Mentor Graphics has introduced their third generation flagship Nucleus® Real Time Operating System (RTOS).
This Nucleus RTOS adds:
- Built-in power management capabilities that use hardware features such as Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS)
- Certified IPv6 Ready networking stack and security protocols
- Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee support
The Nucleus RTOS readily supports a comprehensive set of architectures and processor families, including ARM, MIPS, Power PC, and SuperH, as well as many DSPs and FPGA soft processor cores.
"Mentor's Nucleus RTOS targeting connectivity and low power demonstrates Mentor's understanding of issues critical to today's MCU-based designs," said Miguel Morales, director of marketing, Stellaris Cortex-M MCUs, Texas Instruments. "The scalable technology, ease of configuration and small footprint makes the Nucleus RTOS an ideal solution for designers using Stellaris microcontrollers."
The Nucleus RTOS is used in more than 2.3 billion mobile handsets. It is well known as a highly efficient and reliable operating system.
