QuantumLeap is a parallel simulation accelerator for virtual platform software simulation. QuantumLeap uses MultiProcessor target on MultiProcessor host (MPonMP) technology to take advantage of the multiple
x86 cores on the host PC to speed up software simulation. QuantumLeap works for Symmetric and Asymmetric MultiProcessing (SMP and AMP) architectures, and accelerates performance when hardware accelerator blocks or co-processors are included in the platform. Imperas virtual platform simulations using QuantumLeap have shown 15x better performance over a range of benchmarks than the next best virtual platform solution.
