Mentor Graphics is now supporting the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC devices with its embedded tools and software portfolio.

The embedded software support includes Linux and Android OS, Nucleus real-time operating system (RTOS) and Mentor’s Embedded Hypervisor.

Scot Morrison, general manager of the platforms business unit, Mentor Graphics Embedded Systems division, writes:

“Dealing with the complexities of today’s heterogeneous multicore systems, Xilinx customers can realize faster time to embedded development and system performance with minimised risk using our solution.”

The tools support development and debug under a single umbrella of licensing, support, inter-core communication and management, software integration, tools, and professional services.

Ramine Roane, senior director of Software Product Marketing, Xilinx writes:

“This combination will allow system developers to more easily and quickly deploy complex system designs.”

The Xilinx Zynq UltraScale MPSoC integrates ARM Cortex-A53 64-bit processors with hardware virtualization and ARM dual Cortex-R5 processors for real-time and safety-critical applications.

There are also hard and soft acceleration engines; and on-chip programmable logic for user-defined task acceleration.

Mentor Graphics will be releasing various embedded development products to support the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC product within 2016.
