"...a welcome addition to the SystemC literature. Those new to SystemC will find it a very good introduction, and those who have already been exposed to SystemC will find it a useful reference. The style is straightforward and the extensive use of examples gives quick insight into using SystemC in real designs...." (John Sanguinetti, Ph.D., Chief Technical Officer, Forte Design Systems)"...your book helped me bridge the gap in my understanding of the SystemC scheduler and the language features with examples that are easy to follow. The discussion on a TLM approach is also very insightful." (Suhas Pai, QUALCOMM, Inc.)"...well written, and a much-needed overview of SystemC. I like that the book introduces features in context, and with enough code to help the reader understand, but without burying them in code. I found it remarkably easy to read." (Andy Meyer, Cadence Design Systems, Inc.)
