Imperas Virtual Platform Solutions at ARM TechCon 2017

Imperas Accelerates Software Development, Debug and Test for ARM-Based Embedded Systems; Participates in Software Security Panel

ARM Techcon

Oxford, United Kingdom, October 10th, 2017 - Imperas Software Ltd., the leader in high-performance software simulation and virtual platforms, will exhibit at the 2017 ARM TechCon and also participate in an embedded software panel discussion focused on security: "Hypervisors:  A Real Trend in Embedded, or Just Hype?"

Imperas invites attendees to register for a demonstration of Imperas embedded software development, debug and test solutions for ARM-based systems.

Demo Highlights:

  • Solutions for custom/proprietary processor modeling, early software development and comprehensive software testing.  Use cases include porting and bring-up of operating systems and validation of secure software and architectures. See advanced software analysis with Imperas OS-aware verification, analysis and profiling (VAP) tools, code coverage capabilities, memory monitoring, and fault simulation.
  • Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) models and platforms for the full line of ARM processors, including Cortex-A, R and M families, ARM big.LITTLE architecture and multi-cluster ARMv8 architectures. See Linux booting on various Cortex-A platforms and RTOS booting on Cortex-M platforms.

Panel: Hypervisors:  A Real Trend in Embedded, or Just Hype?

  • Abstract: Security and functional safety are two key elements of embedded system development, and increasingly system architects are looking at solutions at the point where software touches the hardware.  Processor architecture changes such as hardware virtualization extensions and TrustZone, and software changes in hypervisors and real time operating systems (RTOSs) take advantage of these architectural features.  What are the real differences in these hardware and software technical innovations?  For processors, how do hardware virtualization extensions compare with TrustZone for use for security and safety?  For resource management, safety and security, how do new hypervisor offerings stack up to the established technology of RTOS?  Are hypervisors a real trend in embedded systems or just hype? 
  • Moderator: Brian Bailey of Semiconductor Engineering.
  • Participants:
    • Chris Turner, ARM, product marketing manager for Cortex-R family processors
    • Simon Davidmann, Imperas Software, founder and CEO
    • Cesare Garlati, prpl Foundation, chief security officer
    • Jack Greenbaum, Green Hills Software, director of engineering, advanced products.

When: Conference: October 24-26, 2017. Expo: October 25 and 26, 2017. Panel session Wednesday, October 25, 10:30am - 11:20am.

Where: Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA. Imperas booth is #421 in the exhibition area.
