This paper presents a proof-of-concept for a modular SystemC SIL (Software-in-the-Loop) simulation environment, using a blackboard-like architecture. The proposed SIL framework integrates embedded control software with simulators developed in SystemC/SystemC-AMS or external tools, like MATLAB. The environment has been validated by a heating application for a professional printer, as example of an MDVP (Multi-Domain Virtual Prototyping) application. Our goal is to evaluate the use of SystemC/SystemC-AMS and to address the challenges in developing multiple-domain prototypes and blackboard-like SIL frameworks using this technology.
