Mentor Embedded Linux Essentials for Freescale QorIQ and PowerQUICC Processors

Fast, no-risk option for silicon evaluation

Freescale

Freescale now offers Mentor Embedded Linux Essentials (MEL-E), a no-cost “lite” version of its premium Mentor Embedded Linux environment, to developers working with select newer platforms. (LTIB will remain available for legacy products)

MEL-E is ideal for application and platform developers in the silicon evaluation phase of Embedded Linux projects, eliminating the need to learn individual board BSP/SDK build instructions. The MEL-E package includes everything you need to start building your own Linux-based platform on Freescale processors, including:

  • Freescale Development Kit
  • System Builder
  • Recipes
  • Community project sources
  • Board Support Package (BSP)
  • Compiler

Key Benefits

  • Stable, up-to-date offering
  • No vendor lock-in
  • Quick start: Evaluate hardware within hours of installation
  • Single, simplified workflow lets you configure and build to your exact needs
  • Support from the unified Mentor/Freescale engineering team
