Accelerated Technology, a Mentor Graphics division, recently announced that VIA Telecom Inc., a developer of CDMA chipsets, has extended its license agreement for the Nucleus RTOS to support VIA's CDMA baseband processors.

The Nucleus PLUS RTOS is integrated into VIA Telecom's single-chip CBP4, CBP5 and CBP6 family of CDMA baseband processors, which also features an ARM7TDMI core.

Accelerated Tech's solid and flexible Nucleus PLUS RTOS is designed for developing the broad capabilities that consumers require from multimedia mobile phones, including digital cameras, gaming applications, Web browsing with Secure Sockets Layer Internet connection, and complicated settings (such as ring tone options, extended calendars and currency converters).

"The combination of the VIA Telecom CDMA chipset and the Nucleus RTOS offers a baseband platform that makes it easy for cellphone vendors to start developing their next generation of CDMA-based phones," said Glen Johnson, product marketing manager, Accelerated Tech. "The reliability and proven track record of the Nucleus RTOS in the cellphone industry, coupled with the attractive royalty-free business model, offers the most compelling software solution for cellphone manufacturers today."

Members of VIA Telecom's single-chip CBP4, CBP5 and CBP6 family of CDMA baseband processors promise to deliver a complete 3G cdma2000 Release 0 solution. The processors are backwards-compatible to IS-95B, and integrates mixed-signal analog and digital functionality with a seamless interface to multiple RF components from the industry's leading suppliers.

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