Boeing to port simulation code to cockpits

Cockpit designers from The Boeing Co. in St. Louis are funding a project at Virtual Prototypes Inc. of Montreal to streamline Virtual`s automatic code-generator technology for use in mission-critical avionics applications. Virtual Prototypes provides a tool called C Code Generator - CCG for short - which enables designers to prototype cockpit displays rapidly and use the simulation code to drive displays in the actual cockpits. The streamlined version of CCG will be called CCG/Lite. CCG was orig

Virtual Prototypes provides a tool called C Code Generator - CCG for short - which enables designers to prototype cockpit displays rapidly and use the simulation code to drive displays in the actual cockpits. The streamlined version of CCG will be called CCG/Lite. CCG was originally developed for the automotive industry. The Boeing investment in this project will enable the CCG/Lite to address the requirements of avionics displays with fewer onboard resources. - J.K.
