QuantumLeap Parallel Simulation using multi-core host PC gaining significant simulation speed.
A demonstration video showing the Imperas QuantumLeap accelerator on several examples on a 4 core i7-3770 host PC to gain up to 16 billion Instructions a second.The video show gains from using QuantumLeap on peripheral accelerators.It then covers booting SMP Linux on an ARM VersatileExpress virtual platform that incorporates a Cortex-A9MPx4 and shows running 4 applications in parallel under the simulated Linux and shows the QuantumLeap performance increase.The video concludes showing AMP peak performance of over 16 billion instructions per second on a Cortex-A9:
OVP is addressing key issues in software development for embedded systems. By supporting the creation of virtual platforms, OVP is enabling early software development and helping expand the ARM user community.

For our SystemC training courses, we want the attendees to focus on building SystemC models, and how to use those models. By using OVP Fast Processor Models, which work easily in SystemC virtual platforms, students do not have to worry about processor models, and are able to get the most out of our courses. The OVP models work well in our SystemC environment and also with other SystemC tools. We are excited to be able to expand our design service offerings in virtual platforms to our customers.
