Five Minutes With... - Embedded Computing Design - Larry Lapides

Five Minutes With… Larry Lapides, vice president, Imperas

The best CPU architecture in the world won’t do you much good if the ecosystem falls flat.

RISC-V, the new kid on the block when it comes to instruction-set architectures (ISAs), is up against that stumbling block right now - it needs tools to not just survive, but to thrive.

In this week's Five Minutes with…discussion, Rich Nass of Embedded Computing Design and Larry Lapides, VP of Imperas talked about the present and future of the RISC-V ecosystem  ... click here to read more and listen to the audio interview.

Bulls, Bears and Bunnies: The 6th RISC-V Workshop in Shanghai

embedded computing design

The 6th RISC-V Workshop was held May 8-11 in Shanghai.   RISC-V is, of course, the open-source processor architecture invented and introduced by the University of California, Berkeley in 2014. The previous workshop, held last November in Silicon Valley, attracted around 350 participants; this workshop about the same.

The opening statement of the Imperas presentation at the workshop was "The size of the RISC-V market share will depend more on the software ecosystem than on specifics of RISC-V implementations."  The meat of the presentation focused on modern embedded software development methodology, specifically on Continuous Integration Continuous Test (CI / CT) subset of the Agile methodology.

New Open Virtual Platforms Processor Models for ARM, Imagination Technologies, RISC-V and Renesas Accelerate Software Development

Latest OVP Models and Virtual Prototype Software Release with iGen, Available Now

Oxford, United Kingdom, May 23, 2017 - Imperas Software Ltd., the leader in high-performance software simulation, today announced the availability of new Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) models for ARM, Imagination Technologies, RISC-V and Renesas processors, along with a new OVPsim software release including the iGen modeling tool.

For embedded software and hardware developers, virtual platforms are increasingly important, especially for multi-core designs. These new OVP library models, for ARM’s ARMv8.1 architecture for the Cortex-A family, Imagination Technologies MIPS I6400, Renesas RH850, and RISC-V, extend Imperas’ leadership in virtual prototyping. OVP models, APIs and the OVPsim virtual platform simulator support development and customization of instruction-accurate platforms for SoCs and larger systems for software development, debug and test.
