Siemens Adopts CoWare Electronic System Virtualization Solutions for the Development of Industrial Ethernet Components
CoWare, Inc., the leading supplier of Electronic System Virtualization™ software and services, announced today that Siemens is using its Electronic System Virtualization technology to accelerate the development of Siemens’ Industrial Ethernet (PROFINET) Components. Using CoWare Platform Architect and CoWare Virtual Platform, Siemens developed a virtualized model of a PROFINET device. The analysis visibility and debugging control of the virtualized model delivers a more efficient and productive environment over traditional methods for architecture design and software development.

“The use of Ethernet on the factory floor is growing rapidly and results in the need for optimized Ethernet components such as our new PROFINET device,” said Andreas v. Schwerin, Director, Electronic System Simulation, at Siemens in Nuremberg. “Developing the system architecture and the software for these new complex systems requires innovation and new development infrastructure for our development process. CoWare Electronic System Virtualization technologies and services provide us with the right standards-based, full system simulation approach we need.”

Through this development, Siemens integrated CoWare technologies and leveraged CoWare deployment expertise in their development process. CoWare provided:

  • An efficient standards-based creation environment for the virtualized Industrial Ethernet Device;
  • A comprehensive set of analysis and debug tools for optimizing the architecture design and accelerating the software development;
  • Services to support the effective deployment of electronic system virtualization technologies in the development process.

“The increased processing and software content of industrial electronic systems requires industrial companies to innovate in their development process. Siemens demonstrates, with the Industrial Ethernet Device design, that Electronic System Virtualization can effectively be deployed to optimize and accelerate the development,” said Marc Serughetti, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, CoWare. “We are pleased to support the innovation Siemens brings to the industrial automation market with our leading technology and deployment expertise.”
