2.1 About the target connection mechanism

This section describes the target connection mechanism.

CADI 2.0 provides two well-defined mechanisms for creating a connection to a target:

  • Connecting to an existing simulation that was, for example, started from another tool.
  • Instantiating a simulation and connecting to one or more of its components.

The interface also provides a clean way to disconnect from a target.

The connection mechanism consists of a set of interface classes that must be implemented.

Advantages of the CADI 2.0 connection mechanism over previous CADI versions are the ability to:

  • Create multiple instances of the same CADISimulation.
  • Fully configure and instantiate a simulation platform before connecting to one of its components.
  • Obtain an extension interface.
