Mentor Graphics introduced the Embedded Hypervisor tool for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems, telematics, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and instrumentation. The Mentor Embedded Hypervisor is a small footprint Type 1 hypervisor developed specifically for embedded applications and intelligent connected devices. The Mentor Embedded Hypervisor product will ship in December 2013.
Synopsys Platform Architect now features Multicore Optimization Technology. Platform Architect with Multicore Optimization Technology is ideal for performance analysis and early definition of multicore system architectures in SystemC. The new solution enables SoCs, chipsets and systems designers to capture hardware/software performance models of multicore system architectures in the early concept phase for robust performance measurement and trade-off analysis, months prior to software availability.
Atego rolled out Artisan Studio ParaSolver, which is an add-on module for Artisan Studio standards-based, model-driven development tool suite. Artisan Studio ParaSolver increases the design power of Artisan Studio by providing embedded system engineers with the ability to secure their design decisions. Artisan Studio ParaSolver increases design quality assurance and reduces overall design time and costs by providing system engineers with the ability to easily identify the best design compromises and enabling optimal design solutions to be quickly determined.
Data Relay, from McObject, is a technology for fast and flexible data-sharing between real-time applications based on eXtremeDB, and external systems such as an enterprise DBMS. Data Relay simplifies the code that “looks inside” database transactions for changes that should be relayed. It also improves efficiency by eliminating the CPU-intensive task of monitoring database activity. eXtremeDB Data Relay is available now in all versions of McObject’s eXtremeDB Transaction Logging edition.
Semtech and Microchip Technology introduced the SX1230-13RKEA433 turnkey reference design for multi-band wireless remote keyless entry (RKE) systems. The reference design integrates Semtech’s transmitter and transceiver ICs with Microchip’s KEELOQ code-hopping technology running on PIC microcontrollers (MCUs). The platform is ideal for the development of secure, high-performance and cost-effective RKE systems for vehicles, office buildings, and homes. SX1230-13RKEA433 provides a single platform that works across virtually all major frequency regulations. The reference design kit is available now from Semtech.
Real-Time Innovations (RTI) rolled out version 4.5 of RTI Data Distribution Service. The latest version features new mediation capabilities to bridge between applications that natively support different external interfaces and protocols. RTI Data Distribution Service 4.5 reduces the time and cost required to build and integrate real-time systems-of-systems. RTI Data Distribution Service 4.5 is available now and free for evaluation, research, universities and internally-funded Independent Research and Development (IRAD).
At DAC 2010, ECSI (Electronic Chips & Systems design Initiative) is offering a workshop titled, Choosing Advanced Verification Methods. The workshop will present a survey of recent verification solution advances and will bring insight into the effects these technologies are having on leading edge design projects. Measurable impact on quality, time-to-market, schedule, efficiency, and actual ROI will be analyzed. Participants will be able to hear from real engineers about their verification problems and their experiences in the deployment of these technologies.
EB (Elektrobit) introduced EB Assist ADTF (Automotive Data and Time-Triggered Framework) modular development framework. EB Assist ADTF accelerates the software development process of driver assistance systems. EB Assist ADTF enables the synchronous collection of relevant sensor data and bus signals (LIN, CAN, FlexRay, MOST), and can replay them in real time. As a result, software functions can be evaluated and validated in near-real time. EB Assist ADTF can display results both in the vehicle and in the laboratory.
DDC-I will host a webinar on about safety-critical software reuse for next-generation avionics and multi-core systems. The webcas is ideal for systems engineers, software engineers, and engineering managers who need to reuse software and adapt it to new target environments without changing the software. The online seminar will take place 2:00 PM EDT on May 12, 2010.
Atego rolled out Aonix PERC Ultra SMP 5.4. The latest version supports concurrent multi-processor garbage collection technology. The latest PERC release improves overall system functionality and provides broader platform availability. Aonix PERC Ultra SMP is available now from Atego. Aonix PERC development tools are available at no charge with a maintenance contract. Aonix PERC Ultra SMP is ideal for real-time Java applications and mission-critical embedded systems.
