Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the data types available to a user creating SystemC simulation models. The SystemC Language Reference Manual (LRM) IEEE Standard 1666 uses over 190 pages to specify the SystemC data types. We have attempted to be considerably briefer.

The reader will consequently need to refer to the SystemC LRM for a full definition of the SystemC data types and other resources for the C++ data types and other libraries. The SystemC library provides integer, logic, and fixed-point data types designed for modeling hardware. In addition to the SystemC data types, SystemC simulations may use native C++ data types, other library data types, and user-defined data types.
