Paper Abstract

This paper presents an implementation in SystemC of the LonTalk protocol starting from the reference code for the MC68360 microcontroller. The SystemC code of the LonTalk protocol has been written at transaction level with the aim of reusability and high simulation speed. The efficiency of the LonTalk protocol as been verified in a powerline network with different number of nodes in the network, different type of traffic and in presence of noise in the channel. We verified that SystemC can be easily used as a executable language to define protocols, ensuring reusability and reduced design time.
