    SystemC TLM-2.0 Virtual Platform Direct Memory Interface (DMI) Performance Impact
    Published. June 29, 2012

    One of the most interesting concepts in SystemC TLM-2.0 is the concept of Direct Memory Interface (DMI). I remember when Mentor Graphics introduced Seamless back in the mid-1990's. Many users were impressed with how fast it could run embedded software. Of course, things have changed a lot in the last fifteen years, but many of the principles of simulation performance are still the same as what I wrote in my now ancient book published in 2004. The biggest impact has been the advancement in processor...

    When you first start using dbGet, many of your queries branch off the "top" keyword and then traverse to "insts" or "nets". These searches return a list of all the instances or nets in the design. But sometimes it's necessary to query the available cell masters -- some of which may or may not be instantiated.Common reasons for needing this are for finding things like well taps, end caps, antenna diodes and filler cells.
