Time Accurate Simulation: Making a PC Behave Like a 8-Bit Embedded CPU

By Jakob Engblom and Magnus Nilsson


When developing embedded systems, developers often use simulation techniques to allow development to proceed without access to the target hardware. To make use of the high quality development tools available on the PC platform, one popular simulation method is to compile the code intended for the target system to run on the PC, allowing the development of the software to proceed on the PC without use of the final target system. For a distributed system, each target node is given its own process on the host PC, with software on the PC simulating the communications network.
