1.1 About Fast
Fast Models is an environment for easy creation of virtual platform models that execute with high simulation speeds. Fast Models uses Code Translation (CT) models, so the simulation speed of generated platforms ranges between 100-500 MIPS on a typical workstation.
Generated platforms are equipped with the Component
Architecture Debug Interface (CADI) and can run stand-alone or
from a suitable debugger. Fast Models automatically generates the required interfaces for
both standalone and integrated platforms.
System Canvas is the Graphical User
Interface (GUI) to the
Fast Models tools. It has a block diagram editor for creating a graphical representation of
a system. Components are defined by LISA+ code.
