Overview

This course introduces students to a test-driven development approach for creating Wind River® Simics® device models. They can follow along as the beginning of a working model of an i8254 timer device is developed from the ground up. The emphasis is on creating tests based on the specification, which then drives the creation of the device model. Students are expected to become familiar with the i8254 device and its specification (available freely online).
