  • 01-04-2017 Mk6.1 Distributions Now Available

    The new EuroSim Mk6.1 distribution is now available. The 6.1 further extends the 6.0 on the Mil1553 bus interface. In cooperation with AIM we further extended the driver with hard realtime access methods. The 6.1 is capable of supporting multiple busses over multiple multistream boards. It also support not only the remote terminal side, but also the bus controller side. The ThermoMra example has been extended and utilizes the plugin. As a consequence of using the plugin technology it becomes possible to further minimize the variety in schedule files as the dependency on the hardware is shielded from EuroSim. The sasme plugin solution also applies to the Discrete Front-End. Current developments at Airbus are on providing the plugin for the Euclid program, making the interfacing with Airbus ESPRiT discrete front-ends much easier for the future.

  • 01-12-2016 Mk6.0 Distributions Now Available

    The new EuroSim Mk6.0 distributions is now available. This upgrtade provides many new features including support to start a simulator in the debugger and integrated display of timing in the simulation controller. Furthermore we added a brand new model architecture approach designed for EGSE and based on the succesful GAIA simulator developments. The solution extends the native C++ API. This API now also includes Front-End models which separate the equipment models from the specific Front-End hardware and making the interface with equipment a lot easier.

  • 24-03-2015 Mk5.3 Distribution Now Available

    The new EuroSim Mk5.3 distributions are now available. This upgrade features many improvements, including an improvement on the Development editors: Project Manager, ModelEditor, ModelDescriptionEditor, ParameterExchangeEditor, CalibrationEditor. The latter three are now subeditors of the ModelEditor and have improved integration. The ParameterExchangeEditor also supports Calibrations on dataflows.

    We also started to restructure the Software User Manual. The restructure is complete and the Reference Volumes have substantially improved. The User Guide volume has been expanded with TroubleShooting information, we look forward to further improving this guide with information from our training courses.

    The C++ interface has been further expanded with the Port an Channel metafore implementation, making it easy to connect models. A graphical support for this feature is high on our wish list and will be picked up in the Mk6

    The Mk6 will follow shortly in beta release. The rationale for releasing a Mk5.3 instead of upgrading to Mk6 is that we had many improvements that were not requiring adjustements that break the backward compatibility. Mk6 will make some steps that require an update in some file formats and the daemon interface.

  • 09-03-2014 Mk5.2 Distributions Now Available

    The new Eurosim Mk5.2 distributions are now available. This upgrade mainly focusses on supporting new platforms, though we also have resolved software problems, imrproved the native C++ interface and added Enterprise Architect UML transformations and codegeneration capabilities.

    The EuroSim for Linux distributions now support RedHawk 6.3 32 and 64 bits versions for the Concurrent Realtime platform and Scientific Linux/Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 32 and 64 bits versions including the MRG kernel for other PCs. For the Concurrent computers we can deliver guaranteed realtime systems. The Scientific/Red Hat linux distributions are "do it yourself" solutions, where EuroSim is capable of achieving realtime behavior but such depends on the qualities of your platform and its tuning. Other distributions can be supported at additional cost as we have to integrate that in our regression testing infrastructure. (See EuroSim Products ) for more information on supported platforms, licenses and systems.

    Our EuroSim for Windows release has also greatly improved under the hood, now supporting 32 and 64 bits Windows 7. We no longer rely on the Cygwin suite and have upgraded to modern versions of tools such at the MinGW compiler suite version 4.8, and greatly improved the installation using installers based on Inno Setup. The EuroSim for Windows application is still a 32-bit application but runs out of the box on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7. Note that we consider EuroSim 5.2.1 still a beta release as we particularly expect that the installers will run into some unforeseen installations of Windows in combination with networks. We offer customers the ability to try out this windows 7 version for this purpose and expect to improve with patch releases..

    EuroSim owners that have maintenance contract on their licence can now download this new EuroSim version (5.2.1).

  • 25-06-2013 Mk5.1 Distributions Now Available

    The new Eurosim Mk5.1 distributions are now available. In this distribution we have integrated our Enterprise Architect UML Extension and documented its usage in the User Manual. This release also marks the return of Eurosim for Windows. With a complete rehaul of our build environment we are now providing a complete new build with updated tools and components and able to run on Windows7. The installation is simplified with a new installer that you can run from your provided software download section on our website. Due to the variety in PCs and software that can interfere with EuroSim operation, we do see the 5.1 as a beta stage for EuroSim. Feedback from customers and partners will be used to solve further problems and provided via the 5.2 release already anticipated for August (64-bit versions).

  • 02-12-2011: Turkish Aerospace Industries engineers 4-star EuroSim certified

    After their initial training up to Developer level at Airbus Defence and Space Netherlands, the team of engineers from Turkish Aerospace Industries returned on 30 November to Airbus DS to complete their EuroSim training up to Specialist level. The benefit of training at Airbus Defence and Space NL is that we can provide some 'expert' sessions, where we ask available experienced engineers to give a presentation about their work or specialist area in relation to EuroSim. This time we were lucky to have Chris Skluzacek from Cesium Software to talk about the brand new OpenIGS2 visualisation tool that is scheduled for release in January, and Erik Schenkeveld from Airbus DS to explain and demonstrate the new GGNCSim add-on also scheduled for release in January 2012. Besides these presentations, the team of engineers from TAI were invited by ESA/Estec in Noordwijk for a demonstration of the Avionics Test Bench, which is a good example of the use of EuroSim in the project lifecycle of avionics sytem development. For more information on EuroSim courses please see the EuroSim Training web pages. If you have an interest in attending a course, either with your team in your own class, or by joining an open class, please contact us and let us know.

  • 31-10-2011: Update of EuroSim web pages

    The consortium is in the process of updating the webpages. Our first focus is to restructure, update and complete all information, before we start focussing on a more modern look and feel. The structural improvements have improved the overview of what we cover, distinctioning between products and services. For the products we are now working on extending our product suite in licenses, systems and partner products. Where previously only licenses were available, we now are working on providing a wider range of products to help customers getting started quickly.
    For services our main focus has been on the definition of the new set of courses, which are now completely explained in the training web pages. Several companies have already attended the full training program and have provided positive feedback on what they learned and exercised with. We added some pictures of classes and newly EuroSim certified engineers, as well as a hall of fame where the certification level for those that attended the new course series can be found.
    Finally we have further enlarged the set of resoures we offer in support of customers. The support page contains papers, presentations, manuals, frequently asked questions and HW/SW requirements information. In addition we have added the release plan to provide customers an indication what they can expect in upcoming releases.
