Riviera-IPT with ARM is a new solution for verification of ARM core-based embedded systems. It combines HDL simulator and system software compiler/debugger with hardware accelerator board to enable verification speeds significantly higher than pure simulation solutions. Acceleration is achieved without compromising debugging capabilities, allowing equally efficient investigation of both system hardware and system software issues in one, convenient environment.
