Having partnered with the Wave Computing MIPS engineering team and IP customers over the past decade, our model and simulation technology has enabled MIPS-based devices to be deployed across a broad range of embedded markets.This no-cost MIPSOpenOVPsim instruction set simulator is an ideal start for developers looking to explore the potential of various SoC designs through Wave Computing’s MIPS Open program.

The Imperas simulation and modeling technology has been a reliable and high-quality testing model used internally by the MIPS engineering team for many years. We are delighted to partner with Imperas to make this industrial-grade simulation technology available to support the MIPS Open program and further the momentum around open hardware development.

Imperas solutions for early software development have never been more appropriate with development schedules more critical than ever. We believe that simulation-based verification is fast becoming an essential requirement in complex SoCs, and together with advanced debug and analysis tools for many-core and heterogeneous designs will greatly reduce development schedules for next generation devices.

Test and verification of RISC-V open ISA cores is the most demanding challenge for processor developers today. By partnering with Imperas and using the OVP virtual library of platforms we can offer customers a complete solution across all aspects of RISC-V processor verification, test and compliance.

SiFive’s Core Designer allows our customers to customize our broad portfolio of RISC-V Core IP for their particular application. The donation of a robust, commercial-quality simulator such as riscvOVPsim™ will enable them to adopt RISC-V even faster. This is the level of close industry collaboration that will drive the successful adoption of RISC-V.
