Gemalto Select Keil Tools for ARM Processor-based Smartcard Development

04 October 2011

Keil MDK-ARM™ development environment has been selected by Gemalto as the toolchain for all its ARM processor-based smartcard development.

"Software development for smartcards requires advanced tools from partners, such as ARM, that provide an environment above and beyond that of standard tool chains," said Frederic Vasnier, SVP Telecom, product delivery & support, Gemalto. "Keil MDK is the right product to enable Gemalto to successfully write, verify, and deploy demanding applications." "We are very pleased to be working so closely with Gemalto," said John Cornish, Executive Vice president, System Design Division, ARM. "Keil tools have a long history of supporting sensitive applications, such as smartcards. This latest agreement with Gemalto endorses our focus and commitment to this area of the market."

The Keil MDK-ARM has been specifically tailored to meet the stringent demands of software development on ARM SecurCore™ devices, such as the SC300 processor. MDK features the ARM Compilation tools, the µVision® IDE/debugger and advanced simulation models of ARM SecurCore processors, which enables Gemalto to more easily develop and verify secure applications. Keil products from ARM include C/C++ compilers, debuggers, integrated environments, RTOS, simulation models, and evaluation boards for ARM, Cortex-M, Cortex-R4, 8051, C166, and 251 processor families.
