1.2.1. About the VE Real-Time System Models

The VE RTSMs provide a functionally-accurate model for software execution. However, the model sacrifices timing accuracy to increase simulation speed. Key deviations from actual hardware are:

Many components can be configured at instantiation time. See VE model configuration parameters.

For more detail on the differences, see Differences between the VE and coretile hardware and the models.
