General Description

Wind River Simics is a full system simulator used by software developers to simulate any target hardware from a single processor to large, complex, and connected electronic systems. This simulation enables the target software (board support package, firmware, real-time operating system, middleware, and application) to run on a virtual platform the same way it does on the physical hardware.

Basic Usage

The recommended CRC version is SIMICS v4.2. Before using SIMICS please set up a SIMICS workspace as follows:

module load simics/4.2
workspace-setup $HOME/workspace_directory  #choose a new directory for the workspace

You can then access the SIMICS executables (both command line and GUI) and targets from your own local workspace directory.
