpp

The output is in .db format. If you need the output in Verilog or VHDL format you enter the command

compile_systemc -format {db, verilog, vhdl} my_design.cpp

you get the files my_design.v and my_design.vhd with the verilog and vhdl equivalent description.

Afterthat, you can proceed to compile
You don't have to do analyze and elaborate

Furthermore, Cadence is also the member of OSI. And Cadence expaned the standard systemc in its Incisive platform.

systemc debussy

Cadence has a very good support for systemc. These people also have CVE cadence verification extentions. These are similar like SCV

compilar systemc gcc

Cocentric System Studio is much more complicated thhan ModelSim .. ModelSim just gives you what u want exactly to the point .. for example, u can simply add a file to an existing project in modelsim , while in Cocentric most of the time u will need to creat a new model for the file u need to add ..

Effectively I do use both ModelSim and Cocentric, but I'm forced to use Cocentric and not very flexible dealing with it .. Maybe because am a ModelSim fan ..

To be honest, Cecentric gives u some more facilities like plotting the output of ur blocks .. similar to matlab .. for this , it can more suitable for system level design and verification .. while for modelsim, most of the people use it for RTL ..

systemc & ncsc

Model sim 6.0 windows do support system C, And the versions from 5.7 modelsim LE, supports system c.
How about learning System C Using the ALDEC tool which is free (only for learning)

SystemC

Concentric SystemC is for algorithm, system and architecture design. ModelSim system is more for verification.
