Mentor Graphics takes over CodeSourcery
Embedded specialist Mentor Graphics, known mainly for its Nucleus OS real-time operating system for ARM, Cell and other mainstream processors as well as for Systems on a Chip (SoCs), has announced that it will take over CodeSourcery. CodeSourcery principally develops tool chains and development environments for ARM and other embedded platforms. It's probably most well-known product is the commercial Sourcery G++ platform, which is based on the GNU-C / C++ compiler and the GNU Debugger, along with various other open source tools.
Just recently, in July, Mentor Graphics took over embedded Linux specialist Embedded Alley, enabling it to complement its own Nucleus RTOS with Embedded Alley's Embedded Linux and the Android SDK that Embedded Alley had only announced in April 2010. CodeSourcery's development environment will further extend the Mentor Graphics portfolio.
