CircuitSutra Technologies has released its SystemC model library consisting of CircuitSutra Modelling Library (CSTML) and the Virtual Platform—Quick Start Package (VP-QSP). This new technology can be used in the Virtual Platform project.

"Most of Sock companies and Systems companies are starting to develop the virtual platform of their SoC or Electronics System. The virtual platform have to be available early in the cycle so that it can be used to start the embedded software development in parallel to the hardware development resulting in reducing the time to market", says Umesh Sisodia, CEO, CircuitSutra. "If a company has to develop the entire modelling infrastructure from scratch, then it will require lots of time and efforts to develop the virtual platform. The VP-QSP from CircuitSutra when used in conjunction with CSTML library can reduce the efforts on a virtual platform project up to 80 per cent."

CSTML is a library built on top of SystemC & TLM2.0, it is a collection of convenience classes and utilities that ease the model development activity. CSTML can be a very effective tool for any company starting the virtual platform development project. Using the CSTML as the base of their modelling projects right from the beginning will ensure that modelling infrastructure will be compliant with standards and can be integrated with any EDA tool. It will also be beneficial to migrate the existing modelling infrastructure to CSTML.

Virtual Platform—Quick Start Package (VP-QSP) is library of basic models and modelling infrastructure that can be used to quick start a virtual platform project. VP-QSP contains the TLM protocol and the convenient sockets for the popular chip interfaces: UART, SSP, I2C, Ethernet, Audio, USB, and more being added, these can be used to quickly develop the model of any specific controller IP complaint with these interfaces. VP-QSP also contains the models of general purpose peripherals used in ARM based SoC. Specialised VP-QSP are being developed for specific application domains such as automotive, imaging, motor control, etc.
