VMM 1.2 introduces a set of features for transaction-level communication inspired by the SystemC TLM-2.0 standard. At the same time, the VCS TLI has been upgraded to support the TLM-2.0 standard. This paper, written by the author of the TLM-2.0 standard itself, explains the significance of these new features to VMM and gives ideas on how best to exploit these features for communication between a SystemC reference model and a SystemVerilog test bench.
