Imperas exhibit at Renesas DevCon 2012 and present on Modelling Microcontrollers and Software Development

Imperas will be presenting papers on OVP, Modelling Microcontrollers, and using processor models for Software Development at California Renesas show.

Renesas Devcon content ranges from microcontroller details to full hardware systems, and from operating systems to applications to tools and methodology to implement Renesas MCU based systems.

Imperas at Renesas Devcon:  Simon Davidmann is on a panel, Larry Lapides is presenting a paper, and Imperas will have a booth in the exhibits.

Simulation: Expert Insights Into Modelling Microcontrollers; panel discussion including Simon Davidmann, Wednesday October 24, 2:45pm

Using Processor Models for Software Development and Validation, Larry Lapides, Tuesday October 23, 5:15pm

Paper Abstract:

As automotive electronics systems get more complex, quality becomes a much bigger issue.  Solving the quality issue means improved testing methodologies, both for testing of individual ECUs, as well as systems involving multiple ECUs.  Virtual platforms (software simulation) provide one approach, not only for basic software testing but also adding in more advanced test and analysis capabilities like code coverage, profiling, memory analysis, fault injection and more.

This presentation will discuss the construction of very high performance (hundreds of millions of instructions per second) instruction accurate virtual platforms, and will present advanced test and analytical capabilities of virtual platforms.  Examples will be shown for using virtual platforms with Simulink/Matlab, memory analysis for a tire pressure sensor, in depth analysis of exception handling and a user-defined tool for fault injection testing.

Demonstrations at show

Imperas will be demonstrating solutions for software verification, analysis and profiling, ranging from code coverage and profiling to OS context switching analysis and fault injection, at our booth in the exhibit area, Monday, October 22,  5:30 – 9:00pm, and Tuesday, October 23,  6:00 – 9:00pm.
