ESL: Electronic System Level Modelling

Recall the following levels of modelling from the start of this course:

An ESL methodology aims:

Aim 1: To model with good performance the a SoC using full software/firmware.

Aim 2: To allow seamless and successive replacement of high-level parts of the model with low-level models/implementations when available and when interested in their detail.

So, an ESL methodology must provide:

Chosen baseline methodolody: SystemC Transactional Modelling using high-level models in C++.
