ABout the Book
“.... a primer that gradually introduces the reader to the complexities of SystemC by reference to common digital design concepts ...”
“Well suited as a text book for sudents and great value for hardware designers that want to get started with SystemC”
Bernhard Niemann, Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits
“This is definitely a reference for designers who want to learn SystemC at RTL level. Numerous examples guide the reader towards a sound understanding of the language. Higher level SystemC features are introduced and not kept aside. Bottom line, a very good introductory book to systemC ...”
Yves Vanderperren, Alcatel Microelectronics
“Provides an excellent introduction to SystemC ... SystemC concepts are clearly explained and illustrated with practical examples. It is a must read for people interested in modeling hardware in SystemC”.
Abhijit Ghosh, Synopsys
“Very useful book for those interested in SystemC for hardware design ... has many practical examples and gives pragmatic advice on what is possible with RTL synthesis”.
Grant Martin, Fellow, Cadence Labs
“I enjoyed reading it. Recommended to designers learning SystemC for modeling and synthesis.. it will also be welcomed on both graduate and advanced undergraduate courses”.
David Long, Doulos
