Synopsys released version 12.06 of their Virtualizer tool set for creating virtual prototypes and Virtualizer Development Kits (VDKs) for accelerating embedded software development. Virtualizer 12.06 release makes it easier for design teams to create virtual prototypes and deploy them to software engineers in VDKs. The new Virtualizer 12.06 release is available now.
Synopsys introduced an integrated hybrid prototyping solution. The out-of-box solution features Synopsys’ Virtualizer virtual prototyping and Synopsys’ HAPS FPGA-based prototyping. By integrating the strengths of Virtualizer virtual prototyping with HAPS FPGA-based prototyping using the UMRBus physical link, Synopsys enables designers to develop fully operational SoC prototypes much faster and earlier in the design cycle, and accelerate software development and full system validation. The Synopsys hybrid prototyping solution is available now to early adopters.
Synopsys introduced their Virtualizer virtual prototyping solution. Prototypes created with Virtualizer accelerate software development schedules by up to nine months, and increase productivity by up to 5x over traditional approaches to teams performing software development, hardware/software integration, system-on-chip (SoC) verification and system validation. Virtualizer is available now. Virtualizer Development Kits (VDKs), which includes a subset of Virtualizer features, is also available now.
AdaCore launched GNATemulator emulator solution for testing embedded software applications. GNATemulator enables software developers to compile code directly for their target architecture and run it on their host platform. The tool translates the target object code to native instructions on the host. GNATemulator is based on the QEMU technology, which is a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer. The AdaCore emulator is a streamlined, low-cost alternative to time-accurate target board simulators. GNATemulator is available now.
