Users can find an initial listing of more than 500 system-level models of common SoC building blocks such as processor, interface and interconnect IP. Modelling support is available from experts around the world through a broad community of leading IP vendors, tool providers, service companies, consultants and universities. A centralised online resource with intuitive search functionality will help visitor to find relevant models as well as industry news, forums and blogs.

Transaction-level models raise designer productivity by increasing the level of abstraction at which they design. TLMs are predominantly used in virtual prototypes which allow engineers to accelerate their software design schedules by up to nine months and significantly improve the productivity of their software development, hardware/software integration, and system validation tasks.

Escalating software content in semiconductor and electronic products is driving the adoption of virtual prototyping, which enables software development to start earlier and be completed with less effort than traditional methods. Until now, virtual prototype developers lacked a centralised resource for finding TLMs available from third-parties, often re-creating models that had already been developed. TLMCentral greatly improves the efficiency of developing virtual prototypes by providing an online infrastructure for aggregating free and commercial system-level models from across the industry, including more than 500 models at launch.

Using an intuitive search interface, engineers can rapidly find models at varying levels of speed and accuracy that are available for their design blocks. These models are contributed by leading IP vendors around the world including ARM, Arteris, CEVA, MIPS, Sonics, Synopsys, Tensilica and Vivante; leading service providers including HCL Technologies and Kasura; and leading research institutes including Industrial Technology Research Insititute (ITRI) and RWTH Aachen University. In addition, TLMCentral offers industry news, forums and blogs to connect the TLM community.
