Composition of DEVS models in heterogenous environments requires resolutions for manifold incompatibilities including data type and time resolution mismatch. This paper proposes a solution for implementing DEVS simulations in heterogenous environments with the help of connectors in the sense of component based software engineering. Our solution involves implementing connectors as atomic models to be used in mediation of data type and time resolution mismatches. Employing atomic models as connectors allows connector composition in the style of Reo and promotes higher level of reuse in simulation construction. In this paper we describe our solution formally and present a case study to demonstrate its application.
