1.4 About Fixed Virtual Platform (FVP)
Fixed Virtual Platform (FVP) targets enable development of software without the requirement for actual hardware. The functional behavior of an Fixed Virtual Platform (FVP) is equivalent to real hardware from a programmers view.
When using an Fixed Virtual Platform (FVP),
absolute timing accuracy is sacrificed to achieve fast simulated execution speed. This
means that you can use a model for confirming software functionality, but you must not
rely on the accuracy of cycle counts, low-level component interactions, or other
, covering a range of processors
family. You can also connect to a
variety of other ARM®
and third-party simulation models implementing CADI.
The executables are located in tools_directory
. You can use them to run your applications from either
the command-line or within Eclipse. See 2.3 Installation directories
for more information about various directories that
are installed with DS-5
