3 Years of OVP; ARM, MIPS Announcements

ARM Cortex-M3 Example Virtual Platform Runs Micrium ?C/OS II RTOS
Embedded software developers are just as loyal to their operating systems as to their processors. So continuing our collaboration with Micrium, we now have an example virtual platform with the ARM Cortex-M3 processor running the ?C/OS II RTOS.

Ian Johnson of ARM commented: ?ARM regards virtual platforms as a key component of any embedded software development methodology. Imperas? support of this type of methodology with both their OVP and M*SDK tools and their work with Micrium to provide a more complete solution is a good example of the high level of support the industry expects from ARM Connected Community members.?

Look for an announcement from us in the next couple of months regarding the availability of ARM Cortex-A8 and A9 models.

MIPS Relationship Moves to the Next Level
MIPS has licensed an OEM version of the OVPsim simulator to distribute to its licensees. While all 32 bit MIPS cores (MIPS32 and microMIPS instruction set architectures) are supported by OVP, not all processor cores are currently delivered by MIPS as part of their distribution. Check with MIPS for availability of the OEM product.

Art Swift of MIPS said: ?We chose Imperas and the Open Virtual Platforms technology because of the quality of the models and technology. We see the positive momentum and leadership position of OVP, and believe this is the best technology for instruction accurate simulation of our processor core models. MIPS Technologies has delivered the first OVP models to lead customers, and we look forward to expanding this program in the future.?

The formal relationship between Imperas and MIPS began nearly 2 years ago, when Imperas joined the MIPS-Verified program, and MIPS started to verify the functionality of the Imperas/OVP models of MIPS processor cores.

OVP at 3 Years
- 50+ processor core models available, developed by Imperas and by OVP users
- Over 4,000 people, from more than 1,000 different organizations, have registered on the OVP website
- Robust ecosystem of users, model developers, tool vendors, service providers and universities
- Interoperability with SystemC/TLM-2.0 virtual platforms; OVP processor models just plug in to those environments

A Request to Academic Research Groups
We are going to provide some space on the OVP website for publishing links to your work which uses OVP.
So please, when you publish or present, please send us the details of the work, as well as the link.

OVPsim Current Release
The current OVPsim release is 20110223.0 so please upgrade to this latest one.
