This SoC Designer Tools interface includes the following:
- The SoC Designer Simulation API (MxSimAPI).
- The SoC Designer Plugins interface.
- The SoC Designer LCD/mouse/keyboard OS-integration interface.
New users must familiarize themselves with the SoC Designer tools. The SoC Designer User Guide (100996) and the SoC Designer Tutorial are recommended.
This guide contains advanced interfaces that are intended for users already familiar with SoC Designer.
SoC Designer is a SystemC simulation environment for easy modeling and fast simulation of integrated systems-on-chip with multiple cores, peripherals, and memories.
The cycle-optimized scheduler and the transaction-based component interfaces enable high simulation speed while retaining sufficient accuracy.
SoC Designer systems can be used as standalone simulation models or integrated into HW simulation or HW/SW co-simulation tools.
Third-party debuggers attach easily to one or more targets within SoC Designer for source level debugging and SW development.
