Accelerated Technology, a Mentor Graphics division, announced a new version of its EDGE Tool Suite which supports Eclipse 3.1, the latest version of the open framework. The EDGE version 1.2 suite aims to provide embedded systems developers with an integrated tool solution that includes an integrated development environment (IDE), debugger, profiler, compiler, unified modeling language tools, JTAG connection device and prototyping tools. The tool suite supports the ARM, MicroBlaze, MIPS, Nios II and PowerPC family of processors.

New features of the EDGE software include dynamic variant support, which allows embedded developers to target variants of currently supported processor families. New target support packages assist users in applying the tools to new embedded development boards. The product also has a fully automated function that allows the debugger to connect to an embedded target.

The EDGE Profiler software, part of the EDGE suite, previously used a serial interface to move collected data from the target to the host for analysis. Now, the EDGE Profiler uses an Ethernet channel to communicate with the target board. The Ethernet channel uses the IP stack so that the EDGE Profiler can gather data from remote locations without requiring a direct connection between the host and the target.

The EDGE Profiler now also contains downloadable filters, allowing developers to collect only the specific data required for diagnosing a problem. An added benefit of using the filters is that data collection can be changed dynamically. The target agent doesn't have to recompile to change captured events.

Licenses for the complete EDGE Tools software package begin at $3,000 per seat.
