Mentor Graphics Corporation Announces Nucleus RTOS for Wearable Devices

Mentor Graphics Corporation announced the Nucleus real time operating system (RTOS) targeting high-performance, next-generation applications for wearable embedded devices designed for medical, fitness, security, safety and other sectors. The introduction of new multicore system-on-chip (SoC) architectures targeting wearable devices with Internet of Things (IoT) features requires an operating system that has a framework tailored to meet new system requirements. The Nucleus RTOS [1] framework for smart wearable devices connects to other smart devices, gateways, or directly to the cloud. Optimized for size, performance, and power efficiency in unicore or multicore SoCs, the Nucleus RTOS is the first embedded operating system to provide a power management and processor lifecycle framework to maximize wearable device battery life. The Nucleus RTOS provides memory space partitioning in both high-performance microprocessor units (MPU) and resource-constrained microcontroller units (MCU) to support software updates and upgrades in deployed systems. The Nucleus RTOS includes a rich IPv4/v6 networking stack, M2M protocols, and security for IoT applications and cloud connectivity. Multicore Framework for Inter-process Communication and Processor Life Cycle: wearable SoCs increasingly combine application-class and microcontroller-class cores onto a single device to consolidate heterogeneous operating environments within a single application. The Nucleus RTOS includes the embedded industry's first complete heterogeneous multicore framework " a clean-room implementation of functionality of "virtIO", "remoteproc", and "rpmsg." This framework enables developers to seamlessly integrate the Nucleus RTOS, Linux®, and bare metal-based applications onto a single SoC including inter-process communication (IPC), resource sharing, and processor life cycle control for wearable devices. Developers can control the boot-up and shut-down of individual cores on an SoC, allowing wearable and IoT applications to maximize compute performance or minimize power consumption based on the use-case. The Nucleus RTOS also incorporates a wide range of standards-compliant networking and communication protocols designed for wearable devices with support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy, and 6LoWPAN over 802.15.4 on an array of supported chipsets. Nucleus Power Management Framework Extends Battery Life: Battery life is critical for connected devices and the new generation of wearable products places new demands on power consumption reduction due to shrinking hardware resources and increasing software complexity. Built from the ground up, the Nucleus power management framework manages the power state for each peripheral, set of peripherals, or the entire wearable system by using simple high-level application programming interface (API) calls. When changing power states, the power management framework allows coordinated control of processor modes, operating frequencies, and peripheral device operation. Space Partitioning for Device Provisioning: the Nucleus process model is a lightweight approach that provides space partitioning to create protected memory regions that isolate and protect application, middleware and kernel subsystems. Space partitioning enhances reliability and provides the framework to load new applications using cloud services, or to partition large algorithms into smaller components using a just-in-time (JIT) methodology. For devices with limited memory resources, the Nucleus process model efficiently uses memory by loading and unloading software to limit the resident executing code to only the modules necessary at any given moment in time.

Mentor Graphics Corp. Announces Delivery of Three New PADS® Family Products

Mentor Graphics Corp. announced the delivery of three new PADS® family products starting at unprecedented pricing of $5,000 to address the advancing needs of the independent engineer. The new PADS family provides for the wide spectrum of electronics complexity by combining ease of learning and use, characteristic of previous PADS products, with high-productivity design and analysis technologies and unprecedented price-performance value. Now the independent engineer has affordable access to the capabilities that distinguish the Mentor Graphics portfolio and enable higher design productivity, enhanced product quality, and cost and design cycle reduction. These independent engineers are typically part of a small to mid-sized company, or members of an isolated team within a large enterprise (e.g. building prototypes, validating reference designs, and performing manufacturability studies), and perform the complete design, analysis and manufacturing data delivery of printed circuit board (PCB) electronic products. In the past, for engineers doing complex design, their only option was to look at enterprise solutions, and for many, these solutions were out of their reach due to budget and heavy infrastructure requirements. As demands increase for the efficient design of electronic products, the burden often falls on independent engineers to perform the complete process but current lower-priced offerings run out of steam and do not support their complete needs. The design process can often include more than schematic entry and layout of the PCB and may require analysis such as signal integrity, thermal, design-for-manufacturability, and power distribution network integrity. As well, depending on the company, the complexity of the end-product can vary from relatively simple to extremely complex. With the delivery of the three new PADS products (Standard, Standard Plus and Professional) starting at $5,000 including support, Mentor has combined classic PADS product ease of use with three levels of design technology at affordable pricing. This effectively creates a new category of PCB design solutions. The new PADS offerings leverage technologies found in the Mentor Graphics® Xpedition product, to tackle the most advanced design complexity challenges. The Mentor® integration of these technologies into easy-to-use products meets critical needs for an independent engineer with broad design and analysis responsibility as they may only occasionally use a tool in the design process and they are required to quickly and efficiently employ the tool then proceed to the next step in the process.

Mentor Graphics Corp. Announces the New Calibre xACT™ Parasitic Extraction Platform

Mentor Graphics Corp. announced the new Calibre® xACT™ parasitic extraction platform that addresses a wide spectrum of analog and digital extraction needs, including 14nm FinFET, while minimizing guesswork and setup efforts for IC designers. The Calibre xACT platform delivers the best combination of accuracy and turnaround time (TAT) by automatically optimizing its extraction techniques for the customer's specific process node, application, design size, and extraction objectives. Customers using the Calibre xACT platform for parasitic extraction have experienced improvements in turnaround time as high as 10X, while meeting the most stringent accuracy requirements. Samsung has worked extensively with Mentor Graphics on the development and qualification of the Calibre xACT platform for 14nm, and used it during technology development because of the high accuracy it provides. The Calibre xACT product's ability to employ a single rule deck for a range of extraction applications allows customers to get the accuracy and fast TAT they need without having to manually modify their rule decks or tool configuration. Circuit designers have to wrestle with performance versus accuracy throughout the design cycle. Parasitic extraction is no different. With the process nodes using more complex FinFET devices, design engineers are pushing for tighter accuracy, while also needing higher performance and capacity for billion transistor designs. In fact, all process nodes are seeing growing complexity with the mix of memory, analog, standard cell, and custom digital content in modern ICs. This complexity poses a range of different challenges for extraction tools. To meet these requirements the Calibre xACT platform uses a combination of compact model, field solver and efficient multi-CPU scaling technologies to ensure robust accuracy as well as turnaround performance needed to meet schedule deadlines. The Calibre xACT extraction platform is integrated with the entire Calibre product line for a seamless verification flow, including the Calibre nmLVS™ product for complete transistor-level modeling, and the Calibre xACT 3D product for targeted, extreme-accuracy extraction applications. It also interoperates with third-party design environments and formats to ensure compatibility with existing design and simulation flows.
