Simulation models let you develop software for Arm IP even when you do not have access to hardware. They provide a great way to start bare metal or OS-hosted software development for Arm. This removes the problem of starting software design only after physical targets are available. Engineers can get started programming the latest Arm IP at the earliest possible stage, shortening the software development cycle.

Simulation models are developed and tested alongside Arm IP, providing highly accurate and validated virtual prototypes for software development.

Cycle Models

  • 100% cycle accurate models of Arm IP, compiled directly from RTL

  • Prove designs before manufacture

  • Develop bare metal software early

  • Accelerate system-level debugging
