MIPS Warrior CPUs provide industry leading feature sets, performance, area and power consumption.  Partnering with Imperas to provide models in their innovative virtual platform tools provides a huge advantage to MIPS users. These models, together with Imperas’ new Extendable Platform Kits (EPKs) that let users run high-speed simulations of MIPS-based SoCs on any suitable PC - can benefit MIPS customers and anyone developing software for MIPS platforms. It is an additional benefit to our users to enable them to use the Codescape debugger for software development on both virtual platforms and hardware platforms.

The wide support of OVP fast processor core models, together with Imperas tools for software analysis, perfectly complements the Magillem Executable Specification (X-Spec) solution. The tight integration of Imperas technology with Magillem X-Spec will help our customers to seamlessly execute their embedded Software on their Hardware specification.

High performance processor models are an important part of our virtual prototype solution. The Open Virtual Platforms library of fast processor core models, together with Imperas tools for software analysis, complement the Virtual System Platform to provide an effective solution for system and software development.

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.
