Universities Use Imperas Tools to Address Embedded Systems Research and Teaching Needs

Imperas Provides Free Access to Open Virtual Platforms Models and Imperas Software Development, Debug and Test Tools

Oxford, United Kingdom, August 20, 2015 - Imperas today announced the latest results and participation in the Imperas University Program.  The worldwide Imperas University Program was created to inspire and support the next generation of technologists and innovators. It grants academic and research institutions access to the tools and technology needed to prepare students to meet difficult challenges across embedded software, from development and test, to quality and standards compliance, to security and IoT. Through this program, Imperas software reaches thousands of students and professors worldwide every year. Benefits of membership in the program include access to Imperas virtual platform software, technical support, and more.

The Imperas University Program encourages participation in the embedded systems community in three ways:  use on research projects, use in the classroom, and sharing of virtual platform models through the Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) Library. 

Recent projects, presentations and publications by research groups include:

Design and Verification Need a Closer Relationship - Chip Design Magazine - Gabe Moretti

In this article, Gabe Moretti is challenging us to move Design and Verification closer. Design and Verification are often mentioned in the same sentence but too often they remain disciplines kept apart from each other. The article talks about EDA but brings in the complexity of modern systems including so much software.

There are interesting views from Synopsys and Oski Technology, and Larry Lapides from Imperas discusses the challenge and outlines observations on how developing embedded software will change.

Imperas Exhibits at the 2015 ARM TechCon

Imperas Shows Virtual Platforms for Software Development and Test

Imperas Software Ltd., the leader in high-performance software simulation, today announced their participation in the 2015 ARM TechCon and invites attendees to register for a demonstration of Imperas embedded software development, debug and test solutions for ARM-based designs.

As the chasm between hardware engineers and software developers yields to a more integrated and collaborative design environment, these communities now work synergistically to accelerate time to market and optimize their designs utilizing both hardware and software. ARM TechCon 2015 is designed to facilitate this collaboration by connecting the hardware and software communities in one event.

See Imperas virtual platform based embedded software debug, analysis and verification demos of the full line of Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) models of ARM processors, including Cortex-A, M and R families, at the Imperas booth #520 in the conference exhibition area. Expo hours are Wednesday, November 11, 2015 from 11:00am - 6:30pm, and Thursday, November 12, 2015 from 11:00am - 6:30pm.
