Accelerated Technology, the Embedded Systems Division of Mentor Graphics Corp., announced a new class driver for the Nucleus USB software, which provides USB support for the Nucleus RTOS.

According to a press statement, the newly supported Nucleus USB to RS232 adapter class driver was designed to enable developers to speed their time to market and focus on adding value to their core product rather than writing the source code for the drivers themselves. It uses USB to RS232 converter hardware to connect an embedded USB host to legacy RS232 peripheral devices such as a terminal or modem phone, allowing developers building embedded USB hosts to directly access the RS232 only peripheral devices and applications via the USB to RS232 converter without worrying about how the converter interface works. With this flexibility, the legacy RS232 peripheral systems can be easily and quickly migrated to USB to establish a direct USB data communication link with the USB host system, Accelerated Tech added.

The Nucleus USB to RS232 adapter class driver has been released for use with the Nucleus USB host stack, which is both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 compliant. The Nucleus embedded software is licensed with source code and without royalty fees. Licenses for the Nucleus USB software start at $14,995, while licenses for the class drivers begin at $2,995.
