|Computer-supported simulations provide multiple ways to analyse design decisions and avoid many possible mistakes. For simulating large and complex systems, multiple simulation tools may be necessary, as having the means to simulate in only one tool may not be the best approach. In such cases, co-simulation can be used to simulate the said system by interconnecting the mentioned simulation tools using a co-simulation standard. A system that consists of hardware and software falls under this category of systems.
Depending on how a system is to be co-simulated, choosing a co-simulation standard can be challenging, as there are many factors and trade-offs to consider. In this thesis, existing co-simulation standards with discrete-event-based co-simulation support will be researched and compared to one another. This comparison will then be used to choose a co-simulation standard for an exemplary case of hardware-software co-simulation, which will be prototypically implemented and evaluated.
