Optional Upgrades to the Imperas Instruction Set Simulator (ISS)

Imperas produces a range of products that can be layered on the ISS:

QuantumLeap MPonMP (MultiProcessor target on MultiProcessor host) acceleration software which adds to the already industry leading performance of the ISS.  QuantumLeap accelerates simulation by taking advantage of the multiple x86/x64 cores on the host PC, which is especially advantageous for multi-core processors such as the ARM Cortex-A53MPx4 or the Imagination/MIPS proAptiv. QuantumLeap simulates in parallel what other tools can only do serially and in doing so is typically 6-15x faster than other commercial simulators. Used with the ISS, QuantumLeap provides parallel simulation of the single instance of the CPU cluster.

Virtual Platform Development and Simulation solution (DEV) provides an extension to the ISS allowing the building of peripheral components and platforms to enable fast simulation of complete systems running Operating Systems (OS) and RTOS.

Multi-core Software Development Kit (M*SDK) provides the development of peripheral device models and virtual platforms using many heterogeneous or homogenous processors. M*SDK includes the Imperas Multi-Processor Debugger (MPD), and the very flexible Imperas Verification, Analysis, and Profiling (VAP) tools for embedded software development, debug and test.

Extendable Platform Kits (EPKs) are platforms built by Imperas that can be used out-of-the-box for software development. They include the CPU and main peripherals to enable full Operating Systems (OS) and RTOS to run. EPKs range from simple ones like the Atmel AT91SAM7 using an ARM7DTMI core and UART that boots ucLinux all the way to the ARMv8 Cortex-A57MPx4 Versatile Express that boots Linaro Linux. Many of the platforms include the Imperas virtualized UART, Ethernet, and USB models which not only run in simulation, but also connect to the real world allowing, for example a simulated browser to access the real internet, or the simulator to communicate with a real USB memory stick plugged into the host PC.

The Imperas ISS is available for free evaluation – please contact Imperas Software.
