1.3. Introduction to the MPS RTSM

The Microcontroller Prototyping System (MPS) is a hardware development platform produced by Gleichmann Electronics Research. The ARM Hpe® module extends the hardware to support an ARM Cortex-M3 or Cortex-M4 processor implemented in an FPGA.

The Microcontroller Prototyping System Real-Time System Models (MPS RTSMs) are system models implemented in software. They are developed using the ARM Fast Models library product.


The MPS RTSMs are provided as example platform implementations and are not intended to be accurate representations of a specific hardware revision. The RTSMs support selected peripherals as described in this book. The supplied RTSMs are sufficiently complete and accurate to boot the same application images as the MPS hardware.
