WHY: The SystemC AMS 2.0 draft standard introduces dynamic features to the Timed Data Flow (TDF) model of computation, the abstract modeling style introduced in SystemC AMS. Since the release of the SystemC AMS 1.0 standard two years ago, the AMS Working Group has now formalized the execution semantics and language constructs for these dynamic features, which are documented in the AMS Language Reference Manual. Feedback from the worldwide user community is sought to improve and refine the standard.
