Abstract

In this paper, we present a framework for transforming the design model into SystemC code. Such a framework uses as input UML state machine and object diagrams, which are more and more used as design models in embedded systems. To do this, we have firstly used Poseidon tool for editing the design model and generating the XMI representation, and secondly integrated a transformation module leading to SystemC code. The mapping to SystemC code offers not only a system-level executable specification, but also a means to facilitating the system partitioning in hardware and software parts.
