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.

We are delighted to be working with Imperas to deliver a high-performance Instruction Accurate (IA) simulation solution for our many MIPS partners. The performance and capability of the system enables our customers to rapidly produce high-quality code, using features such as Imperas' OVP processor models and M*SDK. This is a clear benefit when facing tight production schedules.

Given the wide variety of customer applications for our SoC FPGAs, our software stacks require rigorous and comprehensive testing.  Imperas' M*SDK has proven to be an outstanding environment for the validation and analysis of operating systems, drivers and firmware. Verification using the Imperas solution not only accelerates software bug discovery, but also provides a rapid understanding of the root cause of problems.

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.
