Mentor Graphics announced the Nucleus product integration and SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) support for the MIPS32 34K core that utilizes MIPS Technologies’ MT (hardware Multi-Threading) technology. The combined technology increases embedded application performance by over 20%. In addition, it does this without increasing power consumption or silicon size. Nucleus RTOS with MIPS’ 34K core provides embedded developers with system performance gains at a much lower cost.
Mentor Graphics and Freescale Semiconductor teamed together to develop a unified workflow methodology for embedded Linux-based development. Mentor Embedded Linux platform, open source tools and services now support Freescale’s Advanced Multi-Processing Series of QorIQ multicore processors. The AMP Series includes 28nm geometries and a new, multi-threaded 64-bit Power Architecture e6500 core with AltiVec technology. The Freescale AMP Series is ideal for networking, industrial and aerospace/military applications.
