AGP Micro Announces The First Eclipse Plug-In For Graphically Programming Embedded And Real-Time Systems.

Source: Press Release Network


AGP Micro Limited, a new independent software vendor of Eclipse plug-ins for embedded and real-time systems, announced today their new product xState Developer, a state machine based graphical programming tool for embedded and real-time system developers. AGP Micro will publicly release xState Developer at the Embedded Systems Conference Boston, booth 1029 on the 13th September 2005. The first European demonstration will be at the Embedded Systems Show 2005, NEC, Birmingham, UK on the 19th October.

xState Developer uses a graphical hierarchical state machine notation for the development of event based logic coupled with an ANSI C code generator to provide a graphical programming tool for Embedded and real-time system developers. xState Developer decreases the number of bugs within the software implementation by using a simple hierarchical state machine notation and avoiding the complexity and ambiguities of UML State machines and State charts that can introduce bugs at the design level.

The graphical hierarchical state machine design in xState developer represents a deterministic model of the state machine, allowing the model to be checked for deterministic properties. The code generator generates ANSI C90 code with MISRA-C: 2004 support in a deterministic manor keeping the deterministic properties of the design model while adding comments to allow trace ability of features from the code to model.

xState Developer as an Eclipse plug-in extends the powerful functionality of the Eclipse platform and Eclipse derived IDEs. Eclipse with its plug-in architecture provides developers with a multi language, multi platform, multi vendor IDE for software development, allowing developers to realize a multi vendor tool chain for software development. AGP Micro is committed to providing tools as part of a multi vendor tool chain within Eclipse.
