PARIS CoFluent Design (Nantes, France) and No Magic Inc. (Plano, Texas) announced they have combined MagicDraw UML Modeler and CoFluent Studio SystemC-based simulation environment to provide an integrated solution for executing use cases and analyzing the performance of multicore real-time embedded systems.
This win-win proposition aims to help embedded systems and chip designers describe in a comprehensive way models of real-time embedded applications and use cases, and represent their execution on multiprocessor/multicore platforms, partners said.
No Magic said MagicDraw UML Modeler offers support for the CoFluent methodology through a dedicated plug-in option. And, CoFluent Studio users can choose UML as their modeling language and import MagicDraw projects.
They can also integrate MagicDraw into CoFluent Studio as an Eclipse plug-in for using a unified modeling and simulation environment. CoFluent Studio converts UML models into executable SystemC code.
In parallel, CoFluent said it has developed a methodology that combines the OMG's (Object Management Group) standards UML (Unified Modeling Language), SysML (System Modeling Language) and MARTE (Modeling and Analysis for Real-Time and Embedded Systems) profile.
