SystemVision conneXion (SVX) Multi-Domain, Multi-Tool Simulation
SystemVision conneXion (SVX) extends multi-discipline simulation to a whole new level – bringing software into hardware simulation and connecting industry-leading system development tools in a single simulation environment.
SystemVision conneXion extends the SystemVision multi-discipline simulation capabilities into a multi-domain, multi-tool environment.
SystemVision conneXion Explained
Systems of even modest complexity involve many design domains. The multi-discipline (analog, digital, sensor/actuator, and mechanical plant) simulation capabilities of SystemVision provide the foundation for early integration and testing of these disciplines. SystemVision conneXion extends this by connecting multiple domain-specific tools and processes together in a single simulation environment. SVX connects SystemVision, MathWorks Simulink, National Instruments LabVIEW, SystemC, C/C++, Java, and AUTOSAR over a secure, managed signal channel. SVX handles time synchronization, manages data communications, and supports tools distributed across a network. Portions of a system model are simultaneously executed in specialized, domain-specific tools with full communication and control connections between applications. Because a high percentage of design flaws are found at the interfaces where different design technologies meet, SVX reduces program risk with early integration and test across these crucial system boundaries.
Software Engineers develop embedded software in C,C++ or Java. Hardware Engineers execute abstract models written in SystemC. Both benefit from integrating together along with algorithms early in the design process.
Design and Control Algorithm Teams work together in a concurrent development flow. Control algorithms are developed and verified well before a physical prototype is available.
Design and Test Teams work together early in the development flow. Teams use a system virtual prototype for early design verification and test program development.
Automotive System Designers execute AUTOSAR software early in the design process, and within a virtual platform environment that includes feedback control and sensor/plant/actuator models.
