Used for the co-design of system-on-chip (SOC) based applications, the NitroVP virtual hardware and software prototyping environment has been significantly upgraded. New features include both timing and functional modeling and high-speed simulation of the entire SOC design, a new integrated SOC debugger, language independent modeling, and support for multiple processors and multiple instruction-set simulators.
Users can select from processor options or standard real-time operating systems, as well as model power consumption and memory usage. The application supports real-time operating systems such as VxWorks, pSOS, Nucleus, Micro-Itron, and VRTX, as well as processor models for PowerPC, ColdFire, the SH 1, 2 and 3 DSP family, ST, ARM, Sparc, 68000, x86, and 29xxx. Users can add their own processors as well. Available for Windows, Windows NT, and UNIX platforms, NitroVP prices start at $75,000.
