Nucleus RTOS Platform Solutions for Atmel
Atmel's SAM microcontrollers and CAP customizable microcontrollers, based on the industry-leading ARM 32-bit RISC architecture, provide the ideal mix of performance, connectivity, security, and power economy for today's deeply embedded connected systems. Built around the ARM7 and ARM9 processor cores, these MCUs feature a highly parallel internal AMBA bus architecture with distributed DMA and memory to achieve maximum data bandwidth.
Mentor Graphics has been at the forefront of supporting Atmel ARM-based microcontrollers for many years with Nucleus RTOS and EDGE Developer Suite. Nucleus RTOS Platform Solutions take this support to a new level by implementing its compelling Nucleus UI technology with a pre-validated application. Re-targeting from one supported hardware platform to another becomes simple. In addition to supporting the latest feature-rich Atmel reference hardware, Nucleus RTOS Platform Solutions fully support an integrated EDGE SimTest environment to enable customers to easily run the same application on a virtual platform even before silicon is available. Therefore, Nucleus RTOS Platform Solutions for Atmel provide developers with a complete platform with which to start prototyping and building products straight away.
