Accelerated Technology, the Embedded Systems Division of Mentor Graphics Corp., announced that its code|lab Debug software debugger now provides support for the ISA-Nios II and ISA-Nios II/T system analysis tools from First Silicon Solution (FS2).

According to the company, developers using Altera's Nios II embedded processors can now quickly and easily debug their embedded applications using the code|lab debugging software with FS2's system analyzer tools.

The code|lab Debug tool support for the Nios II family of processors was originally announced in conjunction with real-time kernel support last May.

The code|lab Debug software tool provides a range of multitasking debugging features that include execution control, hardware breakpoints, trace, scripting, program map and two-point timing. Combined with the FS2 system analysis debugger tools, the software provides an out-of-the-box debugging solution to help Nios II processor developers easily detect and correct bugs in their source code.

"The combination of the code|lab Debug software with the FS2 analysis tools brings a new level of system visibility to developers using the NIOS II architecture," said Robert Day, director of marketing of Accelerated Tech. "The powerful trace, triggering and performance analysis features of FS2's ISA devices are an excellent complement to the advanced features of the code|lab Debug software, and offer developers a complete and integrated toolset."

Specifically designed for Nios II processor developers, the system analyzer tools include a new performance analysis mode that greatly facilitates user optimization of hardware and software for the FPGA environment.

The Nucleus embedded software is sold in source code format and without royalty fees. Licenses for the code|lab Debug software tool begin at $2,495.
