Technology Library

Our Technology Library provides a central source for published research, information and analysis covering some of the fundamental aspects of model-based design and simulation for the engineering of large-scale, real-time systems.

You are welcome to freely view and search our archive of published papers which we will continue to update periodically.

by Sylvain Pagerit, Phil Sharer, Aymeric Rousseau, Qinwei Sun, Mike Kropinksi, Graham Hellestrand, Neville Clark, James Torossian - IEEE-Vehicular Power and Propulsion Conference 2015, October 2015, Montréal, Canada
In this paper, we describe how engineers can rapidly define the connection of hierarchies of modules contained in Simulink models, and their topography distributed across multi-core computers, for fast and accurate simulation.
by Graham Hellestrand - 2013 7th Annual IEEE Systems Conference, 15-18 April, Orlando, FL, USA
This paper describes a Specification-based Architecture (SBA) process in which the specification is derived directly from requirements in which safety constraints have been embedded. The safety requirements ripple through each step of the engineering process and are included as part of the scenario and test case verification. The paper also introduces an SBA and model-based design process for system of systems engineering as well as the simulation technology required to use it. It discusses and demonstrates the ability to model heterogeneous systems, consisting of discrete and continuous models, with high-fidelity and high simulation performance.
by Graham Hellestrand - DATE'12 Workshop, Quo Vadis, Virtual Platforms?, Dresden Germany, 12-16 March
System level Virtual Platforms are alive and well and in use in complex real-time distributed cyber-physical systems. These systems are both much more complex and more advanced than the QVVP'12 call for papers described. This short paper indicates the state of the art in system-level platforms and outlines the process by which such platforms are generated, in part, automatically.
by Everett Lumpkin, Casey Alford - EE Times Design, 22 June 2010, Parts 1&2
This article focuses on the virtual prototype benefits after physical prototype availability. The Google Android Emulator is a well known example of how a VP delivers value even after silicon is available.
by Graham R. Hellestrand - Automotive Software Workshop 2006 San Diego, 15-17 March, University of California, San Diego
This paper addresses the use of virtual prototypes - high performance, timing accurate models – used in an empirical, automotive design process to engineer optimized systems for control and multi-media applications.
