Imperas releases ‘fast’ Cortex-A7 core OVP model

To meet the demand for engines that process ever heavier media loads in a variety of consumer and mobile applications, Imperas Ltd.  has release a “fast” OVP-based model of the Cortex-A7.Together with the Cortex A15 released last year, the fast model is available from the Open Virtual Platforms  website. The models can be utilized within OVP-based components, or integrated into SystemC/TLM-2.0 based virtual platforms using the native TLM-2.0 interface included with each processor model.According to Simon Davidmann, CEO of Imperas the ARM Cortex processors include capabilities, such as TrustZone and virtualization, that must be modeled accurately to ensure absolutely reliable software execution during the verification process.Imperas offers models of the ARM7, ARM9, ARM10, ARM11 and Cortex-A, Cortex-R, and Cortex-M families. The models include support for both the 32 and 16-bit instruction sets, as well as the MMU, MPU, TCM, VFP, NEON, TrustZone, virtualization and large physical address extension (LPAE) capabilities, where appropriate for the specific processor.
