Abstract : In this document, a brief overview of the Siconos Platform is given. One of the goal is to give a flavor on a simple example of the ability of the platform to model and simulate the so-called non smooth dynamical systems (NSDS). In particular, some examples of Lagrangian mechanical systems with contact and friction or electrical circuits with ideal and piecewise linear components (diodes, MOS transistors, \ldots) are commented. Finally, the Siconos software is presented, starting from its architecture to a non exhaustive presentation of its components and functionalities. The aim of this document is not to serve as a reference guide but more as a illustrative introduction document to promote the use of the platform.
