SAFIRE World for SAFIRE previously marketed by SOLINET,
which a specialist in ready-to-run solutions for signalling
systems. SAFIRE (previously SAFIRE-SDL) is a graphical tool chain designed for the
implementation and validation of state machines (FSMs). SAFIRE uses a graphical representation, based on the
international standards the Specification and Description Language, MSC, TTCN and ASN.1, in a
single environment covering the design, execution and
observation of both FSMs and test scenarios. Libraries are offered for standard signalling systems (ISDN,
SS7, V5, GSM, INAP, IP, etc) and a corresponding protocol analyzer. |

Soft Lab (an overseas RD department of LG Electronics Inc.) had a
Distributed and Embedded Systems group which supplied|
OSD (Object-oriented Software Development).
a Visual Environment for Software Development of real-time distributed systems based on the Specification and Description Language notation also with UML and MSC editors.
However, this work seems to have been discontinued.
|UCS - United Computer Scientists, Ltd ( http://www.ucstec.com/) briefly marketed the ezSDL tool (http://www.ucs.com.pt/ez/Products.htm - dead link) developed by ezLab for Visual Software Development of communication protocols, real-time, event-driven and embedded systems. It was claimed: Specification and Description Language and MSC graphical editors are used for system design; External code may be added; A simulator provided visual debugging; A C code generator targeted: Win32, Linux, VxWorks, QNX. The manual and a demo were available as free downloads. An evaluation version was available. This was announced in November 2004, but by May 2005 the www links had disapperared (but see links above).|
