About Us

Founded in 2008, Space Codesign Systems Inc. offers virtual platform technology products and services for the creation of embedded systems applications centered on ESL (Electronic System Level) design technology and hardware/software codesign methodology.

Space Codesign Systems’ technology was initially developed in the Microelectronics and Microsystems Group (GRM2) at the Polytechnique Montréal, where the SpaceStudio technology matured to become a powerful and unique front-end design tool. The pioneering HW/SW co-design technology produced by Space Codesign Systems enables designers to enjoy a higher level of abstraction and executable representation for embedded systems design.
