This chapter gives an overview of a modeling application in the general embedded systems design flow and presents two general approaches for the embedded networks simulation: network modeling and protocol stack modeling. The authors select two widely used modeling languages, which are SDL and SystemC. The analysis shows that both languages have a number of advantages that could be combined by the joint use of SystemC and SDL. Thus, the authors propose an approach for the SystemC and SDL co-modeling. This approach can be used in practice to perform protocol stack simulation as well as simulation of network operation. Therefore, the authors give examples of co-modeling practical applications.
