Version 1.1 of Accelerated Technology's Nucleus EDGE, an Eclipse-based development environment, touts new features such as extended kernel awareness, a debug channel, and closer integration with Nucleus UML suite and profiler software.

The extended kernel awareness includes support for micro-ITRON developers and opens the kernel awareness API, via extension points, to Accelerated Tech's real-time operating system (RTOS). In this way, users can add kernel awareness to a non-Nucleus OS, like Linux or a proprietary kernel, to easily take advantage of all the features of Nucleus EDGE software.

The debug channel lets users simulate I/O signals, including streaming audio, text and other data types, for processing and a graphical user interface. The payoff is an intuitive view into the system that helps designers exploit Eclipse plug-ins for bringing embedded code to the desktop. As for the upgrade's improved integration to the Nucleus BridgePoint UML suite and profiler software, this promises to help move designs closer toward deployment without leaving the Eclipse environment.

Nucleus EDGE software also contains an advanced project manager, including an editor and builder, that helps to automate the build process. With it, for example, design engineers can set up one or more build environments by specifying the compiler and build options, thus affording full control over multiple projects and allowing for quick and easy revisions to their system.

Also, by adhering to the open Eclipse platform, the Nucleus debugger gives users several debugging environments. For instance, host-based debugging lets software developers start coding early, before final hardware is available, by running their application on a host machine. Later, using instruction set simulation and on-chip debugging via a JTAG port, users can run "live" optimized code in the same environment.

Licenses for the complete Nucleus development suite begin at $3,000 per seat.
