RISC-V Summit 2021 - Demo Theatre SW talk: Porting software to RISC-V using Imperas Virtual Prototypes


While much of the focus and energy of the RISC-V adopters has so far gone into the development of the RISC-V architecture and specific cores, the real success of RISC-V is dependent upon the key software tasks for new applications, porting legacy software, and optimizing OS/RTOS ports and drivers for the wide range of RISC-V devices being built. With more custom silicon projects starting every day, virtual platforms (often called virtual prototypes) offer a viable alternative to hardware prototypes for software engineering tasks. 
This talk will highlight how simulation and virtual prototypes can be used for software development for new processors and SoCs including a demonstration with Quake running on RISC-V.
