Abstract: The system-on-chip design cost is not only dependent on implementation and manufacturing techniques, but also on the used methodologies and design tools. In recent years, transaction level modelling (TLM) and more specifically the SystemC TLM-2 library has become the standard in writing a system-level specification. Even though TLM-2 based models are more abstract than registry-level ones, they are very challenging to develop. They are often written manually and from scratch. In this paper, we expose a more elaborate and modular structure of transaction level models based on more predictable semantics. This work will be our first stone of the building of a model-driven design, a methodology that has proven itself in software engineering.
