1.1. About the components

The Programmer’s View (PV) models of processors and devices work at a level where functional behavior is equivalent to what a programmer would see using the respective hardware. Timing accuracy is sacrificed to achieve fast simulation execution speeds. This means that you can use the PV models for confirming software functionality, but you must not rely on the accuracy of cycle counts, low-level component interactions, or other hardware-specific behavior.
