As i know, there are primitive channel and hierachical channel in systemC.
But i'm not sure about should i know both of things?
If you can, could you please let me know what thing is used for normally in company.
Also second question is that can be possible use sc_signal and sc_fifo and sc_buffer in one module?
If yes, what am i caution for using that in one module?
I was wondering if I could run in parallel a number of processes from different modules using multi-threading in SystemC. Take into account that these processes make use of SystemC elements like signal.read etc, from the SystemC library . That means SystemC library should be multi-threading safe. The reason why i want to use multi-threading is to decrease the simulation time, i.e. increase the performance of the simulation.
I found this link: http://www.accellera.org/activities/committees/systemc-language/
that states about recent activities on SystemC 2.3.0: " In addition, an improved simulation API and a new thread safety mechanism will allow much better interaction with external tools and support for multi-threading."
Does it mean, I can parallelize the execution of processes? and if yes how can I do it?
