January 21, 2010 -- This article proposes a methodology to develop SystemC TLM 2.0 peripheral models and a technique to incorporate loosely timed (LT) and approximately timed (AT) modes in them. This methodology uses simple_target_socket to model slave interface, since a single transport function can be used for both blocking and non-blocking transport call. An input Boolean port controls the addition of timing logic in AT mode of operation.
