The rising complexity of embedded system design and the increasing engineering efforts for their realization has resulted in a widening of the productivity gap. Efforts towards mitigating the productivity gap have raised the importance of System Level Design (SLD)s languages and frameworks. In recent years, one has seen SLD languages such as SystemC, SpecC, SystemVerilog in efforts to raise the level of abstraction in hardware design. These research paper issues of extendibility, deployment, the inadequacies in system level design languages and frameworks by presenting a service oriented architecture for validating system level designs for SystemC called CARH.
