In this paper we present a method to perform static timing analysis of SystemC models, that describe parallel, communicating software processes. The paper combines a worst-case execution time (WCET) analysis with an analysis of the communication behavior. The communication analysis allows the detection of points, where the program flow of two or more concurrent processes are synchronized. This knowledge allows the determination of the worst-case response time (WCRT). The method does not rely on restrictions on the system design to prevent deadlocks or data loss. Furthermore possible deadlocks and data loss can be detected during the analysis.
