CAMBRIDGE, UK – Sept. 16, 2002 – ARM [(LSE: ARM); (Nasdaq: ARMHY)], the industry's leading provider of 16/32-bit embedded RISC processor solutions, today announced a range of new components for its RealView™ family of development tools: a new In-Circuit Emulator (ICE), new Trace products and a significant upgrade to its RealView Debugger™ product.
ARM® development tools are seen as a leading indicator of its Partners' advanced research and development activity, due to the long lead times associated with developing system-on-chip (SoC) products. ARM has seen a steady rise in its development tools sales over the last three years.
"Development tools are one of the most critical elements in the design cycle when developing high-performance SoCs and ARM is committed to supporting our Partners in every way possible," said Derek Morris, general manager, Development Systems, ARM. "Our RealView development solution comprises all of the components necessary to aid in the efficient development of ARM core-based products. Our new ICE and Trace products, along with the enhanced RealView Debugger tool, will help them continue in this development and while reducing the time-to-market of these products."
The new RealViewICE™ and RealView Trace™ tools, and updated Debugger tools allow developers to optimize SoCs for specific applications by looking more closely inside the system. In order to achieve greater levels of performance, developers need greater visibility into complex systems in order for them to make fast and accurate modifications before the product is manufactured.
About the ARM RealView Development Solution
RealView tools provide designers with the best solution for creating and analyzing systems based on ARM technology. They are designed and used by the same engineers who created the ARM architecture. ARM tools are exposed to the highest level of pre- and post-silicon evaluation and development. As a result, the ARM RealView development solution provides the broadest possible range of support for future ARM architectures and derivatives. ARM RealView tools are fully integrated and provide a complete solution to any design or SoC integration challenge, giving the developer higher confidence in first silicon and a faster time-to-market.
The complete ARM RealView development solution includes:
ARM is the industry's leading provider of 16/32-bit embedded RISC microprocessor solutions. The company licenses its high-performance, low-cost, power-efficient RISC processors, peripherals, and system-on-chip designs to leading international electronics companies. ARM also provides comprehensive support required in developing a complete system. ARM's microprocessor cores are rapidly becoming a volume RISC standard in such markets as portable communications, hand-held computing, multimedia digital consumer and embedded solutions.
