Accelerated Technology, the Embedded Systems Division of Mentor Graphics Corp., announced the release of the Nucleus real-time operating system (RTOS) for Texas Instruments' (TI) OMAP1610 platform.

According to Accelerated Tech, the integration of the Nucleus software and TI's OMAP1610 applications processor will give cellular handset applications developers a full-featured, high-performance solution in which to develop differentiated 2.5G and 3G multimedia-enhanced mobile devices and software applications.

"The cellular market is transitioning from low-cost, voice-only handsets to handsets which are rich with features such as multimedia, cameras and e-mail," said Robert Day, director of marketing, Mentor Graphics Embedded Systems Division.

"The proven reputation of the Nucleus RTOS in the cellular phone market combined with a full suite of middleware provides a solid foundation on which to build feature-intense handset applications," he added.

The Nucleus PLUS kernel, the basis of the Nucleus family of products and a widely accepted kernel for building cellular phone applications, is suitable for the feature-rich capabilities that customers require from their multimedia applications.

Other available Nucleus components for the OMAP1610 processor include the Nucleus POSIX application program interface (API), the Nucleus InterProcess Communication (IPC) software and the Nucleus FILE management software.

The OMAP1610 processor, a single-chip application processor that supports all cellular standards, consists of both an ARM9 (TI926EJ-S) and a digital signal processor (DSP) (TMS320C55x) core. Based on TI's OMAP platform of power-efficient applications processors, the OMAP1610 advances multimedia performance required for mobile applications like video and gaming.

The Nucleus embedded software is sold with source code and without royalty fees. Licenses for the Nucleus software begin at $12,495.
