Accelerated Technology, a Mentor Graphics division, announced an extension to its Nucleus USB software. According to the press release, the new Nucleus USB Host Power class driver helps embedded developers easily manage a UPS to provide backup power and protection in high-performance embedded computer systems via USB.

Typical applications that use the Nucleus USB Host Power class driver are mission critical ones that require battery backup and energy conservation in the event of power failure, the company said. These systems rely on a UPS to provide protection due to power surges, spikes, lightning and other power disturbances.

Accelerated Tech explained that since USB offers a simple plug-and play interface, higher data transfer rates and greater flexibility in terms of hot-swapping, it is rapidly being adopted by UPS systems to streamline and standardize ways for an electronic system to manage a UPS. This includes controlling power quality and automating backup and shutdown procedures for supplying needed power and preserving energy.

The Nucleus USB Host Power class driver has been released for use with Nucleus USB Host stack, which are both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 compliant. Already available, licenses for the Nucleus USB software start at $14,995 and licenses for the class drivers begin at $2,995.
