FlexTiles, Recore, MIPS models, QuantumLeap

Imperas Technology Used for FlexTiles Program

A virtual platform for the FlexTiles adaptive multicore SoC program is now available, based on Imperas and OVP simulators and models. The FlexTiles platform is a self-adaptive heterogeneous multicore 3D System-on-Chip (SoC) architecture developed by a consortium of universities, research institutes and commercial companies. Imperas simulation and OVP models were selected because of superior performance and the availability of open source models. The project successfully used the OVP technologies to create a many-core virtual platform, which is available at no cost from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), and from the OVP Library page for KIT.

Recore Systems Selected Imperas Virtual Platform Software Development Tools

The new Recore FlexaWare platform is a many-core embedded system with three closely connected components: many-core hardware, a runtime (many-core) OS, and a software development environment. As the platform was built from the ground up, it was imperative to test important design concepts immediately in a simulation environment, to confirm that they function as expected. Since time to market was crucial, Recore selected Imperas for design space exploration as well as software development and test because of the nature of the components already on offer, and started quickly by using an Imperas Extendable Platform Kit (EPK).

Fast Processor Models of MIPS Warrior Cores Released by Imperas and OVP

Using MIPS processors in your development? Imperas has released Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) Fast Processor Models for the MIPS Warrior P-class and M-class processors from Imagination Technologies. Example virtual platforms are provided, as well as support for the cores in the Imperas M*SDK advanced software development tools. In addition, the Imperas M*SDK and M*DEV products support the use of the Imagination Codescape Debugger for embedded software debug and development. Read more.

Imperas Presented QuantumLeap - Parallel Simulation Acceleration - at the Embedded World Conference in Nuremberg, Germany

The embedded world Exhibition and Conference is the worlds largest platform for embedded-system technologies. Larry Lapides, Imperas Vice President of Sales, delivered a paper on QuantumLeap, the Imperas parallel simulation performance accelerator that leverages a new synchronization algorithm to provide the fastest virtual platform software execution speed available. The execution performance of this new technology has been measured on average at 15 times faster than the nearest commercial solution using standard benchmarks. Furthermore, QuantumLeap provides a transparent use model, with no change required to the software-under-test, the virtual platform models or the development environment, while ensuring fully deterministic simulation execution.
