Accelerated Technology, a Mentor Graphics division, announced the availability of the Nucleus real-time operating system (RTOS) for atmel's microcontroller" target=_blank>at91rm9200 MCU. According to the press release, the combination provides developers with a comprehensive, high-performance integrated solution with which to develop telematics systems, industrial automation, medical systems and point-of-sales terminals.

The ARM-based AT91RM9200 MCU is a high-performance SoC, offering a flexible configuration of on- and off-chip memories together with an extensive set of peripherals for control, communication and data storage purposes. "The AT91RM9200 together with the Nucleus RTOS and the Nucleus middleware products provides all the processing resources to support communications protocols securely, while offering real-time features required in real-time systems.," said Jacko Wilbrink, Atmel's ARM marketing manager.

Robert Day, director of marketing at Accelerated Tech, added, "Our integrated Nucleus middleware software products and drivers are ready to support developers using this device to help them achieve quick product turnaround time."

Alongside the Nucleus RTOS software is a wealth of middleware products for building data storage, connectivity, communication and security applications. The Nucleus FILE management software provides standard-compliant and secure file systems along with device drivers such as CompactFlash and Secure Digital/Multimedia Card (SD/MMC), which is useful for developers building data storage applications. For connectivity applications, the Nucleus USB products enable developers to leverage existing or create new USB devices. The Nucleus USB software includes a series of class driver components that implement functions like mass storage, printing, human interface and communication, which allow developers to incorporate USB into their systems with little programming effort.

For secure communication applications, the Nucleus NET networking products come with a standard set of TCP/IP networking protocols and drivers. And to meet the security needs of today's embedded solutions, the Nucleus NET stack also offers Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) protocols that enable embedded applications to securely communicate with other hosts on the Internet.

The Nucleus EDGE environment, based on the Eclipse platform, provides a suite of plug-ins to Eclipse. Atmel developers now have access to profiling software, compiler tools, debugging software and a UML suite-all within one easy-to-use environment.

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