We have been using OVP for embedded software development and system bring up. We are also Xilinx MicroBlaze users, and are excited to be able to use these technologies together to enable us to complete our projects faster and with fewer bugs.

Japan is an exciting market for embedded software, and Imperas is addressing the most critical issue, software development. The combination of their Open Virtual Platforms, especially the OVP Fast Processor Models, and the Imperas Multicore/Multiprocessor Software Development Kit (M*SDK), with its advanced tools for embedded software verification, analysis and debug, is a great value to bring to software developers in Japan.

Imperas with its OVP Fast Processor Models is addressing key issues in software development for embedded systems. We are happy to work with Imperas to ensure that high quality models are easily available to our worldwide customers, helping them to develop and test software faster and more easily using virtual platforms.

In the automotive electronics industry we always need to do more testing of our embedded systems software. Finding that the simulation performance of the Imperas/OVP V850 model was 50 times faster than our previous solution opens up new possibilities for us in software testing, and enables us to increase our test coverage and product reliability.

For our SystemC training courses, we want the attendees to focus on building SystemC models, and how to use those models. By using OVP Fast Processor Models, which work easily in SystemC virtual platforms, students do not have to worry about processor models, and are able to get the most out of our courses. The OVP models work well in our SystemC environment and also with other SystemC tools. We are excited to be able to expand our design service offerings in virtual platforms to our customers.
