An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release MCUs for integration in factory automation systems from Renesas Technology, which we summarised at the time by saying "Renesas Electronics has released two 32-bit All Flash microcontrollers (MCUs) for integration in factory automation (FA) systems, such as motion drives, servo drives and inverters.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Green Hills software supports Octeon II processors from Green Hills Software: "Green Hills Software's multicore embedded software solutions are available for Cavium Networks' Octeon II range of multicore processors.".

In February 2010, we covered the news from Enea Embedded Technology - take a look at RTOS central to Enea's support for LSI Axxia range which says: "Enea has announced that Enea OSE Multicore Edition, a hybrid-kernel real-time operating system (RTOS), will be the centrepiece of its support for the new LSI Axxia communication processor range.".

Take a look also at the news release from Adacore, Gnat Pro Ada develops apps for LynxOS 4.x and 5.0, as well as ARM launches Cortex-A9 hard macros from ARM, and SMT703 adds flexibility to Wimax development from Sundance Multiprocessor Technology.
