TUTORIAL: Experience the Next ~Wave~ of Analog and Digital Signal Processing Using SystemC AMS 2.0

Installation instructions (prior to the event)

To conduct the exercises with SystemC AMS in the practical sessions (the “labs”), we kindly request you to install and test the system-level modeling environment prior to the event. This page explains the installation and testing procedure.

System installation requirements
The minimum requirements for the installation of the system-level modeling environment are:

  • Windows version Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 (not Vista)
  • Minimal RAM: 2GB
  • Minimal free disk space: 4GB

Note: Only Windows installations are fully supported and therefore recommended. Please contact us if you have difficulties or other installation requirements.

Download the system-level modeling environment
For this tutorial, Fraunhofer IIS/EAS offers a special evaluation version of their COSIDE® design environment, supporting system-level modeling using SystemC and SystemC AMS.
You can download the COSIDE here.

Download the exercises
The exercises (labs) used in the tutorial are available via this link.

Starting COSIDE and installing the exercises
Import the exercises in a new workspace in COSIDE (same procedure as using a workspace in Eclipse).

The video links below demonstrate how to unzip the exercises and import them into the workspace.

Note: the exercises in lab1 and lab2 contain ‘blanks’ in the form of TODO sections, and therefore do not immediately run. The 3rd exercise (vibration sensor) can be executed to test your installation.

Additional information
In order to get familiar with the SystemC AMS 2.0 standard, we recommend downloading “AMS 1.0” and “AMS 2.0” from the Accellera page here.

Please note that access to SystemC material is restricted and subject to the terms of the SystemC Open Source License, and registration is required before download.
