Virtutech to Share Virtualized Software Development Techniques

Virtutech, Inc., the leading provider of virtualized software development solutions for advanced electronic systems, will present two sessions on techniques to test and debug software with virtualized software development at the Multicore Expo, the only conference dedicated to delivering real developer solutions for multicore and multiprocessing designs. Additionally, Virtutech Simics technology will be showcased at Virtutech booth number 47.

Multicore processing is changing the embedded systems landscape and creating difficult testing and debugging challenges. With software now dominating the cost and schedule risk of system development, developers are turning to virtualized software development for advanced testing capabilities, including increased control, determinism and observability. By enabling the software development phase to begin earlier in the production cycle and delivering features above and beyond those of traditional approaches, virtualized software development has established itself as a powerful tool for developing complex systems such as multicore.
