OVP is addressing key issues in software development for embedded systems. By supporting the creation of virtual platforms, OVP is enabling early software development and helping expand the ARM user community.

We are delighted to be working with Imperas to deliver the fastest Instruction Accurate (IA) simulation solution for our many MIPS partners. We have been impressed how Imperas’ simulation technology significantly outperforms other commonly-used solutions. Faster simulation results in more tests being run, and therefore higher quality software being developed - and that is good news for our extensive MIPS ecosystem community.  Since acquiring MIPS, Imagination has committed to working more closely with innovative partners like Imperas to deliver superior CPU modelling solutions. As a result, we are confident our MIPS licensees and many software ecosystem partners will have access to the best tools in the industry, enabling them to create the best possible software and products.

We chose Imperas and the Open Virtual Platform technology because of the quality of the models and technology.  We see the positive momentum and leadership position of OVP, and believe this is the best technology for instruction accurate simulation of processor core models.

Imperas is launching some very interesting approaches to processor modeling and software testing.  Historically processor models have been used in relatively small numbers, despite their enormous benefits. The Imperas business model has the potential to make processor modeling an affordable approach used widely across the industry.

Embedded software and systems are getting more complex, while at the same time schedules are getting shorter and test requirements larger. Imperas’ virtual platform based products have demonstrated both technical and business success in Japan, and we are excited to help accelerate that growth.  In particular, M*SDK, with its advance tools for embedded software verification, analysis and debug, including CPU- and OS-aware capabilities, brings significant value to developers in Japan.
