Saving verification time using TLM modeling



RTL was introduced 15 years ago in order to cope with design complexity that could not be handled with schematic approach.

Can you still match your requirements in a reasonable time with RTL? If yes, no need to change.  Today’s electronic systems embed one or more processors (with software!), bus, cache as well as more and more algorithm mapped in hardware in order to cope with performance requirements. Validating and verifying the complete system is becoming a real challenge both in term of fonctionnality but also performance and power consumption.

ESL methodology together with TLM (transaction level) modeling raise the level of abastraction, like RTL did, in order to cope with today’s challenges

What You Will Learn

  • What is the magic behind TLM modeling (in fact there is no!) to make it faster than RTL
  • What are the different levels of TLM modeling
  • Why TLM modeling is simple
