Intel® CoFluent™ Reader provides the same tools and environment as Intel® CoFluent™ Studio, but in read-only mode. In its free version, it allows play back of recorded simulations.
Running simulations and explorations with varying parameters is possible with a dedicated license.
Establishing an unambiguous and common reference view and an understanding of the problem and its solution between all project members.
Multithreaded workload (modeling an embedded real-time software application) running on a multicore multi-OS platform. Objective: predict system performance by running multiple simulations with different platform architectures—single-core, AMP, sAMP, SMP, etc. The influence of virtualization layers such as hypervisor and supervisor, as well as number of cores is monitored during the simulations.
Software-Defined Radio system which combines an audio protocol stack (based on UMTS) and video protocol stack (based on DVB-H) in a mobile phone. Objective: to analyze behavior and performance of the system in terms of resource load, power consumption and latencies for realistic and worst-case scenarios.
Example of TCP/IP stack and its MAC layer. Objective: to study the impact of different buffer sizes and traffic load on the behavior of the stack and in terms of network latency and throughput. Multiple architectures are explored and their performance analyzed including power consumption and resource load. The project also illustrates how to model design exploration parameters.
