VaST Showcases Virtual Systems Prototyping Solutions at Embedded World

2/13/2006 - VaST Systems Technology Corporation will be demonstrating its virtual system prototyping (VSP) solutions, used by world leaders for embedded systems architecture analysis and optimisation and concurrent development of software and hardware, at the Embedded World conference in Nuremberg from February 14-16, 2006.

VaST technology enables the creation of very high-performance simulation-based cycle-accurate software models of embedded systems, operating at or near real-time speeds.

A key advantage of using a VaST VSP is that the hardware and software portions of the system can be developed and evaluated concurrently. A VSP allows different hardware architectures to be quickly and easily tested and analysed under real software workloads. Furthermore, while hard real-time software code is being developed, its execution yields trace data (from probes inserted into the models) from which performance (timing, reaction times, latency times, etc.) and power data are produced alongside normal debug data.

VaST technology enables its users to begin embedded software development many months before the actual hardware, or even a hardware prototype, is available. VaSTís customers include world leaders in the wireless, consumer electronics and automotive industries.

About VaST
VaST Systems Technology Corporation provides tools and models for embedded system design solutions. VaST's technology enables the creation of a virtual system prototypeóa cycle-accurate software model of a system that operates at near real-time speeds under actual software loads. Solutions from VaST are used for architectural analysis and optimization and for the concurrent development of hardware and software. VaST virtual system prototypes dramatically improve time to market, quality, and also reduce development costs and risk.

Current customers include worldwide leaders in semiconductors, automotive electronics, wireless devices, and consumer electronics. VaST is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California with sales and support offices worldwide.
