Innoveda will enhance its V-CPU hardware/software co verification tool with a processor support package for IBM's PowerPC 440 core.
This processor support package will be linked with Wind River Systems' prototyping and simulation tool VxSim, that is currently available with V CPU for early deployment of a System-on-Chip (SoC) HW/SW co-verification solution.
Innoveda will also integrate Endeavor Intertech's PowerPC 440 bus interface models. The agreement also applies to the IBM PowerPC 405 core. The processor support package is scheduled to be available this month. The PowerPC 440 CPU core for SoC applications provides up to 1000 DMIPS with a superscalar design, while dissipating less than 2W of power.
