Mentor Graphics Inc. has released an application reference design that is claimed to speed up the development of multimedia devices such as portable media players, personal navigation devices, mobile Internet devices, mobile phones and other peripherals.

The company said the Nucleus Platform Media Player is patterned from Mentor's Nucleus OS, a user interface engine and a wide range of development tools.

"In the fiercely competitive multimedia markets, device makers must stay focused on innovation to differentiate their products," said Neil Henderson, general manager, embedded systems division, Mentor, in a statement. "The single-vendor reference tool helps developers to speed up the implementation of core functionality so they can spend more time on differentiating features," he added.

Mentor said it has collaborated with major software vendors to deliver value-added capacities on the Nucleus Platform Media Player and these include VisualOn, Arphic and Arkamys.
