MOTOROLA'S 68000 FAMILY SUPPORTS SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT SYSTEMS' FREEFORM PRODUCT FAMILY

 MOTOROLA'S 68000 FAMILY SUPPORTS SOFTWARE
 DEVELOPMENT SYSTEMS' FREEFORM PRODUCT FAMILY
 AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola's High Performance Microprocessor Division today announced the support of Software Development Systems' complete source-level debugging environment, FreeForm. Coupled with Motorola's superior microprocessors, this toolset ensures a highly integrated and competitive environment for 68000 product development.
 "To ensure that developers of 68000-based products are provided with the most sophisticated and high-performance tools available, it is essential for tools vendors and Motorola to work closely together," said Jim Reinhart, Motorola's manager of M68000 marketing and applications. "This endorsement represents one in a series of steps Motorola will be taking over the next few months to establish tighter relationships with our third party vendors."
 Software Development Systems, an avid supporter of the 68000 Family, recently re-introduced FreeForm, a source-level debugging environment for embedded systems development. The FreeForm environment is now separated into three different source-level debugging products -- FreeForm/Simulator, FreeForm/Emulator and FreeForm/Monitor spanning the entire embedded-processing development cycle.
 FreeForm offers an easy-to-use and highly-integrated debugging environment that works as a software simulator and processor modelling tool when hardware is unavailable; an in-circuit emulation debugger when the hardware is not fully debugged; and a target monitor-based debugger once the hardware is fully debugged.
 FreeForm/Simulator is the first software simulator for 68000 Family microprocessors that completely models the internal workings of a specific microprocessor, thus giving it the ability to generate comprehensive instruction-set timings at impressive speeds.
 FreeForm/Emulator brings FreeForm's source-level debugging capabilities to the popular Applied Microsystems line of in-circuit emulators. This combination of an in-circuit emulator and source-level debugger supports the 68000, 68020, 68030 and 68302.
 FreeForm/Monitor is a low-cost, powerful debugger that communicates with a small monitor program (supplied with the package) residing on the actual target hardware. FreeForm/Monitor is an ideal corporate-wide embedded debugging tool because it can be placed on the desktop of every software and hardware engineer.
 All three debugging products are completely integrated with Software Development Systems' CrossCode C ANSI-compatible optimizing C compiler package which supports all 68000 Family microprocessors, including the 68040 and 68302. The FreeForm products contain a new windowed interface compatible with both UNIX and MS-DOS.
 Software Development Systems is offering its FreeForm products for $2,200 for MS-DOS and $2,700 for a node-locked version on most UNIX systems. In addition, floating licenses are also available under UNIX.
 Software Development Systems is one of the world's leading suppliers of embedded software development tools for Motorola 68000 Family microprocessors. Established in 1984, the company specializes in 68000 Family processors, and offers some of the most comprehensive support policies in the embedded software industry. Its products include CrossCode C, FreeForm/Monitor, FreeForm/Simulator, FreeForm/Emulator and the entire UniWare product line. Software Development Systems is a leader in reliable and quality software tools, and supports its software products with a fully responsive customer support and engineering staff.
 Having 1991 worldwide sales exceeding $3.6 billion, Motorola's Semiconductor Products Sector is the largest U.S.-based broad line supplier of semiconductors, with a balanced portfolio of more than 50,000 devices. Motorola is one of the world's leading providers of electronic equipment, systems, components, and services for global markets. Products include two-way radios, pagers, and telepoint systems, cellular telephone systems, semiconductors, defense and aerospace electronics, automotive and industrial electronic equipment, computers, data communications, and information processing and handling equipment.
 Motorola was a winner of the first Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 1988, in recognition of its superior company-wide quality management process.
