embWiSe Technologies Pvt. Ltd has announced availability of its SDIOWorx software stack on the Mentor Graphics Nucleus RTOS. embWiSe also provides an SDIO-Wi-Fi solution for Marvell 88W8686 802.11b/g chipset, integrated with the SDIOWorx.

The SDIOWorx with the SDIO-Wi-Fi package under the Nucleus RTOS allows semiconductor and the device vendors to add SDIO and Wi-Fi functionality in their designs and help mitigate the challenges associated with the engineering lead-time and time to market. The SDIOWorx package under the Nucleus RTOS is targeted for the mobile feature phone and consumer electronic devices like portable media players, digital still cameras and any other converged wireless device.

The SDIOWorx package for Nucleus RTOS includes: the SD/SDIO/MMC host controller driver for the on-chip SD host controller, SDIO stack,SD/MMC/MMC4.x/SD high capacity storage drivers and the SDIO-Wi-Fi driver for Marvell SD8686 chipset.

"Mentor's Nucleus RTOS is the most widely used embedded OS in rapidly growing mobile and CE device markets due to its high performance, low resource demands, and flexible licensing models" said G.Srinivasan, managing director at embWiSe. "With the support of SDIOWorx on Nucleus, device designers get an off-the-shelf, ready to deploy SDIO solution, at a price they can afford".

"SDIO is becoming increasingly important in a wide range of consumer devices," said Glenn Perry, general manager of Mentor Graphics embedded systems division. "With today's announcement our customers can expect to incorporate SDIO technology more rapidly into their Nucleus-based products."
