Learn how to reuse legacy applications on a modern RTOS and processor



Over the last decade an enormous body of embedded code has been developed for a wide range of RTOS vendors and versions.  Leveraging much of this code in new designs is an imperative for both economic and technical reasons.  However, manually migrating code across RTOS releases within a vendor, let alone across vendors, is tedious, expensive, and error prone. The alternative is to remain with an obsolete RTOS version, which becomes more technically antiquated, as well as difficult to support and update with each passing year.  Mapusoft and Mentor are working together to solve this problem by providing a solution that allows legacy code to move to state of the art execution environments.

What You Will Learn

  • How Mentor Graphics and MapuSoft enable you to leverage large legacy code bases toward the newest processor and RTOS technologies
  • The process of migrating deeply embedded code designs with minimal design impact
  • Compelling economics of migrating through automated tools
