MIPS Technologies Inc. and Mentor Graphics Corp. have released the Seamless Hardware/Software Co-Verification Processor Support Package (PSP) for the MIPS32 24K family of 32-bit synthesizable processor cores.

The Seamless co-verification environment enables designers to create a virtual prototype of their 24K core-based system prior to physical hardware availability, reducing the risk of discovering hardware and software problems late in the design cycle. By validating HW/SW interfaces and analyzing the key design performance parameters, designers can shave months off the development process and ensure optimum system performance.

The Seamless PSPs also support the MIPS32 4K, 4KE and 4KS and MIPS64 5K processor families, and 20Kc and 25Kf cores. Mentor Graphics also offers the Seamless PSPs for MIPS-Based processors developed by MIPS licensees such as LSI Logic, PMC-Sierra and Toshiba.

The co-verification environment enables software/hardware development in parallel, removing software from the critical path, reducing the risk of hardware iterations, and increasing overall product quality. Increased visibility into hardware design allows users to debug designs while they are exercised by production software running on the CPU.

The PSP for the MIPS32 24K family is supported by Mentor Graphics and is available for Solaris and Red Hat Linux platforms.
