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.
Atego recently launched Aonix Perc Ultra SMP 5.4. The latest version of the development tool supports concurrent multi-processor Garbage Collection (GC) technology atop ARM multi-core processors. Aonix Perc Ultra SMP 5.4 supports multi-core ARM processors such as those based on the ARM Cortex A9 processor. Initial testing of this port was done using a four core ARM processor running Linux. Aonix Perc Ultra SMP 5.4 for Linux/ARM target support is available now from Atego.
