Today SCIOPTA Systems AG is announcing the immediate availability of the SCIOPTA Simulator on Windows® PC Workstations

SCIOPTA WIN32 Kernel Simulator is an environment on a PC workstation running Microsoft® Windows® WIN32 for simulating a SCIOPTA kernel and SCIOPTA applications.

SCIOPTA WIN32 Kernel Simulator is royalty free and supports actually the Microsoft® Visual C++ Development Environments.

SCIOPTA Simulator Scheduling

>Each SCIOPTA process is implemented as a Windows Thread.

The SCIOPTA scheduler is located inside an own Windows Thread. This Thread has a higher priority than all other SCIOPTA process threads to guarantee the same scheduling behaviour of the SCIOPTA Simulator as a SCIOPTA in a real target system.

SCIOPTA Simulator Interrupt Processes

SCIOPTA interrupt processes are also implemented as Windows Threads.

Any blocking windows functions (e.g. ReadConsoleInput) can be used as simulated interrupt source.

SCIOPTA WIN32 Kernel Simulator Development Environment

In order to design, develop, debug and run a SCIOPTA Kernel Simulator application you need a Microsoft® Visual C++ Development Environment.

The SCIOPTA Kernel Simulator product is tested with the following two Microsoft® Visual C++ Development Environments:

– Microsoft Visual C++ Version 6.0

– Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Version 8.0

For both environments getting started example are included.

Other Microsoft® C/C++ environment might work but are not tested.
