Model reuse and interoperability are cost and effort saving solutions for the simulation-driven development of embedded real-time systems. Different embedded systems share the same components (e.g. motors, sensors, actuators, controllers, etc), while and remodeling them is costly in terms of time and effort. Instead, by combining different existing models, developers can improve productivity. To do so, we use here present a generic lightweight interface for message transfers between DEVS models running on different DEVS-based tools. The idea is to have allow defininga component-based models whose to becomponents can be deployed on different tools collaborating in real-time. The components work autonomously, as separate DEVS models, and exchange messages at the input-output level over a network infrastructure. We show present a proof of concept implementation in which we interfaced ECD++ and PowerDEVS, tow DEVS-based tools.
