RISC-V Gains a Software Development Solution from Imperas

Imperas Joins RISC-V Foundation: Virtual Platforms and Models Now Available, Demonstrations at the 6th RISC-V Workshop in Shanghai, China and the 2017 Design Automation Conference

Oxford, United Kingdom, April 27, 2017 - Imperas Software Ltd., the leader in high-performance software simulation and virtual platforms, today announced their membership in the RISC-V Foundation, along with Imperas virtual platform and model support for the RISC-V architecture, available now. Imperas will demonstrate these embedded software development solutions at the 6th RISC-V Workshop in Shanghai, China May 8-11, 2017 and also at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) 2017 in Austin, Texas June 18-22, 2017.

The RISC-V Foundation drives the adoption of the new RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA), set to become a standard open architecture for industry implementations, and directs its future development. The RISC-V ISA was originally developed in the Computer Science Division of the EECS Department at the University of California, Berkeley.

Imperas Paper at TVS DVClub 2016 Software Verification for Low Power Safety Critical Systems

<b>Abstract</b>:
<p>In November 2016, Simon Davidmann of Imperas gave a talk on how Imperas technology is being used for Timing Analysis, Power Analysis and Fault Simulation
to assist with Software Verification. Here are the slides. The talk was split into two sections.</p>
<p>The first section covers software verification for embedded systems and provides an overview of the challenges of many processors
in current embedded systems. It leads into the requirements for software verification and introduces specific embedded software development issues. It then
explains using simulation / virtual platforms and advanced tools to make embedded software development easier, quicker, and more affordable.</p>
<p>There are explanations of how simulation can be used with continuous integration and other modern software development practices.</p>
<p>The second section of the talk introduces the issues related to low power and how to use simulation to get a handle on the affects of software on low power design.
</p>
<p>Imperas is collaborating with several institutes and universities around the world and these collaborations are explored.</p>
<p>The use of Imperas Instruction Accurate simulation used for Timing Analysis, Power Analysis and Fault Simulation are discussed with examples and case studies.</p>
