Abstract The SystemC Transaction Level Modeling (TLM) standard is widely used for modeling and simulation in hardware/software co-design. However, the semantics of the TLM core interfaces is only informally defined. This makes it impossible to apply formal verification techniques to transaction level models that conform to the TLM standard. To solve this problem, we propose a formal semantics of the TLM transport mechanisms using timed automata. We achieve this by a transformation from a given TLM model into a set of timed automata that precisely capture the semantics of the TLM core interfaces. This transformation is an extension of our previously proposed transformation from SystemC model into UPPAAL timed automata and can be used to verify temporal properties of TLM models using the UPPAAL model checker.
