Proposal to Extend SystemC-AMS with a Bond Graph Based Model of Computation

There is a need to improve the modelling capabilities of SystemC-AMS concerning conservative continuous time systems involving the interaction of several physical domains and the interaction with digital control components. Bond graphs unify the description of multi-domain systems by modelling the energy flow between the electrical and non-electrical components. They integrate well with block diagrams describing the signal processing part of a system. It is proposed to develop an extension to the current SystemC-AMS prototype, which shall implement the bond graph methodology as a new Model of Computation (MoC).
