To deal with the ever growing complexity of Systems-on-Chip, designers use models early in the design flow. SystemC is a commonly used tool to write such models. In order to verify these models, one thriving approach is to encode its semantics into a formal language, and then to verify it with verification tools. Various encodings of SystemC into formal lan- guages have already been proposed, with different performance implications. In this paper, we investigate a new, automatic, asynchronous means to formalize models. Our encoding supports the subset of the concurrency and communication constructs offered by SystemC used for high-level modeling. We increase the confidence in the fact that encoded programs have the same semantics as the original one by model-checking a set of properties. We give experimental results on our formalization and compare with previous works.
