Nucleus Real Time OS is the most widely deployed commercial operating system in the mobile handset market and provides a seamless layer between the handset software and the underlying silicon. It frees semiconductor vendors and ODM/OEM software developers to innovate and differentiate, instead of being tied up working on mundane platform development and time-consuming hardware integration. As devices adopt multi-core silicon, Mentor Graphics offers a powerful set of tools and software to enable both SMP and AMP multi-core solutions (for example Nucleus SMP, Nucleus/Linux, and Nucleus/Android).
Inflexion UI ensures that our customers are able to implement innovative, slick animated 3D and 2D user interfaces on their devices in a fraction of the time it would otherwise take. Inflexion comes with out-of-box support for Android, Linux and Nucleus making it the perfect choice for mobile handsets.
Proven Software Platform
Nucleus Real Time OS is a standardized, proven software platform for feature phones and for baseband cores; it runs on silicon from the major providers: TI, ST, Mediatek, Broadcom, Infineon, NXP, Samsung, Freescale, NEC, and Renesas.
A compelling and differentiated look and feel can be rapidly created and customized using Inflexion UI for Android, Linux & Nucleus. Advanced graphical effects, animation 3D, and dynamic switching can be implemented and tested in a matter of minutes in a drag and-drop design environment. It allows our customers to create UIs which make use of the large touch screens and Open GL/ES hardware acceleration typical of handset devices and offer intuitive UIs which stand out from the crowd.
A power-efficient design is an inevitable consequence of using an OS like Nucleus RTOS as efficiency of memory usage is a key requirement.
Streamlined Solution Reduces Costs and Maintains Efficiency
A single vendor solution which streamlines development and contains costs. Nucleus Real Time OS is truly real time, with a small memory footprint and a flexible business model, and includes all the services and development tools that might be expected in a complete embedded operating system: Kernels, Storage & Database, Networking, USB, UI, Multimedia.
Rapid hardware migration is facilitated by a proven OS hardware abstraction layer and standard open APIs for portability.
Rich Software Ecosystem
Rich ecosystem around Nucleus Real Time OS. Best-in-class software partners have partnered with Mentor Graphics to create Nucleus-based value-added enhancements for mobile handset applications: Bluetooth, Web browsers, messaging, FOTA (Firmware Over The Air), multimedia codecs, audio enhancements, DRM.
