UMoC++: A C++-Based Multi-MoC Modeling Environment
2006 (English)In: Advances in Design and Specification Languages for SoCs: Selected Contributions from FDL’05 / [ed] A. Vachoux, Springer Publishing Company, 2006, 115-130 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
System-on-chip (SoC) and other complex distributed hardware/software systemscontain heterogeneous components that necessitate frameworks capable of expressingheterogeneous models of computation (MoCs) for modeling their functionalities.System-level design languages (SLDLs) that facilitate multi-MoCmodeling should have well-defined semantics and should be readily subjectedto formal analysis to handle the design complexity. As a result, we follow themulti-MoC paradigm based on timing abstraction and functional parameterizationsthat have rigorous denotational semantics, which are compliant to functionalidioms as shown in functional frameworks such as ForSyDe and SML-Sys.However, functional frameworks are not widely used in the industry due toissues related to efficiency and interoperability with other widely used SLDLs.This imposes a requirement for an imperative language-based implementationof these generic MoCs that offers all the advantages of the underlying formalsemantics. In this chapter, we formulate the basis for having generic MoCs in animperative language and describe the implementation of an untimed modelingframework called UMoC++.
