Mentor Graphics Corp. has revealed that NXP Semiconductors is now part of the Mentor Embedded Nucleus Innovate Program. According to the company, participants in the program now have access to board support packages for NXP Semiconductor microcontroller devices.

The Nucleus Innovate Program targets businesses with less than $1M in annual revenue in order to help them kick-start their embedded development projects. Qualified companies can accelerate their embedded system development with software provided at no cost, including the Nucleus Real Time Operating System (RTOS), the Sourcery CodeBench GNU toolchain and now, 32bit RISC ARM-based board support packages (BSP) for NXP's LPC family of MCUs, detailed the company.

Board support packages are available for NXP's LPC 4300 devices with BSPs soon available for LPC1700 and LPC1800 families. The range of NXP MCUs, from a global semiconductor leader and top supplier of ARM Cortex-M MCUs, allows users to maximise any embedded applications where speed and computational performance are essential, indicated the company. Applications for NXP 32bit devices include medical, industrial and portable products. When combined with the Nucleus ReadyStart platform, embedded developers have a complete embedded environment to develop their system designs with greater efficiency and productivity.

The Nucleus Innovate Program is geared for applications where small footprint, high performance and low power matter. Customers using 32bit MCUs can apply the Nucleus RTOS and Mentor Embedded tool capabilities with ease and assurance.
