ProPlus Design Solutions launched NanoYield design for yield software. It is a fast and accurate yield prediction and optimization tool for memory, logic, analog and digital circuit design. The toolset is faster than traditional Monte Carlo analysis for both regular three-sigma and advanced six-sigma analysis. NanoYield is part of ProPlus Design Solutions’ transistor-level statistical modeling and design and variations-aware product portfolio. It is shipping now.
Zilog rolled out the enhanced Zilog Development Studio II (ZDS II) toolset for programming SoC solutions leveraging Zilog microprocessors. The ZDS II is a royalty-free, high-end toolset that runs on Windows 98SE/2000/XP/Vista-32 platforms and offers source code editing, debugging and program management all easily accessible from a singly fully-feature integrated development environment. The new Project Wizard is designed so that both beginning and advanced users can sit down and quickly develop a new code project faster than ever before. The ZDS II is available now for free download.
Macraigor Systems ported their On-Chip Debug Technology (OCDemon), GNU Tools Suite and Eclipse Ganymede/Galileo platform to the ARM Cortex-A8 processor. The ARM Cortex-A8 superscalar processor features enhanced code density and performance, NEON technology for multimedia and signal processing, and Jazelle RCT (Runtime Compilation Target) technology for high performance, power-efficient mobile devices. OCDemon for the ARM Cortex-A8 is available immediately starting at $250 USD. The port of the GNU Tools Suite and Eclipse Ganymede/Galileo platform is being offered at no charge and can be downloaded.
ASSET’s ScanWorks platform for embedded instrumentation now supports the PLX visionPAK packet generator/system analyzer toolset. visionPAK provides unique capabilities embedded in PLX PCIe devices helping engineers with board level testing and field debug. ASSET ScanWorks support will enable system manufacturers to use PLX on-board devices to test other components and interconnects of the system more rigorously with lower cost before they get shipped.
