BEVERTON, Ore.-- April 3, 2012 --Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP) today announced the availability of version 2_2x2_2 of the OCP Modeling Kit. The new version boasts greater robustness of data in payload-event-queues, a modification of thread-busy signaling API, added support for interrupts, sideband error signaling, sideband user flags, added TLM2-native adapters between TL3 and TL1, and added TLM2-native adapters between TL1 and RTL signals (TL0).
The work by OCP-IP’s System Level Design Working Group ensures continued alignment with the Accellera Systems Initiative SystemC TLM-2 standard and is the most advanced TLM-2 based, industry-ready kit in existence today. The Kit is free as part of OCP-IP membership entitlement and saves users hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in development, documentation, and training costs by enabling them to model their bus fabric to leverage this OCP-IP SLD modeling kit.
The new revision continues to support and leverage Accellera Systems Initiative SystemC TLM-2 for all levels of abstraction and includes TL4 which is equivalent to Accellera’s "loosely-timed” (LT) level. TL1 is fully cycle-accurate, including support for clock cycle synchronization and combinatorial paths. TL2 handles intra-burst timing. TL3 and TL4: inter-burst or no timing, equivalent to Accellera’s Base Protocol.
The Kit includes everything needed for immediate use. For a detailed listing of everything included see http://www.ocpip.org/uploads/documents/OCP_TLM_Datasheet.new.pdf.
A fully functional version of the Kit without monitors is also available to non-members, via click through research license agreement from www.ocpip.org.
This Kit was developed by OCP-IP member companies working with Greensocs, Ltd. It interoperates seamlessly with other TLM utilities, such as GreenSocket from GreenSocs.
