and more. As part of its initial expansion, engineers can now find additional

Semiconductor, Renesas Electronics America Inc., Interniche Technologies Inc.
and Rowebots Research Inc.

The Embedded Software Store accelerates software innovation for embedded
applications by enabling users to easily locate available software supporting
a variety of CPU cores.

“When we embarked on this venture with the Embedded Software Store more than
two years ago, our vision was to achieve an open marketplace for embedded
software for the design community – and we have come a long way. We are now
ready to get to the next level,” said Tim Barber, senior vice president of
design chain business development at Avnet Electronics Marketing. “Now, it is
important for the store to become an open community and enable other CPU ISAs
– at the same time, we remain committed in our support of ARM ecosystem
vendors.”

“The move to expand the Embedded Software Store with support of a broader base
of CPU architectures provides customers more options and choices for their
embedded designs,” said Ritesh Tyagi, vice president of marketing for Renesas
Electronics America. “Customers now have easy access to IP from partners
supporting Renesas MCUs to help them quickly and effectively build
differentiated solutions on top of the company’s world-leading MCU hardware
platform.”

“Whether you are a networking, consumer, industrial or automotive systems
designer, Freescale is committed to providing solutions that work for you,
meeting both your design and performance specifications,” said John Anguiano,
senior manager for Partner, Channel, and Sales Enablement Marketing at
Freescale. “The Embedded Software Store has been an important option for
customers seeking software supporting our products, and this latest
development brings an outstanding suite of options to the design community as
they continue to innovate on next generation technology.”
