Carbon Design Systems Inc. has released a solution for AMBA TLM-2.0 modeling that enables virtual mode reuse in any SystemC environment.
The software solution, available from Carbon’s IP Exchange at no charge, contains definitions and extensions for AMBA 3 AX13, AHB, AHB-Lite and APB protocols at the loosely timed, approximately timed and cycle-timed levels of abstraction. Adapters are provided to bridge between abstraction levels and to connect directly to the AMBA Programmer’s View (PV) interface used by ARM’s Fast Models.
The TLM-2.0 for the AMBA protocol solution will execute in any SystemC environment. It contains no runtime licensing.
Designers can use the source, examples and documentation provided in the kit to create models representing AMBA IP blocks at any level of abstraction.
To ensure compatibility with ARM’s Fast Models, Carbon has teamed with ARM to include the PV definitions for AMBA used by the Fast Models’ TLM-2.0 interface as part of the kit.
The TLM-2.0 for the AMBA protocol solution is available for immediate download from Carbon’s IP Exchange www.carbonipexchange.com.
