The basic design flow for Fast Models is:
Create or buy standard component models.
Use System Canvas to connect components and set parameters in the LISA+ source code.
Generate a new model using System Generator either from the command
SimGen) or from within the System Canvas GUI.
Use the new model as input to a more complex system or distribute it as a standalone simulation environment.
The input to System Generator consists of:
Typically these are models of processors or standard peripherals.
The source code files define custom peripheral components. They can be existing files in the Fast Models portfolio or new LISA+ files that were created in System Canvas. The LISA+ descriptions can be located in any directory. One LISA+ file can contain one or more component descriptions.
After the required components have been added and connected, System Generator uses gcc or the Visual Studio C++ compiler to produce the output object as one of the following:
SYSTEMC_HOMEenvironment variable must be set.
