SimGate: Full-System, Cycle-Close Simulation of the Stargate Sensor Network Intermediate Node
Ye Wen, Selim Gurun, Navraj Chohan, Rich Wolski, and Chandra Krintz
We present SimGate -- a full-system
simulator for the Stargate intermediate-level, resource-constrained,
sensor network device. We empirically evaluate the accuracy and
performance of the system in isolation as well as coupled with simulated
Mica2 motes. Our system is functionally correct and
achieves accurate cycle estimation (i.e. cycle-close).
Moreover, the overhead of simulated execution is modest with respect to
previously published work.
