Abstract

Virtual platforms have become essential tools for the design of embedded systems. Developers rely on them for design space exploration and software debugging. However, with rising HW/SW complexity and the need to simulate more and more processors simultaneously, the performance of virtual platforms degrades rapidly. Parallel simulation techniques can help to counter this by leveraging multicore PCs, which are widely available today. This work presents a novel parallel simulation approach that is targeted toward acceleration of virtual platforms from the ESL domain. By trading some timing accuracy, multiprocessor virtual platforms can be accelerated by up to 3.4× on regular quad-core workstations.
