"Red Hat has launched an open source hardware simulation framework for embedded developers called SID. The package consists of software components interacting with each other to imitate the behavior of physical hardware before its actual creation."

"SID runs on Linux, Solaris and Cygwin, while supporting the ARM and M32 CPU processor families and several non-CPU specific part models."

"Developing a simulation environment today is almost as complex as the system itself, and the framework SID provides is unprecedented in the rest of the open source community," said Kim Knuttila, vice president, Engineering Services for Red Hat, Inc. "There are other free and open source simulators available out there on the Net, but none that actually provide an environment to plug and play together."
