Imperas Will Demo New Renesas V850E PHO3 Virtual Platform at Embedded Technology 2012

OXFORD, England --(Business Wire)--

Imperas, which through Open Virtual Platforms™ (OVP™) is the de facto source for fast processor core models, announced today the OVP virtual platform of the Renesas Electronics V850E PHO3 device. This virtual platform is available today from Imperas, and will soon be available from the OVP website (www.OVPworld.org). As with all OVP models, the V850E PHO3 virtual platform is available as an open source platform, but requires the OVPsim™ simulator to run. Imperas will be demonstrating the V850E PHO3 at Embedded Technology 2012, November 14-16 in Yokohama, Japan.

Imperas will also be demonstrating the Multiprocessor/Multicore Software Development Kit (M*SDK™) at Embedded Technology 2012. M*SDK includes advanced tools for multicore software debug, test and analysis such as OS and CPU-aware tracing (instruction, function, OS task, OS event), hot spot profiling, code coverage and memory and cache analysis. These Verification, Analysis and Profiling (M*VAP™) tools utilize the patent pending binary interception technology, SlipStreamer™, which enables these analytical tools to operate without any modification or instrumentation of the software source code, i.e., the tools are completely non-intrusive. The M*VAP toolsrequire only that the OVP fast processor model be used in the virtual platform. Since OVP fast processor models work in SystemC/TLM-2.0 virtual platforms as well as OVP virtual platforms, the M*SDK tools work in both virtual platform environments. Imperas users have applied M*SDK tools in SystemC/TLM-2.0 virtual platforms with SystemC simulators from all the major simulator vendors plus the OSCI SystemC simulator.

In addition to the M*VAP tools, users of M*SDK can define their own custom tools using SlipStreamer. Imperas has been helping customers by developing templates for tools to do fault injection, protocol verification, exception analysis and functional coverage. These templates are available at no charge to M*SDK users.

"Software testing is a huge issue in automotive electronics. By providing simulation-based tools focused on software test and development, Imperas is improving the user experience and results for Renesas processors," said Martin Baker, senior manager, ecosystem and business management for the Automotive Business Unit of Renesas Electronics America. "By continuing to support the V850 processor core family and V850 devices, Imperas and OVP are helping expand the toolkit available to the Renesas automotive user community."


"Renesas users recognize the importance of virtual platforms to provide more comprehensive testing of software for embedded systems," said Simon Davidmann, Imperas CEO, and OVP founding director. "The combination of Imperas' advanced tools, and user-defined tools, with OVP fast processor models helps users take the next step in embedded system development."
