UltraSoC and Imperas combine to enhance multicore development and debug

UltraSoC and Imperas have announced a wide-ranging partnership that will provide developers of multicore systems on chip (SoCs) with a combination of embedded analytics and virtual platform technologies.

Under the terms of the agreement, UltraSoC will incorporate key elements of Imperas’ development environment into its tools offering, giving designers a unified system-level pre- and post-silicon development flow, dramatically reducing time-to-revenue and overall development costs.

UltraSoC provides on-chip monitoring, analytics and debug technology, via a combination of semiconductor IP and associated software. Imperas’ work with virtual platforms allows software developers to work much earlier on SoC projects, and provides debug tools that give full visibility of the behaviour of the entire system.

By combining their offerings both companies will be able to offer a powerful integrated design flow with a common software debug environment that gives a smooth transition as a project develops.

“Working with Imperas allows us to offer multicore designers a commercial-grade, time-saving and ultimately cost-effective platform to develop and launch industry-leading SoC designs,” said Rupert Baines, CEO of UltraSoC. “RISC-V, Arm, whatever the designer’s choice, we can provide a complete and optimised solution to address issues of complexity, scale and quality, that are faced by the semiconductor industry."

Simon Davidmann, Founder and CEO of Imperas added: “The combination of Imperas tools and UltraSoC intelligent analytics will offer developers the best integrated environment for multicore processor designs.”
