Mentor Graphics unveils binary version of Nucleus RTOS
Mar 20, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Mentor Graphics Corporation, a supplier of electronic design automation tools -computer software and emulation hardware systems, has unveiled the Nucleus SmartFit product, a binary version of the Nucleus RTOS, or real time operating system, optimized to fit the limited internal memory of 32-bit MCUs.
The Nucleus SmartFit product also includes Sourcery CodeBench development tools and provides developers with broad connectivity and power consumption options for developing products based on 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs). Included in the Nucleus RTOS is the Power Management Framework with which developers can maximize battery life in power-efficient applications.
In addition to Sourcery CodeBench development tools, the Nucleus SmartFit platform can be configured to include I/O and bus support, file systems, networking IPv4/IPv6, wireless, and USB functionality. The Nucleus SmartFit product is suited for medical and personal healthcare, smart grid, industrial sensors, and white goods products.
"32-bit MCUs provide an ideal hardware platform for devices that connect themselves to the Internet, such as those in machine-to-machine (M2M) applications or the Internet of Things," said Scot Morrison, general manager of runtime solutions, Mentor Graphics embedded software division.
"Nucleus SmartFit is a value-based development platform targeted particularly to developers migrating from bare metal to an RTOS environment where embedded devices require intelligence, connectivity, and low-power functionality."
