This paper presents the experiences using a commercial full system simulation platform-Simics-in a graduate chip multiprocessors class. The Simics platform enables students and researchers to do research on computer architecture, operating systems, and hardware/software co-simulation. It provides the ability to simulate machines that are not physically available. This platform has been used in chip multiprocessors course to help graduate and undergraduate students in related areas. This course deals with both hardware and software issues in chip multiprocessors, and concludes with a team project at the end of the semester. The simulation-based approach was successful when student feedback and final projects are considered.
