System Modeling - Mentor Graphics

Keywords: System Integration, System Modeling

True system modeling provides an interactive environment in which designers can verify their specific part of an overall puzzle, a puzzle in which any small change can affect the final outcome. “What-if” tradeoffs can be made, performance as a function of component tolerances can be determined, and many other analyses can be performed.

Virtualized Integration

System integration no longer requires all of the components to be available. Virtual system integration can take place at the time of system requirements definition or during preliminary or detailed design, allowing critical problems to be uncovered well before final system integration.

  • Inter-discipline modeling (HW/SW/Sensor/Actuator/Plant) facilitates global optimization
  • Modeling facilitates moving platform SW/HW integration earlier in the design cycle, reducing schedule risk
  • Synthesis (code generation) facilitates more design options, leading to better performance and/or lower cost

Modeling Transportation Systems - Mentor Graphics

Improved automation is also needed in the design of electrical, electronic and embedded software components, which require a stable and reliable software development environment for modeling, simulation, verification and testing of software interfaced to actual hardware.


Model Driven Development - Mentor Graphics

A virtual prototyping infrastructure in which models from different domains can be integrated at each stage of the development life cycle allows system integration issues to be identified and addressed earlier, helping reduce overall program time and cost.


System Modeling - Industries - Mentor Graphics

System modeling tools from Mentor Graphics allow models from different domains to be integrated at each phase of the design flow, allowing system integration issues to be identified and addressed earlier, and helping to reduce overall program time and costs in the design of complex medical electronic devices.


Medical Systems - Mentor Graphics

A multi-discipline development environment and concurrent design methodology provide continuity throughout the design, implementation, and validation phases of system development. Hardware and software development progresses in-sync, ensuring that changes in one development flow can immediately be analyzed for effects in complementary flows.


Model-Driven Systems Development for Mil/Aero Industries

Designers can use model-driven system development to test and verify their complex system designs to be compatible with harsh operating environments and compliant with strict reliability requirements. You can avoid cost overruns, schedule delays, low reliability, and even product failures related to the development of large-scale systems and platforms.
