Accelerated Technology's Nucleus EDGE Embedded Development Environment Supports Eclipse 3.0 Platform

Accelerated Technology's Nucleus EDGE Embedded Development Environment Supports Eclipse 3.0 Platform
Accelerated Technology(R), a Mentor Graphics division (Nasdaq:MENT), today announced its Nucleus(R) EDGE software development environment now supports Eclipse version 3.0, the latest version of the open framework. The Nucleus EDGE software provides developers with a more advanced embedded tool suite that allows them to build, compile, debug and deploy embedded applications more quickly and easily.

The Nucleus EDGE software takes advantage of various new productivity enhancements that the Eclipse 3.0 platform offers. Using the Nucleus EDGE software on Eclipse 3.0, developers can benefit from a new, more intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that provides tutorials and demos to guide them through the development process. "Cheat sheets" are available to help users easily step through new features and plug-ins to the Eclipse framework. New multithreaded enhancements to Eclipse also allow the Nucleus EDGE user interface (UI) to be more responsive, permitting users to interact with the GUI while the Nucleus EDGE software is busy running a background task. This is particularly useful when debugging large applications with multiple cores, as engineers typically focus on different parts of their application, concurrently.

"The move to support Eclipse version 3.0 was a remarkably painless exercise for us, but a very important one," said Robert Day, director of marketing, Accelerated Technology Division, Mentor Graphics. "Providing customers with proven embedded tools on the most current, feature-rich, development framework gives them a more tightly integrated, user-friendly environment in which to quickly develop applications."
