We were able to easily merge the Imperas simulator into our automated workflow on our build server for both unit and integration testing.  Running our tests with the production binaries on the simulator enabled us to find bugs that were not found when the software was cross compiled to the x86 Windows environment.

OVPsim beats QEMU in fidelity in CPU simulation - its determinism and speed were pretty impressive. OVPsim configurability is a big advantage as well. We were able to configure low-level CPU features, thanks to comprehensive documentation. I was also enthusiastic about the machine description file. It was easy to connect a missing interrupt signal we needed.

We are all aware of the importance of security, especially in the IoT. Imperas, with their participation in the prpl Foundation, support for the prpl platform, and their high-performance releases, are making important contributions in this arena.

Imperas virtual platforms and models for the open RISC-V architecture will enable early software development, long before hardware is available. These RISC-V Imperas virtual platforms lower software development costs, increase quality, improve time to market, and reduce software development risks.

Nagra, part of the Kudelski Group, a global leader in digital security and convergent media solutions for the delivery of digital and interactive content stated: "At NAGRA, we have adopted the Imperas virtual platform-based software development and test tools for our application and firmware teams. The simulator performance, and the tools for software analysis, have added significant value to our daily Agile Continuous Integration (CI) methodology. Our view is that software simulation is mandatory to reach metrics required for high quality secured products."

With software now a key deliverable in semiconductor products, our customers increasingly need to develop hardware and software in parallel to hit ever-decreasing market windows, and virtual platforms are a key technique in achieving that. Our partnership with Imperas thus allows T&VS to enhance the solutions we can offer to the market. I am particularly excited by the Imperas fault injection capability which is a key verification technique in the growing safety markets such as automotive.

The Imperas virtual platform environment is amazingly easy to use. Starting with the Imperas RH850F1H Extendable Platform Kit, we were able to get eMCOS running in our custom RH850 virtual platform in only 2 weeks.  Also, the simulation performance is even faster than real time. This combination provides our customers with new tools to accelerate software development and improve product quality.

Imperas tools and models provide us with enhanced capabilities to pursue research we could not otherwise achieve with significantly less upfront development effort.  The virtual platforms allow us to rapidly explore state-of-the-art prototypes and bridges the gap between hardware and software development.

We have seen that virtual platform based methodology can accelerate IoT product development. Imperas OVP models combined with the Imperas embedded software tools, supported by Coontec’s experienced staff, is a great solution for the Korean market.
