About the VDK:
Virtualizer Development Kits (VDKs) are software development kits containing design-specific virtual prototypes as well as debug and analysis tools and sample software. The online VDK for ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore contains a Versatile™ Express Virtual Prototype for ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore for educational usage only. It includes a virtualized Ethernet Controller, UARTs, keyboard and mouse interfaces, and a frame-buffer console that allows the user to interact with the platform, just like you would with a real hardware board. Besides all the tools required to operate the virtual prototype, the VDK comes with a complete Linux software stack, including kernel and file-system. A comprehensive user's guide introduces the usage of VDKs for embedded software development.

The user will learn to debug and analyze embedded software along with the underlying hardware platform. The self-study tutorial style user's guide introduces new debugging techniques, enabled by the unique control and visibility provided by VDKs. Even a Linux beginner will gain a lot of insight into the operation of a complex operating system such as Linux. Furthermore, the user will learn how to create custom debug and analysis solutions based on a flexible scripting framework.

The VDK also enables you to run Android, interface with GPS and evaluate power consumption! We invite you to explore all aspects of a VDK and experiment with the software stack.
