Gemalto, the producer of software and hardware for mobile security, is to use the Keil MDK-ARM in its 13 design centres in EMEA, Asia, Latin America and North America. It will use the toolchain for all its ARM processor-based smartcard development.
Gemalto provides secure software, a wide range of secure personal devices, and managed services to wireless operators, banks, enterprises and government agencies.
“Software development for smartcards requires advanced tools from partners, such as ARM, that provide an environment above and beyond that of standard tool chains,” said Frederic Vasnier, SVP Telecom, product delivery & support, Gemalto.
John Cornish, Executive Vice president, System Design Division, ARM, added, “We are very pleased to be working so closely with Gemalto. Keil tools have a long history of supporting sensitive applications, such as smartcards.”
The Keil MDK-ARM has been tailored to meet the demands of software development on ARM SecurCore devices, such as the SC300 processor. MDK features the ARM Compilation tools, the µVision IDE/debugger and advanced simulation models of ARM SecureCore processors, which enables Gemalto to more easily develop and verify secure applications.
The Keil toolchain will demonstrated at ARM TechCon in Santa Clara on October 25-27,
