5.2.1 Installing the TPIP package

This section describes how to install the Third Party IP (TPIP) package.

You need the TPIP package to use: To build an EVS from a Fast Models subsystem, you need the SystemC and TLM header files and libraries. The TPIP package contains library releases of the SystemC and TLM packages and patch files.


  • The patch files document the required changes to the SystemC and TLM packages available from the ASI website. The libraries from the TPIP packages are link compatible with the ASI download version.
  • The Fast Models SystemC examples rely on a certain directory structure for libraries and header files. This structure differs from the original ASI package because the Fast Models software supports a wider range of compilers. To use the original ASI package with the Fast Models SystemC examples, apply a set of patch files to adjust the directory names. The instructions are in the <TPIP>/Accellera/README.txt file.


  1. Download the TPIP package.
    The TPIP package is available from the same location as the Fast Models package. This package contains the SystemC and TLM header files and libraries. Alternatively, your site might have a copy.
  2. Install the TPIP package.
