Bringing Accuracy to Open Virtual Platforms (OVP): A Safari From High-Level Tools to Low-Level Microarchitectures
The aggressive technology scaling in the feature size has propelled the designers to integrate millions of transistors in a single die. Thus Multi-Processor System on Chip (MPSoC) has become the irrefutable elucidation to meet the demands of parallel computing in the domain of embedded systems. The gap between software development and actual hardware model has led to the emergence of virtual platforms so that the performance status can be improved even before the Register Transfer Logic (RTL) of the hardware is actualized. This paper presents a framework to bring accuracy to Open Virtual Platforms (OVP).
