Wind River announced version 4.6 of their Simics full system simulator. Simics can simulate the functional behavior of the target hardware, from a single processor to large, complex, and connected electronic systems. Simics 4.6 features the ability to debug software applications that expand over multiple boards, increases team collaboration, and enables target system visualization and surveillance. Wind River Simics v4.6 will be available by the end of this month.
Wind River Simics 4.4 enables engineers to define, develop, and deploy product using a virtual representation of the target hardware. Wind River Simics 4.4 supports full system simulation and allows original equipment manufacturers to undertake critical software development activities on virtual platforms, independently of any hardware development schedules, semiconductor availability constraints or other limitations. Simics will be available worldwide by the end of May, 2010.
