Micrium Offers Expanded Support for uC/OS-II RTOS for Entire Tensilica Dataplane Processor Line

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Sep 16, 2009 -- Tensilica®, Inc. and Micrium announced expanded support for Micrium's popular uC/OS-II RTOS (real-time operating system) available directly from Micrium. The RTOS port has been enhanced to take full advantage of all configuration options on Tensilica's Xtensa® customizable dataplane processors (DPUs) as well as Tensilica's standard DPUs and Diamond controller cores.

"We continue to see strong demand for Micrium's uC/OS-II RTOS from our customers," stated Chris Jones, Tensilica's director of strategic alliances. "Designers like uC/OS-II because of its small code footprint and Micrium offers a very attractive licensing model."

"Tensilica continues to gain market share and market traction in the embedded world and we see increased demand from our user base for broad support of the Tensilica architecture," stated Jean Labrosse, president of Micrium. "Now we can offer our popular uC/OS-II RTOS, as well as our other software solutions, to all Xtensa designers, even those with the complex dataplane processor configurations."

Micrium's uC/OS-II is a portable, ROMable, scalable, preemptive, real-time deterministic multitasking kernel for microprocessors and microcontrollers. uC/OS-II is provided with all source code, which is 100 percent portable ANSI C. Easily scaled because of the modular nature of the source code, uC/OS-II can present a very small footprint for space-constrained designs.

Tensilica offers the widest range of processor cores with the best speed/power ratio in the industry. Based on an extremely efficient modern architecture, Tensilica's cores are popular for design in a wide variety of embedded devices ranging from mobile communications to home entertainment to high-end communications infrastructure.
