Cofluent Design develops methodology for UML
Cofluent Design has announced that it has developed a methodology.
It combines the Object Management Group's standard Unified Modeling Language (UML), System Modelling Language and Modelling and Analysis for Real-Time and Embedded Systems profile.
The methodology for UML allows designers of embedded devices and chips to describe, in a comprehensive way, models of real-time embedded applications and use cases, and represent their execution on multiprocessor/multicore platforms.
Non-functional requirements, such as execution times, power, memory and cost, can be captured in models.
By exporting UML models to Cofluent Studio - Cofluent's Eclipse-based system-level modelling and simulation environment - designers can use C/C++ as action language and generate transaction-level modelling System C code to run simulations.
The instrumented System C code, coupled with Cofluent Studio's analysis tools, allows designers to observe the real-time execution of their models and extract performance figures like latencies, throughputs, buffer levels, resource loads, power consumption, memory footprint and cost.
Cofluent Design will exhibit on 2-4 March, 2010, at Embedded World 2010 in Nuremberg, Germany, where a pre-release of the Cofluent Studio-Magicdraw integration will be demonstrated.
Cofluent Design will also exhibit at the Embedded Systems Conference, Silicon Valley, San Jose, California, on 26-29 April, 2010.
Review Display Systems has introduced a fourth-generation Intel Core processor-based 3.5in single-board computer from Aaeon. The Gene-QM87 offers a variety of display formats, opening up application areas in gaming, entertainment and industrial automation as well as digital signage.
Pacer recently exhibited its technologies and capabilities at DSEI London 2013, an event dedicated to the security and defence sectors. The company distributes products such as optics and sensors, lasers and detectors, and displays, and also has a special projects division to help customers solve whatever design challenges they may face.
The Impact-E PCIe is a compact, low-power embedded PC featuring the Intel D525 Atom processor. The computer is assembled and tested within a lean manufacturing environment under ISO 9001.
Amplicon has added to its industrial embedded Impact-E series with the Impact-E PCIe, a compact fanless embedded system. Powered by an Intel Atom D525 dual-core processor, the system is suitable for multiple applications that support PCIe.
Industry is traditionally slow to adopt any new Microsoft operating system. Many industrial Windows users will have no need for the many new features on offer and will be cautious of potential bugs or security flaws. It is rarely worth considering switching to a new operating system unless you are developing a new product. For those who are making the switch, this white paper from Amplicon describes the key benefits of using Windows 7.
