We present a new approach of interconnecting diverse Sys-temC simulations using the High Level Architecture (HLA) as simulation backbone. The presented simulation environment is characterized by its generality and extendability. It basically allows different kinds of execution like distributed simulation of a single SystemC model as well as co-simulation with other arbitrary simulators. The emphasis within this work is on the synchronization and time flow mechanisms that need to be applied when

The Sys-temC model exploits temporal decoupling which allows adjusting different computation to synchronization ratios, serving as basis for performance evaluation.
