Electronic systems are becoming increasingly complex, with multiple processor architectures, multilay- ered software stacks, and more connectivity. With more connections comes additional security risk, which needs to be tested thoroughly. Compounding the challenge is the fact that developers have turned to DevOps and continuous development practices to meet customer and company expectations for quick deliveries. Such methodologies rely on fast iterations for test, feedback, and deployment. Collaborative and cross-func- tional teams need tools to communicate and share a common development baseline. Wind River ® Simics ® allows developers to have on-demand access to any target system at any time. It en- ables more efficient collaboration between developers and quality assurance teams. Simics provides an au- tomation API, enabling organizations to reap the business benefits of DevOps and continuous development practices to create and deliver better, more secure software, faster—even for complex, embedded, connected, and large IoT systems. DEVELOP SOFTWARE IN A VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT Simics provides the access, automation, and collaboration required to enable DevOps and continuous development practices. By using virtual platforms and simulation, software developers can decouple their work from physical hard- ware and its limitations during development. Access to virtual hardware allows developers to do continuous integra- tion and automated testing much sooner in the development cycle—even before the hardware design is finalized—as well as perform both testing and debugging during design and prototyping phases. All team members can have unlimited access to virtual hardware, allowing new ways of working and improved collaboration throughout the lifecy- cle. Virtual hardware can be shipped anywhere, at any time, improving collaboration and ensuring a common baseline Wind River Simics Simulate Anything, Chip to System Simics Core Processors Memory Storage Devices Network and I/O Virtual Hardware Wind River Simics Virtual Platform Application Software Middleware Drivers, BSP, Firmware, RTOS Hypervisor Model Library CC++, SystemC Python, DML Wind River Customers Ecosystem Off-the-Shelf Target Software Stack Other Tools Such as Sim, Debug, Test Real-World Equipment Virtual Serial, Keyboard, Mouse, Graphics 1
