MachineWare supplies the IT industry with virtual prototypes for simulation and verification of digital hardware components and the associated embedded software. Microprocessors (Central Processing Units, CPUs) form the heart of all IT systems and are installed in billions in smartphones, vehicles and many other products. Software development requires extremely fast CPU simulators, which are provided by MachineWare and are integrated into complete virtual prototypes.
One focus is on RISC-V, a disruptive open source CPU architecture originating from UC Berkeley with a rapidly growing market in all IT application domains. Thanks to its innovative and proprietary core technology for simulating virtually any CPU types, MachineWare can offer, among other products, SIM-V, currently the fastest CPU simulator for RISC-V worldwide. This enables customers to achieve shorter time-to-market, more reliable software, and lower energy consumption for simulation.
