Arm Virtual Hardware is available across the following mediums
Arm Virtual Hardware Corstone and Cortex CPUs
Arm Virtual Hardware Fast Model technology was developed by Arm alongside Arm’s processor IP and verified with the same test coverage as the physical processor.
These models precisely simulate instruction and exception behaviors, offer test interfaces for the Open-CMSIS-CDI standard, and run on local hosted development systems as well as cloud-based CI/CD configurations.
Modelling interfaces and flexible debug tool connections fulfill the test and validation requirements of industry standard development processes while providing a scalable and extensible platform through SystemC. All Cortex-M CPUs and Corstone subsystems leverage Arm Virtual Hardware Fast Models. For users inside mainland China, please access Arm Virtual Hardware through AWS China marketplace for a better user experience.
Arm Virtual Hardware 3rd Party Hardware
Arm Virtual Hardware hypervisor technology runs on Arm-based Neoverse datacenter CPUs and executes most instructions natively at a much higher speed than is possible with traditional modeling technologies.
These models virtualize the functional behavior of complete SoCs and development kits, including peripherals, sensors, and other board components. This technology executes the same binaries as on real hardware and leverages the board manufacturers’ or Arm silicon partners’ SDKs and software code examples.
This vital replacement of board farms utilize cloud-based servers and avoids the complexity and cost of maintaining physical hardware installations, and provides a natural and easy to use API for today’s software developers.
