Twins with SIMICS


Date: 15th June 2021

Time: 12:00 – 13:00 (Adelaide Time)


Embedded Software development workflows have made leaps & bounds from Waterfall model to Agile to CI/CD to DevOps and DevSecOps. The availability of Embedded Hardware is one of the weakest links in order to leverage the advantages of these development workflows. Often, the software teams are blocked for availability of hardware, or not enough hardware for expediting the software development & testing. Software simulation is proving to play a vital role in substituting hardware in not only software development but also in automating the testing and verification process.

In this talk, we will introduce how simulation can left shift software development by integrating the software testing in the software development process. We will be discussing Wind River Simics which is a full System simulator that can simulate any embedded hardware from a Processor, System-On-Chip, Board, rack of boards and complete system that is agnostic to the software that executes on it. The talk also will be highlighting some unique features that Simics offers that makes some of software testing & verification feasible that would be challenging to carry out on a real hardware.
