SystemC addresses the need for a system design and verification language that spans hardware and software. It is a language built in standard C++ by extending the language with a set of class libraries created for design and verification. Users worldwide are applying SystemC to system-level modeling, abstract analog/mixed-signal modeling, architectural exploration, performance modeling, software development, functional verification, and high-level synthesis.

  • Addresses system design and verification requirementss
  • Adopted widely for system-level modeling, design and verification
  • Defined by Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI) and ratified as IEEE Std. 1666™-2011
