Sometimes, you just don't have the real thing

Too expensive? Not yet available? Use our VP to develop and test your software!

virtual platform

Easier to deploy, setup and use

Tired of plugging, unplugging, overwriting and reprogramming the board?

  • Just hit Enter and run everything in your virtual environment
  • Bugs? Pause the VP and observe the system state

IoT ready

Need to test large-scale applications running on dozens of devices?

  • Run multiple instances of the virtual platform and scale-up in one click
  • Connect the instances through a virtual network

About us

Antfield provides cutting-edge solutions around virtual platforms of Systems on Chips (SoC). We propose tailored virtual platforms that fit our clients requirements, develop on-demand simulation models for components and provide co-simulation solutions with other environments.

Our dedicated technology, Rabbits, is based on several years of research conducted in the TIMA lab (Grenoble, France) since 2009. Rabbits is a fast and flexible simulation framework that uses SystemC to model components and QEMU to simulate platform CPUs. We have a close relationship with the research community and keep developing Rabbits to maintain its cutting-edge simulation capabilities.

We believe in open-source software and maintain a community edition of Rabbits. We also propose full proprietary solutions to our clients.
