Designers Gain Quick Access to a Variety of Easy-to-Use Tools Utilizing Android, Embedded Linux or Real-Time Operating Systems for Faster Time to Market
NUREMBERG, Germany, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Embedded World 2013, Atmel® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML), a leader in microcontroller (MCU) and touch technology solutions, today announced the company has expanded its third-party ecosystem of tools and software partners for its recently launched ARM® Cortex®-A5 processor-based family of products. Partner companies include ARM, Timesys, Express Logic and IAR.
According to the 2012 Embedded Study conducted by UBM, 61 percent of its respondents said the microprocessor's (MPUs) ecosystem (software, tools support, etc.) is one of the most critical aspects for their MPU designs. In this same study, respondents indicated that Embedded Linux and Android are two operating systems they had planned to use in the next 12 months for their embedded designs.
The expanded list of tools and software partners enable embedded design engineers using the Atmel SAMA5D3 series of ARM Cortex-A5 processor-based MPUs the ability to design on a variety of systems including embedded Linux, Android and other real-time operating systems.
Each partner company offers a tool enabling embedded designers the ability to get to market faster.
"The recently launched SAMA5D3 ARM Cortex-A5 series is our highest performing processor series in our comprehensive portfolio of microcontrollers," said Jacko Wilbrink, Sr. Director of ARM-based MPUs, Atmel. "We are excited to team with a number of innovative companies to allow our embedded developers the ability to select their preferred integrated development environment, compiler, RTOS, stack and GUI. Each partner has worked closely with Atmel to ensure a designer will have a seamless experience when working with our partner companies."
"IAR Systems offers a complete, powerful development environment for the SAMA5D3 series," said Mats Ullström, Director of Products and Services, IAR Systems. "Our high-performance tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench delivers compact, fast performing code; advanced power debugging technology enables developers to test and tune their application for power optimization. We provide complete support for Atmel's ARM and non-ARM based processors, which greatly simplifies migration for customers moving between different processors for different development projects."
