Express Logic, Inc. (San Diego, CA) and Virtutech, Inc. (San Jose, CA) have announced the availability of Express Logic's ThreadX® RTOS on a simulated development platform created by Virtutech's Simics®. Using Virtutech's full-system simulator, Express Logic was able to provide engineers and developers interested in developing for the ThreadX RTOS with the necessary architecture to create applications for the Renesas Technology SH-4A, a high-end CPU core.

Simics is a highperformance full-system simulator that enables engineers to develop, debug, test, and run their entire software application stack on a virtual representation of their target hardware. This Virtual Software Development (VSD) platform improves the entire product development lifecycle, shortening time-to-market and time-to-profit and accelerating market introduction and customer adoption. Simics runs unmodified productionquality binaries and can be used with third-party software development tools.
