Imperas Solutions

Imperas RISC-V Simulators The Imperas ISS (Instruction Set Simulators), System Emulators, and Virtual Platforms have been developed and commercially supported for over 10 years.

The cost of creating custom hardware for electronic products has escalated to a level out of proportion to the returns on many applications. Embedded software running on efficient, low power processors not only provides a viable alternative, but presents significant functionality and development advantages to the design team. The advent of multicore devices has further improved the performance characteristics of this solution.

Adopting a modern approach to developing embedded software Modern methodologies for developing embedded software focus around much automation for developing, testing, and deployment. In the desktop software segment an approach called Continuous Integration (CI) is at the centre.

Meeting Audi’s Failsafe Standard With modern vehicles using many embedded processors, some for safety critical applications, absolutely reliable embedded software is a must.

Accelerating a Cadence Platform Integration Imperas’ processor models, including simulation and software design kit ToolMorphing™ technology, not only provides advanced capability with high-performance, but is an effective mechanism for the rapid integration of both model and tools into 3rd party platform realiz

The embedded software contained in modern electronic products has evolved dramatically in recent years along three dimensions:

As discussed in the section Why Use Virtual Platforms there are a variety of benefits that virtual platforms provide over the use of actual hardware prototypes for embedded software development.
