We’re excited to see Xilinx FPGAs, including the MicroBlaze cores, used in a project with such far-reaching impact. High performance processor models, virtual platforms and software development tools, such as are available from Imperas and OVP, are critical to the quality and success of embedded software projects.
Shlomit Weiss, Senior VP of Silicon Engineering
We have selected Imperas simulation tools and RISC-V models for our design verification flow because of the quality of the models and the ease of use of the Imperas environment.
Imperas reference model of the complete RISC-V specification, the ability to add our custom instructions to the model and their experience with processor RTL DV flows were also important to our decision.
