MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Next-Generation Software Supports Programming/Debug of Actel IP Processors

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Actel Corporation (NASDAQ: ACTL) today announced the availability of SoftConsole version 2.2, the next-generation free development environment for embedded design. This new version includes enhanced capabilities for debug and the downloading of programs, including a new flash loader, and support for the Microsoft(R) Vista operating system. Leveraging Actel's IGLOO(R) low-power FPGAs and Actel Fusion(R) mixed-signal FPGAs, SoftConsole is a single programming environment that enables software engineers to write and debug C and C++ programs targeted at Actel's portfolio of embedded processors, including ARM(R) Cortex(TM)-M1 and Core8051s.

"System designers using the new SoftConsole version 2.2 with our embedded processor cores will directly benefit from improved usability and faster time-to-market," said Tom Moore, Actel's director of IP engineering. "Actel is the only FPGA provider to offer the ARM Cortex-M1 embedded processor free of licensing and royalties."

SoftConsole version 2.2 is based on familiar and widely used open-source tools, including the CodeSourcery(TM) ARM7(TM) and Cortex-M1 GNU C Compilers (GCC) and GNU Debugger (GDB), Eclipse IDE, and 8051 Small Device C Compiler (SDCC). This complete, comprehensive, and free development environment works seamlessly with Actel's Libero(R) Integrated Design Environment, development kits, and FlashPro3 programmer.
