Course Description

This course provides engineers and system architects with a fast, cost-effective way to learn to use Wind River® Simics® Model Builder for modeling systems. Wind River Simics Model Builder is an add-on to the Wind River Simics system simulator that lets you create your own models, ranging from simple devices to complex, multi-component systems. The course explains how to build models of on-chip systems and boards from an existing set of devices and other components.

Course Results

After this course, participants will be able to perform the following:

  • Follow the general component modeling process.
  • Create hierarchical component models in Python.
  • Compile components and test them for correct functionality, including Simics features like checkpointing and reverse execution.

Products Supported

  • Wind River Simics Model Builder for Simics 4.8

Who Should Attend

  • Software developers and testers

Course Format

  • This one-day, expert-led course consists of lectures and lab sessions.
  • Attendees use Wind River Simics Model Builder for Simics 4.8 to gain experience with the topics presented.
  • Participants write, compile, and test Python code to model custom systems.
  • Participants receive individual guidance from an expert engineer who has extensive experience with Wind River technologies.
