The COSSIM simulation framework is the first known open-source, high-performance simulator that can handle holistically system-of-systems including processors, peripherals and networks; such an approach is very appealing to both Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and Highly Parallel Systems (HPS) designers and application developers.
COSSIM is built on top of several well-established simulators:
To bind the whole framework together, COSSIM employs the HLA architecture through the open-source CERTI package. Additionally, a sophisticated Eclipse-based GUI has been developed to provide easy simulation set-up, execution and visualization of results.
COSSIM was developed under the EU Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Programme Project No: H2020-644042.
