Codasip | Codasip Adopts Imperas for RISC-V Processor Verification

Oxford, United Kingdom & Munich, Germany – 22 November 2021 – Imperas Software Ltd., the chief in verification options for RISC-V, and Codasip, the chief in customizable RISC-V processor IP, at present introduced that Codasip has adopted Imperas reference designs and the Imperas DV resolution for Codasip IP. Codasip has invested closely into processor verification to ship the trade’s highest high quality RISC-V processors.

Codasip has included Imperas golden reference fashions in its DV testbenches to make sure an environment friendly verification circulation that accommodates a variety of versatile options and choices whereas scaling throughout your complete roadmap of future cores to allow rigorous affirmation of purposeful high quality.

Codasip Verification

RISC-V is a modular structure that gives many various permutations of base directions, normal elective extensions and customized directions – that raises considerations about implementations and the chance of fragmentation. Codasip’s inner testing already makes use of an inner instruction-accurate mannequin, a number of sources of direct and random testing (inner and externally offered), and a number of other completely different applied sciences to test and guarantee processor compliance. Imperas configurable reference fashions are already totally examined and allow all of the configuration choices wanted to help this complete view.

The Codasip engineering staff based mostly in Sophia-Antipolis, France, reviewed the challenges of the evolving RISC-V specs, the complete Codasip processor IP portfolio, extensions and configurable options, plus future roadmap plans. Imperas options have been discovered to be best to help the operational workload and scale necessities. The Codasip engineering staff set-up the infrastructure and check frameworks across the Imperas RISC-V Reference Models to effectively check all configurations with the flexibility to adapt for brand new roadmap options.

“Imperas are the pioneers in simulation technology and processor verification for RISC-V,” mentioned Philippe Luc, Verification Director Codasip. “While processor verification is not a new problem, there are many RISC-V suppliers, with customization and various levels of verification or conformance: customers are legitimately concerned about both quality and fragmentation. Codasip is very proud of our rigorous approach to verification– using Imperas as an important part of our quality process furthers extend our differentiation. The Imperas independence, reputation and technical strength provides our customers with further reassurance in our ‘best in class’ RISC-V processors.”

Simon Davidmann, CEO at Imperas Software Ltd, added, “Codasip provides the RISC-V market with a range of processor solutions that enable optimized performance for a wide range of applications. Design verification of this processor IP is fundamental to Codasip continuing to deliver the highest-quality processors as it moves to the next generation of its IP. Each additional optional feature roughly doubles the verification workload. The Imperas approach supports Codasip’s development by applying Continuous Integration/Continuous Development to a sophisticated processor DV environment by using simulation and offers an efficiency advantage without compromising optional features. Imperas and Codasip share a common vision that improved quality is essential to the success of RISC-V.”

The Imperas RISC-V Reference Models for Codasip can be found now to guide prospects and companions for software program growth and as a basis for digital platforms.
