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.
