Running on Xilinx as Simulation

As I have no hardware, is it possible to run a multi-tasking application based on FreeRTOS with Microblaze in Simulation mode?

I’m not sure if IAR has a simulator or not for this - but it’s worth checking.  The MSP430 simulator they have is pretty good - I’ve used it on numerous occasions.

Look on .

You should normally be able to run FreeRTOS in a simulator just as any other program, but only to a point.  How far you get depends on what exactly is simulated.  Most simulators will simulate the processor core but not the peripherals.  This means the timer tick will not execute in the simulator.  As the Xilinx simulator is primarily a hardware simulator you might be lucky.
