Imperas provides virtual prototype software solutions

Imperas Software Ltd., the provider of high-performance software simulation and virtual platforms, and Andes Technology Corporation, have announced their partnership to provide Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) models, virtual platforms and software solutions for Andes next-generation processors, based on the RISC-V architecture, the companies said.

The momentum for RISC-V is accelerating, and Andes is the first established CPU intellectual property (IP) vendor to offer a RISC-V processor for licensing, delivering the V5 AndesCoreTM N25 and NX25 IPs. Andes designs low-power CPU cores for a full range of embedded electronics products, including low-cost embedded applications, data centers, connected, smart and green applications, machine-learning accelerators, communications, security, IoT, and consumer applications.

Imperas is the provider of RISC-V processor models. Imperas models and virtual prototype solutions include both the NX25 64-bit and N25 32-bit cores, and are available now from Imperas and the Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) website. The AndeStarTM V5 is the superset of RISC-V instruction set, whose baseline comprises roughly 60 instructions, with Andes-specific performance enhancement extensions.

Andes Technology Corporation was founded in Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan in 2005 to develop innovative high-performance/low-power 32-bit/64-bit processor cores and its associated development environment to serve worldwide rapidly-growing embedded system applications.
