In this paper a method is introduced for the simulation of high data rate logic pulses on lossy coupled lines, e.g. SATA cables. With the proposed method the simulation time can be reduced by about 250 times compared to conventional methods. This allows to accomplish realistic system simulations for exploration on architectural level in SystemC-AMS efficiently and with a minimum loss of accuracy. The line model includes also the transmission losses and the crosstalk between the lines. The time domain behaviour of the model is determined by the frequency characteristics of the lines resulting from files with measurement data.
