TLM in SystemC: TLM 1.0

Transactional-level modelling (TLM) 1.0 standard used conventional C++ concepts of multiple inheritance.

An SC_MODULE that implements an interface just inherits it.

The sc_port and sc_export constructs are used to wire TLM ports together.

Problem: no standardised structure for payloads.

Problem: no standardised timing annotation mechanism.

Problem: how to have multiple TLM ports on a component with same interface: e.g. a packet router.
