Yakindu Statechart Tools (SCT) is an Open-Source-Tool[1] for the specification and development of reactive, event-driven systems with the help of state machines. It consists of an easy-to-use tool for graphical editing and provides validation, simulation and code generators for different target platforms. The users come from both the industrial and academic sectors.

Functionality[edit]

The main features of Yakindu Statechart tools are:

  • smart combination of textual and graphical modeling
  • syntactic and semantic validation of the state machines
  • executable models via the simulation engine
  • code generators for Java, C and C++

History[edit]

The first version of Yakindu Statechart Tools was released in 2008 as part of the research project MDA for Embedded.[2] In this research project, model-based development processes for the development of embedded systems based on the Eclipse project were developed. Since mid-2010 the Yakindu-Team, consisting mainly of employees of the company itemis AG, has been working on Version 2.0. The first official version was released together with Eclipse version Juno.
