The AVH Fixed Virtual Platforms (AVH FVPs) provide functionally accurate simulation models of Arm-based Cortex-M CPUs and Corstone-3xx Subsystems.

The AVH FVP models are standalone programs that can be executed in a target environment. See Available Models for a list of FVPs provided in the AVH context.

Section Using AVH FVPs gives an overview how to run an embedded program on a target AVH FVP model using command line interface. Infrastructure chapter provides details on how to obtain AVH FVPs and use them in various cloud-native or desktop environments workflows, such as GitHub and Keil MDK.

Virtual Interfaces

The AVH FVPs implement various Virtual Interfaces that can be used to stimulate the application under test.

FVPs with Virtual Interfaces

Both VIO and VSI connect to local python scripts and enable flexible scripting for test automation. Eight VSI interfaces are available and may be used in parallel to stream simultaneous multi-channel inputs and outputs. The interfaces are tailored for simulation, but can also map to physical target hardware, for example to a video camera as a VSI input.

In addition the Event Recorder Capturing provides an interface for the Event Recorder API. This software component enables event annotations in the application code or software component libraries. The Event Recorder provides visibility to the dynamic execution of an application, enables RTOS awareness, and Event Execution Statistics which helps to optimize the timing of complex algorithms.
