RISC-V Open Virtual Platform Simulator (riscvOVPsim™) as a reference Instruction Set Simulator (ISS), including open source model, specifically for the RISC-V community of software developers, implementers and early adopters.
riscvOVPsim is a free RISC-V simulator and model of a complete single-core RISC-V CPU, delivering commercial high-level simulation performance and quality for development and compliance testing.

  • Jump starts software development prior to broad availability of silicon devices and development boards.
  • Enables early stage implementation testing, and Design Verification (DV) of RISC-V CPU core designs.
  • Assists compliance by providing a reference for compliance test development.

riscvOVPsim benefits both hardware and software developers, across a broad variety of applications and markets.

  • Those needing to develop RISC-V software.
  • Developers looking to build and / or test compliance on a RISC-V CPU implementation.

Highlights of the RISC-V Open Virtual Platform Simulator and model (riscvOVPsim), developed by Imperas Software, include:

  • Model: An open-source, configurable RISC-V Fast Processor Model, a full single core implementation of current 32/64bit RISC-V ISS feature specifications. This complete, flexible model covers all the RISC-V permitted configurations and variants.. The instruction-accurate RISC-V model can be configured to any single core RISC V configuration and is suitable as a platform target to develop bare metal applications. It covers the RISC-V User and Privilege specifications..
  • Simulator: riscvOVPsim includes an instruction-accurate RISC-V CPU simulator, based on the world-class Imperas Open Virtual Platform (OVP) technology and simulator, the simulator used by the RISC-V compliance group. This easy to use, commercial-grade performance and quality RISC-V simulator is for use in compliance and test development. It delivers exceptionally fast, high-performance simulation, over 1 billion instructions per second performance on a standard host PC (Windows or Linux). Runtime configurable settings for all RISC V specification options makes it very easy to compare runtime results with RTL implementation.
  • Free and easy to adopt: riscvOVPsim is available for free for personal, academic, or commercial use, and the model is provided as open source. Easy to adopt and use: simply download the executable from GitHub, and run on a standard Linux or Windows host PC. It is a comprehensive environment for embedded software development, debug and verification, along with compliance testing.

riscvOVPsim is free, and available now for download on GitHub, along with the latest RISC-V compliance test suite and framework, also available on GitHub: It includes a free to use license from Imperas, which supports commercial as well as academic use. The open source model is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license.
The riscvOVPsim solution is an entry ramp for development, as well as a compliance testing tool. For developers of more advanced RISC-V designs, who need multi-core support and advanced debug tools, Imperas also offers full-capability virtual platforms of some leading RISC-V platforms including the multi-core SiFive U540 and many others.
