Wind River® Simics® provides an extensive model library that makes creating a custom model of virtually any hardware system quick and easy. The Simics model library is constantly changing; please contact us for more information. Even if a model of your particular device does not yet exist, a model of it can be created either by Wind River or by a customer using Simics Model Builder.
This is a partial list of devices that have been modeled for Simics:
Ethernet controllers, PHYs, networks, and switches
IDE and SATA disks
I2C controllers and devices
Graphics display units
NOR and NAND Flash
PCI and PCIe controllers, bridges, and switches
Pattern matching accelerators
RapidIO controllers and switches
SCSI controllers and devices
Temperature sensors and other small I2C devices
USB devices and disks

Simics and Physics Simulation
See how Simics can be integrated with a physics simulator to simulate a complete cyberphysical system. We fast-forward time and inject faults, testing how software interacts with (virtual) reality.
See how to build a new device, add it to an existing target system, and experience the Simics modeling process from creation to completion.
Find out how easy it is to set up a session with Simics and get acquainted with some of its core capabilities.
