Overview

 This Tech Talk explores all the details of a typical machine configuration script: how the board is created and how a typical Linux image is loaded on the board. Once we understand single machine scripts, we explore how to extend a single machine to multiple targets.

Overview

Often a target interacts with external devices that provide events, data, or stimuli via sensors or legacy host applications. It is common for these external devices to be simulated as well, and these simulations have gone through extensive testing. Reusing such a simulation is beneficial in many ways. In this tutorial, various aspects of interfacing Simics with such existing in-house simulations is discussed, along with a demonstration of such interfacing.

This Tech Talk focuses on Wind River® Simics® modules packaging, walking through the installed target scripts that set up the virtual hardware and software booting on a target. We will also explore the quickest type of boot option available for targets booting VxWorks®. Finally, we will see how external tools like the Wind River Workbench debugger can be used to connect and debug a sample kernel module running on a Simics target.

Overview

This Tech Talk is a basic introduction to the Wind River® Simics® product, including discussion of its operational capabilities, debug features, architecture, and user interfaces. Also included is discussion of its infrastructure and its modeling methodology. A demonstration illustrates the role of the Simics project, the Simics script, and the graphical user interface. A second demonstration explores the Simics command-line interface (CLI) and the Help subsystem.
