Esterel Technologies and France Telecom R&D Partner to Develop Fast-C Code for Embedded System Designs

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. & GUYANCOURT, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sept. 9, 2002--

Joint Solution Automatically Provides Code That is Compact, Portable,

Efficient, and Easy to Maintain

Esterel Technologies, a global provider of design solutions for verification-critical systems, today announced their partnership with France Telecom R&D.

Esterel Technologies has integrated the France Telecom R&D Fast-C (SAXO-RT) compiler into their Esterel Studio product.

The integrated Esterel Studio/SAXO-RT solution provides developers of embedded telecom applications with seamless development flow from specification to embedded C code. The compact and portable Fast-C code generated by this joint solution is easy to integrate into complex and constrained telecom device applications, substantially reducing software debug time.

"Embedded software developers need to be able to put their effort into pure design issues instead of spending time modifying the code. They need to rely on efficient automatically generated code that economizes resources and supports maintenance activities efficiently. The Esterel language and Esterel Studio have proven their ability to produce real-time control software embedded in small communication devices such as PDAs and smart phones. France Telecom R&D has developed its own Esterel compiler, SAXO-RT, for embedded targets," said Jacques Pulou, a technical manager at France Telecom R&D, Grenoble.

"Tests show that Fast-C code is at least 30 percent faster than other optimized generated code," said Eric Bantegnie, president and CEO of Esterel Technologies. "Our methodologies are deployed in a number of industries such as chip design for the wireless industry and avionics that require real-time control systems. We are pleased to be partnering with France Telecom for development of embedded systems in telecommunications."
