Hi, I am currently working on a SmartFusion2 project, and did some search on the web. I found several pages describing how to write bare-metal applications for ARM Cortex-M3 using qemu. I even found a project with efforts to make a virtual development environment for PCIe on github. https://github.com/texane/vpcie.
I'm the VHDL developer in our team, and I am not really good at deciding the level of effort needed to combine qemu and ghdl to make a more generic virtual development platform for software developers. If it would be easy, I guess somebody would have done this by now. Isn't ghdl creating gcc code for the simulation, and could this generated c-code be linked into a qemu binary to have a simulation level of the hardware? I hope to provide testvectors to the VHDL hardware level which represent corner cases difficult to reproduce in the lab and to give the software developers a reliable development platform. Kind regards, -- Svenn
