Cofluent Design develops methodology for UML

Cofluent Design

UML methodology

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.
