Published by Scilab Enterprises, Xcos is a hybrid dynamic systems modeler and simulator. Distributed with Scilab, Xcos is an efficient solution for industrial and academics needs. Xcos is a graphical editor for Scicos to design hybrid dynamical system models. Models can be designed, loaded, saved, compiled and simulated.

Xcos is distributed freely with Scilab under CeCILL license (GPL compatible).
