Coupling SystemC and FMI for co-simulation of Cyber-Physical Systems

Participants : Stefano Centomo, Julien Deantoni, Robert de Simone.

In the context of Stefano Centoma master internship, and in collaboration with his global supervisor Professor Davide Quaglia, from the University of Verona, we considered the possibility to build heterogenous, multi-physics co-simulation schemes for hybrid continuous-discrete Cyber-Physical systems. The first step consisted in extracting relevant interface information from IP component described in the SystemC language; it was naturally inspired from some of our former work. But currently IP-XACT is meant to address easy component assembly at the structural (static) level, and is not concerned with dynamical aspects of behavior simulation. This extension, and the proper combination with the FMI standard for its purpose, allowing hybrid and multiform co-simulation of SystemC components (and also others describing the continuous physical environment) are the next-step objective being currently tacked.
