Mentor Embedded Supports Freescale’s Multicore QorIQ Processors
Once you’ve selected the Freescale QorIQ processor for your multicore project, design considerations such as performance, power management, and bill of material costs are critical to a successful build. To ensure that your application is developed efficiently, quickly, and within budget – Freescale and Mentor Embedded have teamed up to provide you with best-in-class open source software, tools, and services.
When it comes to open source development, Linux is the software platform of choice – especially for multicore. What many software developers fail to realize is that many of the standard embedded Linux distributions currently available are not very flexible, which means customizing your Linux-based design can quickly turn into a vastly more difficult task.
With this understanding, Mentor Embedded Linux is the best choice for QorIQ developers. Mentor Embedded Linux allows you to build a customized Linux product uniquely configured to Freescale and optimized to meet your specific needs. In addition, Mentor’s common build methodology allows you and your development team to move to a full-featured commercial distribution with minimal impact to your overall project.
Mentor Embedded Linux gives you the freedom to innovate on Freescale multicore QorIQ processors.
