Mentor Graphics Releases Nucleus SmartFit

Mar 21, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Mentor Graphics Corp. announced the Nucleus SmartFit product, a binary version of the Nucleus RTOS (real time operating system) optimized to fit the limited internal memory of 32-bit MCUs.

In a release, the Company noted the Nucleus SmartFit product also includes Sourcery CodeBench development tools and provides developers with broad connectivity and power consumption options for developing products based on 32-bit microcontrollers.


"32-bit MCUs provide an ideal hardware platform for devices that connect themselves to the Internet, such as those in machine-to-machine applications or the Internet of Things," said Scot Morrison, general manager of runtime solutions, Mentor Graphics Embedded Software Division. "Nucleus SmartFit is a value-based development platform targeted particularly to developers migrating from bare metal to an RTOS environment where embedded devices require intelligence, connectivity, and low-power functionality." Included in the Nucleus RTOS is the Power Management Framework with which developers can maximize battery life in power-efficient applications. In addition to Sourcery CodeBench development tools, the Nucleus SmartFit platform can be configured to include I/O and bus support, file systems, networking IPv4/IPv6, wireless, and USB functionality. The Nucleus SmartFit product is suited for medical and personal healthcare, smart grid, industrial sensors, and white goods products.

The Nucleus SmartFit product will be available for purchase online.
