ESL TLM in SystemC: First Standard 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: how to have multiple TLM ports on a component with the same interface type: e.g. a packet router.

Problem: no standardised structure for ports and payloads.

Problem: no standardised timing annotation mechanism.

NB: Full exam credit can be gained using any of TLM1.0 or TLM2.0 styles or your own pseudo code sketches in an OO language of your choice.
