Altogether our SystemC frontend provides a powerful visualization and debugging environment for complex system models with arbitrary number of process and signal instances.
Evaluation and Exploration views
To give the system architect the possibility of evaluation and exploration of his architecture and the application to architecture mapping, our framework provides quite a number of different simulation results to the system architect. Focussing on the most important these are:
Aggregated Communication graphs:
With the aggregated communication graphs the data transfers, e.g. the number of occurrencies or time consumption, between the different processing elements of the system design can be evaluated. Thus bottlenecks of the communication architecture can be easily found and resolved. An example is depicted in AggregatedGraph.jpg .
