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.
