Desmod – A Python based modeling environment

Pete Grayson


Discrete event simulation is a powerful tool for modeling highly dynamic systems. Python is a great language for rapid development. The open source Desmod package, based on the excellent SimPy package, provides a complete environment for modeling and simulating highly dynamic systems. Desmod aims to rival commercial modeling environments based on SystemC on features, performance, and, of course, the superior development ecosystem of Python.
