Accelerated Technology, a Mentor Graphics division, announced a new class driver for the Nucleus USB software, which provides Universal Serial Bus (USB) support for the Nucleus Real-Time Operating System (RTOS).

According to the company, the Nucleus USB Chip/Smart Card Interface Device (CCID) class driver allows developers to quickly and easily build a standard USB interface without writing device-specific drivers to connect an embedded host to a variety of smart card readers. "The Nucleus USB CCID class driver support makes the integration in an existing system the easiest ever by connecting the embedded host and smart card reader without the need for an additional driver, said Robert Day, director of marketing, Embedded Systems Division, Mentor Graphics. "It also helps businesses evolve and expand their products and services in a changing global marketplace by offering customers to easily and securely access the smart card based transactions and applications."

Since the Nucleus USB CCID class driver incorporates the USB CCID standard, it enables the embedded host to interface with CCID-compliant smart card readers via a USB link, eliminating the need to develop a device-specific driver. Developers benefit from reduced driver development costs and time-to-market. It also allows them to provide their customers with devices compliant with the USB CCID specification, which is important to maintain compatibility among devices from different manufacturers.

The Nucleus embedded software is licensed with source code and without royalty fees. Available now, licenses for the Nucleus USB software start at $14,995 and licenses for the class drivers begin at $2,995. The new Nucleus USB CCID class driver has been released for use with the Nucleus USB host stack software, which is USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 compliant.
