Embedded Software Test Tool Provides Open Source, Integrated Lightweight Target Emulation
Mon, 02/28/2011 - 9:33am
AdaCore’s GNATemulator is presented as an efficient and flexible emulator solution for testing embedded software applications. Based on the QEMU technology, a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer, the new GNATemulator tool allows software developers to compile code directly for their target architecture and run it on their host platform, through an approach that translates from the target object code to native instructions on the host. This avoids the inconvenience and cost of managing an actual board, while offering an efficient testing environment compatible with the final hardware.
