C++ Implementation of Functional Coverage for SystemC

We release Functional Coverage for SystemC (FC4SC) library which provides mechanisms for functional coverage definition, collection and reporting. FC4SC is a header-only, C++2011-based library, that can be integrated with C++ applications, including SystemC models. It’s primary use case is to measure the level of exercise of SystemC models, basically to measure how many of model’s […]
