Thesis type THEORY AND PROJECT
Description Modeling of embedded systems design includes various abstraction levels and corresponding methods for synthesis and verification. The manual translation of specifications into a formal implementation is a time-consuming and error-prone process.
To automate the generation of a test environment for SystemC components, a structured methodology must be implemented: it involves the definition and adoption of a test specification format that can be parsed by an algorithm able to generate the actual SystemC code.
Starting from a implementation of a Finite State Machine (FSM) written in SystemC, and given a final state to be reached, the goal of the thesis is to define and prototype a methodology and an automatic tool to verify if the FSM can reach the state, e.g. a "fault" one, or one where a given output is generated, by generating a SystemC-based stimulus that can lead to the desired state.
Required skills SystemC modeling
