KMD is a multi-processor debugger. It can debug with hardware boards over serial ports or with software emulators (ARM and MIPS emulators are included in the project). Using the pipe option you can debug over the network or any other communication medium. It can load many executable formats such as ELF, and display and follow the original source even from multiple source file programs. There is support for breakpoints and watchpoints which can trap on specific data (such as loading or executing specific instructions). Support for other features such as FPGA's is also available, allowing loading or any control required to drive a specific hardware device. The project uses chump to allow disassembly and line assembly. Chump also allows new architectures to be easily added without the need to recompile the system. Communication with the backend is done using two pipes/fifos using a simple set of codes. Back end communication program can be created using very little memory on the target device.
Avrora is a set of tools for programs that run on the AVR series of microcontrollers produced by Atmel. It contains a flexible framework for simulating, analyzing, and optimizing assembly programs, and provides a clean Java API and infrastructure for experimentation, profiling, and analysis.
The Intel Software Development Emulator is a functional emulator for new and upcoming instruction set extensions. The emulator is based on the Pin dynamic binary instrumentation system (and XED). It emulates the new instructions in the SSE4, AES, PCLMULQDQ, and RTM, BMI1, and BMI2 Intel AVX and AVX2 instruction set extensions. This allows developers to gain familiarity with Intel's upcoming instruction set extensions.
Cloonix is a Linux router and host simulation platform. It fully encapsulates application, host, and network l2 and l3 into a relatively easy-to-use simulation GUI. Network delay and loss characteristics can be configured per link. It provides support for running kvm or UML virtual machines configured into an arbitrary complex network configuration. It is possible to run a 12 router UML simulation on a small x86 host (a P4 with 512 MB RAM). 32- and 64-bit KVM machines are provided.
