We show end-to-end extreme adaptive optics (XAO) simulation results for EPICS (Exo-Planets Imaging Camera and Spectrograph). The impacts of telescope jitter, spiders and photon noise are analysed. In addition, the stroke demand for XAO deformable mirror (DM) is studied and wavefront sensor choice discussed. Simulation results indicate that current baseline design meets the EPICS requirements.
