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.
vfAnalyst, from Vector Fabrics, is a cloud-based tool for parallelizing sequential C code in embedded systems. vfAnalyst enables software engineers to identify the most promising parallelization opportunities so that they can create an effective multicore implementation much more quickly. vfAnalyst is hosted on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and accessed through a standard web browser. The tool is paid for on a pay-as-you-go basis. vfAnalyst is available now.
