New release facilitates painless import of existing C/C++ system models

6 October 2004 Design Automation

Said to be the industry's first software application to integrate conceptual exploration and detailed architecture design of electronic systems, Mirabilis Design has developed platform-independent, simulation software with combined graphical and textual modelling.

The company's VisualSim release 2.5.5 allows users to construct both abstract and detailed system models using application- and design-specific, parameterised building blocks.

"Architects have been conducting ad-hoc performance modelling for a long time using point-tools with niche capabilities," says Deepak Shankar, CEO of Mirabilis Design. "These products have largely now exited the market or have limited support. Existing models have critical data that must be leveraged to minimise the integration of a new tool, such as VisualSim, into the design flow."

This release simplifies import of existing C/C++ models with minimal modification, enables user-customisation of the expression language, extends the context-sensitive documentation and adds numerous System Bus models. The C/C++ template includes input, output and bidirectional ports, common and user-defined C++ data types, access to variables across interface, automated port generation and asynchronous operations. This template supports a number of C++ compilers and OS including Visual C++, .Net, Borland and gcc on Windows and gcc on UNIX.

VisualSim is used by systems engineers, architects and embedded software designers. The software integrates model-based and language-based modelling with a native, multidomain simulation kernel. The application-independent nature of the VisualSim libraries makes it applicable for wireless, defence, networking, aerospace, automotive, high-performance computing and semiconductors.
