Nucleus RTOS and EDGE tools target IBM chip: Mentor Graphics is in collaboration with IBM to port Mentor's Nucleus real-time operating system and the EDGE Developer Suite to the Cell/B.E. processor (first target: IBM BladeCenter servers). Included will be the entire range of the Nucleus OS components, the Eclipse-based EDGE Developer Suite, and the EDGE MAJIC JTAG probe, all with Cell/B.E.-specific extensions and features.
Have you seen the Cell/B.E. partner products database?: The growing database just added two new Cell/B.E.-related partner downloads. The current offering stands at five:
- The Allinea Distributed Debugging Tool (DDT) (debugs large scale multi-threaded parallel applications running in large clusters) and the Allinea Optimization and Profiling Tool (OPT) companion to DDT.
- The Cmpware Configurable Multiprocessor Development Kit (CMP-DK), a tightly integrated development environment for multicore processors that consists of a component that rapidly builds high-performance simulation models of multicore systems and a component that uses the multicore/multiprocessor models to create a customized Eclipse-based IDE for software development.
- The Gedae Software Development Tool V5.3, a productivity enhancing software development environment that helps developers build real-world, compute-intense applications on single core, multicore, and multiprocessor targets. It combines modeling and building production quality systems into a single IDE.
- The Mercury Computer Systems MultiCore Plus SDK, a suite of software products specifically designed for next-generation multicore processors that includes among its components a comprehensive programming framework and highly optimized math libraries. And there's many more offerings here from MCS.
- RapidMind Development Platform, a software development platform that allows the developer to use standard C++ programming to easily create high performance and massively parallel applications or extend existing applications to run on high performance processors, including the CPU, GPUs, or the Cell/B.E. processor.
