The Challenge of Systemic Complexity - EE Journal - Amelia Dalton

Simulation Models for Embedded Software and Smart Monitor IP Blocks

Multi-faceted Challenges of Embedded Software Development

We’re tackling the multi-faceted challenges of embedded software development in this week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry.

Amelia Dalton of Electronic Engineering Journal takes a closer look at how debug environments can make all the difference in complex designs and why the RISC-V architecture is gaining traction. Simon Davidmann (CEO - Imperas) and Rupert Baines (CEO – UltraSoC) chat with Amelia about common debug environments for embedded software development for simulation and hardware.

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


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.

UltraSoC embedded analytics and Imperas virtual platforms combine to enhance multicore development and debug


Advanced debug environment for multicore processor designs used for both hardware and simulation

Cambridge, UK –21 June 2018 / DAC, San Francisco

UltraSoC and Imperas today announced a wide-ranging partnership that will provide developers of multicore systems on chip (SoCs) with a powerful combination of embedded analytics and virtual platform technologies. Under the terms of the agreement, UltraSoC will incorporate key elements of Imperas’ development environment into its tools offering, giving designers a unified system-level pre- and post-silicon development flow, dramatically reducing time-to-revenue and overall development costs.

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...
