The Nucleus Innovate Program continues to attract small companies from many different segments in the embedded market. In fact, we’re seeing several small automotive companies join the Nucleus Innovate Program. Companies like HGM Automotive Electronics, who specialize in transmission shift kits, throttle sensors, transmission pans and accessories.
From an embedded system perspective, their COMPUSHIFT II device operates automatic shifting, paddle shipping and torque converter clutch lockup, allowing their customers to customize performance and the driving experience. While a PC is not required, their products offer a USB port to allow customers to make additional adjustments. COMPUSHIFT II kits are available for carbureted and fuel injected gasoline engines and diesel engines with mechanical or electronic injection systems. HGM offers optional equipment and additional resources to ensure a good customer experience. Shift kits are available for a number of transmissions, such as: GM, Ford, Nissan, Toyota, Chrysler, Mercedes and more. Some of their next generation products will use the Nucleus RTOS and the Sourcery CodeBench IDE tools for a popular NXP ARM based device. We are happy to have HGM as a customer in the Nucleus Innovate Program and we’re looking forward to seeing their next generation devices that will deploy Nucleus inside!
