Overview:

Software development cycles for embedded systems can be delayed waiting for expensive development hardware. Remaining competitive in today’s market requires fast turn-around of fully-featured software that has been developed on a fully validated system

With ARM Fast Models, software development can begin prior to silicon availability. These extensively validated programmer’s view models provide access to ARM-based systems suitable for early software development. Used in conjunction with ARM Profiler and RealView and DS-5 Debuggers, the Fast Models can help developers debug, analyze, and optimize their applications throughout the development cycle.

Features of ARM Fast Models:

  • Run at speeds comparable to actual hardware for fast software execution and debug
  • Operating system-agnostic: Boot any OS such as Linux, Windows Embedded CE, and Symbian OS in seconds
  • Functionally accurate ARM Instruction Set Simulator, fully validated against ARM CPU designs
  • Simulation of advanced ARM technologies such as TrustZoneā„¢ NEON and VFP
  • Modeling of system peripherals such as Ethernet, LCD, keyboard and mouse

Attend this session to learn:

  • Virtual Platforms provide a solution for software development independent of hardware
  • Fast Models from ARM offers high-quality programmer’s view models
  • Fast Models are aligned with the IP Design Flow and ensure models are available when they are most needed, early in the design process.
