There are a number of compelling reasons that SystemC and SystemVerilog should co-exist in advanced verification environments. Hence, many attempts have been made to mix the two languages. The paper addresses the limitations of these current approaches, specifically in terms of scalability for multiple transactions types and dynamic allocation of data to be transferred across the language boundary. A general and scalable method for mixing SystemC and SystemVerilog data transactions and models will be presented, accompanied by working example code taken from real-life projects.
