Andes Certifies Imperas Models and Simulator as a Reference for Andes RISC-V Cores

Andes

Imperas Virtual Platform, Software Simulator and Models for AndesCore N25 and NX25 Processors
Now Certified as a Reference by Andes Technology Corp.

Oxford, United Kingdom, June 21, 2018 — Imperas Software Ltd., the leader in virtual platforms and high-performance software simulation, and Andes Technology Corporation, the prominent CPU IP provider, today announced that Andes has certified the Open Virtual Platforms™ (OVP™) instruction-accurate models and virtual platforms of the AndesCore™ N25 and NX25 IP processors. This rigorous certification program by Andes involves simulation and testing to their highest standard of accuracy, using a variety of real-world test cases and proprietary methods. N25 and NX25 are the AndeStar™ V5 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, based on the RISC-V technologies.

Mars, methodologies, and mastery of embedded development

 

In the recent edition of Military Embedded Systems, Larry Lapides of Imperas, gives insights into work at JPL in the 70s and was there when the Viking landed on Mars. He writes about semiconductors, design teams, software releases, and simulation... and of course safety, securityand extra-functional features...

New MIPS I7200 Processor Core Delivers Unmatched Performance and Efficiency For Advanced LTE/5G Communications And Networking IC Designs

MIPS

Highly efficient parallel processing, fast response to real-time events, and 50% performance gains position the I7200 as the core of choice for high performance embedded applications

Santa Clara, Calif. – May 1st, 2018  MIPS, provider of the widely used MIPS processor architecture and IP cores for licensing, today announced the I7200 multi-threaded multi-core processor, a new high performance licensable IP core in their midrange 32-bit product lineup. Class-leading efficiency is essential to power sensitive applications such as the high bandwidth modem subsystems in Advanced LTE Pro and upcoming 5G smartphone SoCs, as well as networking ICs, and other applications. The I7200 delivers 50% higher performance in less than 20% area increase than the previous generation from MIPS.

Imperas and Andes Extend Partnership, Delivering Models and Virtual Platforms for Andes RISC-V Cores with New AndeStar V5m Extensions

Andes

AndeStar V5m Extensions for AndesCore N25 and NX25 Processors Now Supported by Imperas Virtual Platform Software Solutions and Models

Oxford, United Kingdom, May 1, 2018 — Imperas Software Ltd., the leader in virtual platforms and high-performance software simulation, and Andes Technology Corporation, today announced Open Virtual Platforms™ (OVP™) models and virtual platform support for powerful new extensions in the AndesCore™ N25 and NX25 IP processors, which are AndeStar™ V5 32-bit and 64-bit architectures based on the RISC-V technologies.

Building on the Imperas and Andes partnership to support Andes’ RISC-V cores announced in November 2017, the new Imperas reference models support the Andes AndeStar™ V5m extensions.

Imperas is the leading provider of RISC-V processor models and virtual prototype solutions, including both of the Andes N25 32-bit and NX25 64-bit cores. The new Andes models, with extensions, are available now from Imperas and the Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) website.
