ARM and Mentor Graphics Announce Support for Nucleus RTOS and Nucleus Graphics in the RealView Development Suite

WILSONVILLE, Ore. & CAMBRIDGE, England — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 21, 2009 — Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) and ARM (LSE: ARM) (NASDAQ: ARMH) today announced at ARM TechCon 3, Santa Clara, Calif., a comprehensive software development solution for Nucleus® RTOS and Nucleus Graphics on ARM® processors. This is the result of a close collaboration to develop Nucleus RTOS awareness in the ARM RealView® Development Suite and to include the RealView Compiler in the Nucleus distribution.

Mentor Graphics has adopted the RealView Compiler as the reference compiler for Nucleus RTOS and middleware, which will result in end products with even higher performance and lower memory requirements. The Nucleus and EDGE™ development kits include an evaluation version of the RealView Compiler, and Mentor Graphics will distribute a full version of the compiler as part of their product offering.

The RealView Development Suite enables a seamless evaluation of Nucleus RTOS and the Nucleus Graphics 3D GUI technology by running pre-packaged examples on its fast Real-Time System Models. RealView Debugger supports kernel-aware debugging of the Nucleus kernel and can be used to do run-mode debug of Nucleus applications. The ARM Profiler can non-intrusively analyze Nucleus applications, generating profiling reports and optimization information.

“Mentor provides leading embedded technologies for today’s advanced products, including support for Nucleus RTOS, Linux, and Android-based devices,” said John Cornish, System Design Division executive vice president and general manager, ARM. “The addition of support for Nucleus RTOS in our leading RealView Development Suite provides an optimum solution for accelerated product development and innovation.”

“The RealView Compiler is the best set of compilation tools for ARM processors and is essential to get the best performance out of Mentor’s RTOS and GUI products,” said Glenn Perry, Mentor Graphics Embedded Systems Division general manager. “Our agreement with ARM will enable customers to quickly create exciting new products to meet market needs.”
