Detailed information about the SystemC TLM2 Fast Processor Model of the ARM ARMv7 core.
Processor IP owner is ARM Holdings. More information is available from them here.
OVP Fast Processor Model is written in C.
Provides a C API for use in C based platforms.
Provides a native C++ interface for use in SystemC TLM2 platforms.
The model is written using the OVP VMI API that provides a Virtual Machine Interface that defines the behavior of the processor.
The VMI API makes a clear line between model and simulator allowing very good optimization and world class high speed performance.
The model has been run through an extensive QA and regression testing process.
Model downloadable (needs registration and to be logged in) in package arm.model for Windows32 and for Linux32
Model Variant name: ARMv7
ARM Processor Model
Usage of binary model under license governing simulator usage. Source of model available under Imperas Software License Agreement.
Models have been extensively tested by Imperas.
Thumb-2 instructions are supported.
Trivial Jazelle extension is implemented.
Security extensions are implemented (also known as TrustZone). Non-secure accesses can be made visible externally by connecting the processor to a 41-bit physical bus, in which case bits 39..0 give the true physical address and bit 40 is the NS bit.
OVP simulator downloadable (needs registration and to be logged in) in package OVPsim for Windows32 and for Linux32

The ARMv7 SystemC TLM2 Fast Processor Model also has parameters, model commands, and many registers.
The model may also have hierarchy or be multicore and have other attributes and capabilities.
