Mentor Graphics in September announced its Embedded ReadyStart Platform , a “ready-to-use” solution comprising integrated software IP, tools, and services targeting popular hardware boards and system-on-chips (SoCs).
The company developed the product for applications in which small footprint, high-performance, and low power are key and time to market crucial.
Mentor Graphics' product marketing manager Steve Olsen describes the product and the strategy behind it in the nearby video (5:09).
The ReadyStart Platform tightly integrates the Mentor Graphics Nucleus RTOS with the Inflexion Platform user interface (UI) runtime engine for 2D and 3D graphics and wired and wireless connectivity middleware.
The ReadyStart Platform provides a single distribution to accelerate fast “bring-up” of a complete system, including a new board support package (BSP) interface and power management services to optimize low-power design.
The ReadyStart Platform for Nucleus is listed at $24,995 and includes the Nucleus RTOS, wired and wireless connectivity middleware, and Inflexion UI runtime engine for a single project with two developer seats.
