A “Virtual Turnkey Platform” application software development environment

The virtual turnkey platform is a software development kit (R-Car SDK) with pretested software libraries and sample code on the virtual development environment R-Car Virtual Platform (VPF). The R-Car VPF is based on Synopsys' Virtualizer Development Kits (VDK) and is customized for R-Car by adding virtual models of the R-Car-specific intellectual property (IP). This, along with the R-Car SDK, enables immediate virtual development of application software. Since this platform reproduces the actual chip with a high degree of accuracy, users don't need to set up a development environment using an actual board, and multiple users can develop software simultaneously on their own PCs or servers.



Virtual Platform

A virtual development environment to accelerate in-vehicle software development

Virtual Development Environment for R-Car The R-Car Virtual Platform is a highly accurate simulation environment that enables software development to take place even before an actual chip is available to support shift-left software development and system verification.

  • Implementing a CPU model so that software can be executed on that CPU.
  • It can have R/W access to memory space such as DRAM.
  • Address map and arithmetic precision that are perfectly matched to the corresponding devices enable a highly accurate simulation.

The R-Car Virtual Platform (VPF) is available from our partners. Please contact the following partners for purchase information.
