About SystemC CCI
The Configuration, Control and Inspection (CCI) working group is defining standards for the exchange of information between SystemC models and tools. The goal of these important standards is to improve efficiency and ROI for both model creators and tool providers. They will allow suppliers to instrument models so that a rich user experience is enabled, and they will allow industry tools to leverage this instrumentation to provide powerful debug and analysis capabilities. The WG is initially focusing on configuration for which the requirements specification has been publicly reviewed; development of a draft standard is underway. Future areas being considered are visibility (internal state, power data, performance stats, etc.) with monitor/trace controls, model-specific command/control messaging, registers, and save/restore functionality.
