I find Imperas tools and models invaluable for my research and my course, High Level Design of Hardware Software Systems. My students can now explore and command state-of-the-art prototyping technology for complex systems.

Using Imperas and OVP in my course on Real-Time System Programming is an immense benefit. Embedded software development is a growing need worldwide, and advanced methodologies such as Imperas delivers are required for accelerated coding and quality.

We’re excited to see Xilinx FPGAs, including the MicroBlaze cores, used in a project with such far-reaching impact.  High performance processor models, virtual platforms and software development tools, such as are available from Imperas and OVP, are critical to the quality and success of embedded software projects.

M*SDK, the OVP APIs and the OVP library of models have been a great asset to the FlexTiles project, enabling us to quickly create a virtual platform for our advanced architecture. We were able to use the Imperas technology and tools to develop multiple demonstrations of the FlexTiles architecture, including multiple hardware configurations, the Network on Chip (NoC) developed in this project and the operating system and software tools for FlexTiles.

Imperas allowed us to quickly add our own components and build the topologies which we wanted to test. We had our first demo up and running in 20 minutes, and it took us just a few days to build a reference hardware architecture based on components in the Extendable Platform Kit (EPK). Last but not least, after just a few months we could start playing with our own many-core operating system on our many-core hardware design. The ease of use of the EPK, together with excellent Imperas documentation and support, have kick-started our FlexaWare platform development.
