Imperas and Valtrix announce partnership for RISC-V Processor Verification

Valtrix

Imperas leading virtual platform simulation technology combined with Valtrix leading verification technology for rigorous RISC-V Processor test developments, verification and compliance.

RISC-V Summit, Santa Clara, Calif., December 3, 2018 — Imperas Software Ltd., the leader in virtual platforms and high-performance software simulation, today announced the partnership with Valtrix Systems for advanced RISC-V Processor test and validation. STING, the flagship product of Valtrix Systems, is a highly versatile bare-metal software tool for design verification of SoC implementations. Implemented in an architecture agnostic manner, it supports generation of constrained random, directed or graph-based portable stimulus for multiple IPs. Valtrix have integrated STING with riscvOVPsim, the free RISC-V ISS (Instruction Set Simulator) Imperas has launched to support RISC-V software and tools ecosystem development, and to validate and test RISC-V open ISA (Instruction Set Architecture) implementations. With this partnership Valtrix can configure virtual platforms as a verification reference as well as extending the RISC-V envelope model with custom instructions.

Imperas to participate on Panel at Electronica 2018

Imperas joins industry leaders for panel to discuss ‘Are open architectures the way forward?’

electronica 2018

 Imperas Software Ltd., the leader in high-performance software simulation and virtual platforms, today announced their participation on a panel event at Electronica in Munich, Germany November 13 2018 at 4pm.

Panel “Are open architectures the way forward?”

With open architectures (like RISC-V) now being more widely adopted, will this be the driver to open up the market for more flexibility and versatility in hardware designs to address rapid device deployment needs and lower volume production runs needed to serve mass personalization?

Brian Bailey of Simconductor Engineeringis considers open-source and the RISC-V ISA and discusses thr reuirement of continued industry support for it to be successful.

SemiWiki.com

The open-source RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) is attracting a lot of attention across the semiconductor industry, but its long-term success will depend on levels of cooperation never seen before in the semiconductor industry. The big question now is how committed the industry is to RISC-V’s success.
