Virtualizer virtual prototyping solution

Steve Balacco

Virtualizer leverages proven technologies from Synopsys’ acquisitions of Virtio, VaST and CoWare as well as expertise gained from deployments at more than 50 leading semiconductor and electronic systems companies. For developers creating a virtual prototype, Virtualizer’s graphical design entry, software debug, and analysis components combined with Synopsys’ broad portfolio of system-level models deliver the fastest time to prototype availability. For software engineers using a virtual prototype of their system to create, integrate, and verify software, Virtualizer Development Kits (VDKs) offer a cost-effective development platform capable of executing unmodified production code at near real-time speed. VDKs provide fast and accurate virtual prototype simulation combined with unmatched multicore-aware software debug and analysis capabilities, concurrent hardware/software analysis, and synchronized debugging with third-party software debuggers and integrated development environments (IDEs). Open and standards-based, Virtualizer supports key industry standards such as OSCI TLM-2.0 and SystemC™ and runs on both Windows and Linux operating systems.
