Simulator integration

Simics users often need to model the physical world or look deep into the implementation of computer components. Rather than using Simics itself to create such models, it sometimes makes more sense to integrate Simics with other simulators, leaving each simulator to do what it does best. Chapter 9 addresses the reasons for and the main issues involved in creating such simulator integrations. The chapter provides a discussion on the general issues involved in integrating simulators and proven design patterns for such integrations.
