University Usage, ARM Models, New Videos, OS Bring-up, and News

University Usage of OVP and Imperas Tools

Last week we announced expanded university usage of the OVP models and OVP and Imperas tools to address embedded systems research and teaching needs. The research cited in the announcement includes work on extending OVPsim for heterogeneous multiprocessor systems, power estimation, system/software optimization on NoC-based SoCs, automating the virtual platform process, and using virtual platforms for systems with mixed criticality.

Imperas Fast Processor Models of ARM Cores

Imperas recently announced the release of Open Virtual Platforms™ (OVP™) Fast Processor Models for popular ARM cores to accelerate embedded software development for multi-core ARM-based designs. New models include: Cortex-A17, Cortex-M0, Cortex-M0+, and Cortex-M1. Also announced are changes to the terms of licensing of the OVP ARM Models.

New Extendable Platform Kits™ (EPKs™) of ARM-based devices are available from Imperas, working together with the M*SDK™ tools, to help accelerate embedded software development, debug and test. EPKs are virtual platforms (simulation models), including processor models plus peripheral models necessary to boot an operating system (OS) or run bare metal applications. The platform and peripheral models included in the EPKs are open source, so that users can easily add new models to the platform as well as modify the existing peripheral models. The example OS and/or applications are also included.

OS bring up using virtual platforms on Imagination Technologies blog site

On a recent blog on the Imagination Technologies website, Larry Lapides, VP of sales at Imperas, discusses OS bring up on MIPS processors using virtual platforms. "Linux has become the general purpose operating system of choice for embedded systems, and is almost always supported for high end SoCs developed by semiconductor vendors. These SoCs now have multicore processors, and run symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) Linux. Most vendors start with the MIPS Linux distribution, then customize it for the specific SoC (requiring device tree changes), including the necessary drivers for the peripherals on the SoC as well as supporting other customizations and unique features. While the MIPS Linux distribution is a great starting point, that does not make customization and bring up an easy task. To put it another way: Just because you get to the Linux prompt doesn't mean everything is working."

Fish Fry, from EE Journal with Simon Davidmann

Amelia Dalton of EE Journal interviewed Simon Davidmann on new trends in embedded software development with virtual platforms. "In this week’s Fish Fry, we take a closer look at virtual platform-based methodology for embedded software development with Simon Davidmann (CEO - Imperas).” Simon and Amelia discuss the advantages of Open Virtual Platforms and how virtual platforms can speed up your design process.
