Atollic introduced TrueSTUDIO for ARM v3.2. The integrated development environment for embedded microcontroller designs now offers RTOS-aware debug support for real-time operating systems like FreeRTOS, OpenRTOS, ThreadX and embOS. The ARM development tool is an integrated C/C++ solution with features for multicore debugging, improved code quality, team collaboration and increased developer efficiency. Atollic TrueSTUDIO v3.2 helps engineers to quickly develop embedded systems with higher quality and at lower cost.
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.
The Mentor Embedded Nucleus real time operating system (RTOS) Power Management Framework now features a hibernate mode. With the new hibernate/standby capability, engineers can minimize power consumption and maximize the life of battery-operated devices. The hibernate capability of the Nucleus Power Management Framework provides simplified access to power management functionality that would otherwise be left to the developer to write from scratch.
Express Logic’s PrismX GUI software development solution now supports the STMicroelectronics STM32 processor family. PrismX is a ThreadX RTOS-integrated port of Blue Water Embedded’s Prism technology. It is ideal for resource-constrained devices such as STMicroelectronics Cortex-M3-based STM32. PrismX features a high-performance graphical drawing library and a GUI widget set for the STM32 platform. PrismX for the STM32F10C is available in full source code form, royalty free. License prices start at $9,500.
eSOL introduced the eT-Kernel SDK, which is a new, ready-to-use software platform. The SDK enables software developers to build application frameworks out of the box. The eT-Kernel SDK is based on the highly reliable eT-Kernel RTOS, which is ideal for car navigation systems, satellites and other spacecraft, and various embedded devices. The eT-Kernel SDK includes the EC-4260 System-on-Chip (NaviEngine-MID) from Renesas Electronics. The EC-4260 features the ARM11 MPCore Multi-core processor.
Atego rolled out Aonix Perc Ultra for VxWorks MILS Platform 2.1. Atego’s Aonix Perc Ultra is a virtual machine and tool set expressly created for demanding embedded and real-time systems requiring Java Standard Edition support. Aonix Perc Ultra offers the ease and efficiency of Java SE without sacrificing integrity, performance, or real-time behavior. Aonix Perc Ultra 5.3 and Aonix Perc Ultra SMP 5.4 feautre Ahead-of-Time (AOT) and Just-in-Time (JIT) compilation, remote debug support, deterministic garbage collection, standard graphics and extended commercial RTOS support on a wide variety of target processors.
The Mentor Embedded ReadyStart Platform is a ready-to-use solution for quickly developing medical, industrial, automotive and consumer devices. The ReadyStart Platform consists of integrated software IP, tools, and services for various hardware boards and system-on-chips (SoCs). The Mentor ReadyStart Platform for Nucleus is priced at $24,995. It includes the Nucleus RTOS, wired and wireless connectivity middleware, and Inflexion UI runtime engine for a single project with two developer seats.
Express Logic introduced PrismX, which is an integration of Blue Water Embedded’s Prism GUI (graphic user interface) development solution with Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS. PrismX graphical interface development tools and libraries are ideal for designing and deploying advanced graphical interfaces on embedded systems. PrismX is delivered with full source code and royalty free, at license prices starting under $10,000.
Mentor Embedded launched their first commercial Linux platform, Mentor Embedded Linux. The RTOS is a result of Mentor Graphics’ acquisition of Embedded Alley, the alliance between Freescale Semiconductor and Mentor Graphics, and a similar alliance with NetLogic Microsystems. Mentor Embedded Linux enables developers to design customized applications, fully compatible with open source packages, with no vendor lock-in and greater reliability while accelerating overall design development time. The platform provides comprehensive open source Linux software, tools, and maintenance and support.
Express Logic announced market-specific, turnkey, Safety-Critical Certification Pack products for their ThreadX RTOS. ThreadX Safety Critical Certification Packs are available for a wide range of target environments and development tools, and for a wide range of European and International regulatory standards. Express Logic is extending its offering to cover RTCA’s DO-178B, FDA 510(k) Pre-Market Notification and Approval, and IEC-61508 for avionics, medical and industrial automation equipment. License prices starting at $25,000.
