Mentor Graphics Corporation has announced the release of the Mentor's Embedded Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition product, a native software environment for developing embedded systems pre- and post-silicon.
"Software development and hardware development are deeply intertwined, yet intensely unique disciplines. Asking a software designer to use a hardware design tool is like asking a plumber to install your sink with an electrician's wire cutters," said Glenn Perry, general manager of Mentor Graphics Embedded Software Division.
"It's critical to respect the uniqueness of each discipline and we believe our Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition delivers a true native software environment that deeply leverages our hardware design tool technology."
The Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition product embeds the advanced pre-silicon technology available from the hardware design tool flow, deeply into the native software environment. This yields a significant time-to-market advantage for software development teams by eliminating the valuable time and effort spent learning unfamiliar traditional hardware design tools, the company said.
The Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition tool goes beyond enabling software development ahead of silicon to offer visibility into hardware/software interactions, otherwise unavailable through the limited debug interfaces in actual hardware, the company added.
