Ptolemy is a software environment for simulating, prototyping, and synthesizing heterogeneous systems. For studying network, parallel, and distributed systems, a Ptolemy Code Generation in C (CGC) domain target using Active Messages (AM) on a Network of Workstations (NOW) is a valuable tool. Active messages provide a low-overhead, portable communications protocol that can take advantage of performance improvements in the underlying network. A NOW pro vides a parallel platform to study Ptolemy simulations on. This project implements a NOW AM target for Ptolemy's CGC domain and explores the issues involved in creating appropriate NOW Ptolemy systems.
