    Hello ,
    i am interested in designing simualtion software for
    microcontrollers ,communication systems or for embedded systems.
    can anyone suggest a particular type of simulation/problem/device
    that i can use as start point for my design?

    for PICs there are number of (free/open) simulators started,
    but none of them is completed and
    none of them can hold the growth in new components.

    Why not join one of these developments ?
    Or is it a school assignment ?

  3. TI allways seemed to be lacking any free support for their micros. In compiliers and simulators.
    At least as far as I could tell. But it may be a copyright problem.

    Hello Jeff,
    thanks a lot.... i have seen the links and have downloaded the mSim
    1.79 source...
    i will try to understand it first and then join one of those projects
    or experiment on my own

    hi Hari,

    well here's a nice (at least in my view) open source project

    and if you look on my site under "JALss home / Other simulators",
    you can find a whole list of simulators / emulators.
    (JALss is a simulator I build myself, and I don't know what the future
    plans, but it might give you also some ideas).
    My greatest interest would be to integrate the simulator with some
    standard schematic drawing packages (like Eagle which is very popular
    under hobbyists) and on the other hand to couple it to spice, for real
    analog simulations.

    - what operating system / program language do you have in mind ?

    thanks a lot stef,

    i have seen the links posted by you....
    i was thinking about JAVA as it gives portability...
    or maybe VC++ if it will go easily.....

    i plan to start as soon as i free up a bit from my current assignment
