Lauterbach is the leading manufacturer of complete, modular and upgradeable microprocessor development tools. The unified and configurable user interface and architecture-independent base modules support almost all of the available processor architectures in the market today. Thanks to this modular concept, the debug system can be optionally extended with off-chip trace functions. TRACE32® tools are applied early in the pre-silicon phase for virtual prototyping and provide seamless transition to all follow-up phases throughout the development process until mass production.

robimo - robots in motion
Robimo, a spin off from the University of Vienna, is a software service provider and creates research based, modern software products. As basis we cover the areas of web development (full stack, frameworks include e.g. symfony, wordpress, typo3, react, phonegap, etc.), virtual and augmented reality projects for education, training, entertainment, etc., artificial intelligence and machine learning (our main competence is image analysis and object detection), and unmanned aerial vehicles (aka drones). We can combine these areas in integrated products, applications include building maintenance in industrial areas, energy providers, media production (movies and commercials), medical organizations, car manufacturers, etc.


A retargetable, high performance simulator tool with a palette of outstanding features, like reverse execution, undefined value support, VLIW support, SystemC/TLM interface, and others. By means of a generator tool a target CPU architecture description is converted into source code for building a HIPERSIM simulator variant for the respective CPU. Thus, HIPERSIM can be easily adopted to different architectures and architecture changes like the ISA specification or the register file. A RISC-V simulator reaching 400 MIPS with well reputed benchmarks and 1.000 MIPS peak performance is available to customers:

ABIX HiperSIM Simulator

ABIX has worked with the German company Lauterbach to interface HIPERSIM with the renowned, worldwide used Lauterbach TRACE32 debug solutions. The ABIX HIPERSIM for RISC-V can be found in the Lauterbach list of supported simulations "Supported Simulations/ Emulations/ Debug via Standard I/O".

European emblem This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 877543.

 IoT COGUTS Compiler

An LLVM based compiler tool providing optimizations for IoT and other systems with low resource footprint. Due to the innovative multi-objective optimization technology the COGUTS compiler can generate code which is simultaneously optimized for code size, execution speed and power consumption. The initial version of the COGUTS compiler will be targeted at RISC-V based IoT systems.


Austrian Bit Experts is a technology, services and consultancy company that provides software tools solutions for the embedded system and IoT markets.
