, the leader in virtualized software development (VSD) solutions for electronic systems, today announced that principal technology specialist Ross Dickson will lead a discussion entitled “
Using Virtual Hardware to Help Embedded Software Development”
during the MontaVista Vision 2008 Embedded Linux Developers Conference
, October 1-3, 2008 at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco, Calif. The presentation will focus on how virtual platforms make it possible to analyze the performance of code in a way not possible on physical hardware. Dickson will present real-world examples of how virtual platforms enable software development well in advance of actual physical hardware prototype availability, thereby saving time to market and allowing faster edit-compile-debug cycles.
“Virtual platforms provide a more convenient software execution environment which makes it possible to analyze the performance of code in great detail,” said Ross Dickson, principal technology specialist at Virtutech. “Unique debug abilities such as synchronous breakpoints for an entire system, the ability to non-intrusively inspect the target state, checkpoint save and restore functions and reversible execution and debug makes it possible for developers to speed time to market while ensuring high quality applications.”
Virtutech will be exhibiting at the Vision Embedded Linux Developers Conference at booth #6. Media interested in speaking with Virtutech to learn more about advancements in virtual platforms, software virtualization and Virtutech’s Simics® should contact Schwartz Communications at (781) 684-0770 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
