Late last year, I presented a one-hour webinar on how Simics lets you “resolve bugs in minutes instead of weeks.” Part of that webinar were two Simics demos that show Simics in action, from the first booting of a target system through loading software onto it and debugging a nasty crash in a server program. The webinar demos are now available as a single Youtube movie, on the Wind River Youtube channel.
The target system used in the demo is a heterogeneous network of four machines. Two ARM-based and two PPC-based. Two of them are running a client application, and two are running a server application. They are all connected on the same virtual Ethernet network, and the client applications can talk to the server applications over the network.
