SystemC has become an accepted standard for design of HW/SW Systems at system level. How-ever, nowadays systems include more and more analog/RF components such as transceivers, sensor interfaces, or PLL. To enable design of such mixed-signal systems, OSCI has standardized AMS extensions for SystemC in 2010. In addition to the capabilities of SystemC for modelling multi-processor HW/SW systems, the AMS extensions enable modelling the behaviour of analog/RF parts, physical environment and digital signal processing methods. The tutorial gives an introduction into SystemC AMS extensions. The introduction includes the language itself, some simple examples, use cases and (top-down) methodology for refinement of AMS systems, starting from an executable specification.
