Dear OVP Forum Member,

Update #3

Thank you for your continued interest in Open Virtual Platforms.

We have been working hard for you recently and it has been a while since we sent you an update email.

Since the last update we have been adding new features to the simulator and more models to the library.
One of the key additions is the native support within OVP for the OSCI SystemC TLM2.0 transaction level modeling capability.
We have added two new pages on the TLM2.0 capabilities of OVP - technology and downloads, and we have added some specific demos so you can just click and go and see the speed and capabilities of this new offering. This new technology enables you to take any OVP model including the ultra fast CPU models that run upto 1,000 MIPS, and use it in your existing TLM2.0 simulations - with no compromise. There is new documentation and examples of how to do this - there are also several quotes from key TLM2.0 adopters about this usefulness of this new OVP offering. Have a look at the videos explaining the technology - these are available on the download page.

There in many enhancements to the different APIs making it easier to model processors and platforms. Also full documentation is now available for the use of OVP models in C++ platforms. There have also been improvements to cache modeling, components in the MIPS Malta platforms, and more examples.

Working closely with MIPS Technologies we have now completed work on the MIPS34K multicore CPU and the DSP instructions and we are just about to put up on the www.ovpworld.org website a multicore MIPS based platform that boots multicore Linux (and you get two penguins in the boot screen....) - when this is up you will be able to download and explore this platform.

We are also aware of other processor models soon to be on the site including a first cut at openSPARC.

So please do come back and visit, have a look at the new technology, catch up with items on the forum, and ask any questions you have.

Thank you for your support and interest
