Imperas virtual platforms and models for the open RISC-V architecture will enable early software development, long before hardware is available. These RISC-V Imperas virtual platforms lower software development costs, increase quality, improve time to market, and reduce software development risks.

Virtual platforms are moving into the mainstream of embedded software flows.  Imperas tools and models lead the market, and adding distribution to our relationship enables us to provide complete and comprehensive solutions to our customers.

Nagra, part of the Kudelski Group, a global leader in digital security and convergent media solutions for the delivery of digital and interactive content stated: "At NAGRA, we have adopted the Imperas virtual platform-based software development and test tools for our application and firmware teams. The simulator performance, and the tools for software analysis, have added significant value to our daily Agile Continuous Integration (CI) methodology. Our view is that software simulation is mandatory to reach metrics required for high quality secured products."

With software now a key deliverable in semiconductor products, our customers increasingly need to develop hardware and software in parallel to hit ever-decreasing market windows, and virtual platforms are a key technique in achieving that. Our partnership with Imperas thus allows T&VS to enhance the solutions we can offer to the market. I am particularly excited by the Imperas fault injection capability which is a key verification technique in the growing safety markets such as automotive.

The Imperas virtual platform environment is amazingly easy to use. Starting with the Imperas RH850F1H Extendable Platform Kit, we were able to get eMCOS running in our custom RH850 virtual platform in only 2 weeks.  Also, the simulation performance is even faster than real time. This combination provides our customers with new tools to accelerate software development and improve product quality.
