Simulation is used by most engineering disciplines in today’s world. Simulation allows engineers to test designs faster, cheaper, and more reliably than using the physical world alone. In the software disciplines simulating the functional behavior of target hardware, allows engineering, integration, and test teams to work simultaneously, reducing the development time and improving the quality of safety-critical systems.

Using Simics, developers preparing for certification can reduce costs, time and risk of failure. In this webinar, you will learn how:

  • Simics properties that have proven useful for safety-critical system developers
  • Total certification costs can be reduced without actually making any attempt to test for credit with Simics
  • Hardware needs are reduced during development while simultaneously increasing the availability of test systems

Ross Dickson, Product Line Manager, Wind River Simics
Ross has over a decade of experience building and deploying full system simulation environments for software and systems development. As the Product Line Manager – Simics Model Library Ross is responsible for the definition and management of the library of Simics models and collaborate on general product definition. Additionally, Ross represents Wind River Simics at industry and trade organizations, and helps customers realize the business values provided by Simics technology. Prior to joining product management Ross founded the Simics field engineering team and has worked with numerous Wind River customers to implement simulation platforms and to introduce their use across the enterprise. These customers have realized significant productivity, time to market and hardware cost reduction benefits. In his role as a Solution Architect Ross worked with key Wind River customers to build custom solutions leveraging Wind River technologies. Ross holds a MS in Computer Science with a focus on multi-processor memory system design from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
