Today verification, testing and debugging of SystemC models can be applied at an early stage in the design process. To support these techniques gaining required information of the respective model, the SystemC Verification Library (SCV) implements a concept called data introspection. Unfortunately data introspection holds problems that arise with increasing usage of language features. Native C++ data types for instance will not appear in meta-data extracted by introspection facilities. In this
