NEC Technologies (UK) Ltd to Use ARM RealView Developer Suite Technology.

READING, England and CAMBRIDGE, England, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- - NEC Technologies adopt industry-leading ARM RealView Developer Suite compiler technology

ARM RealView tools are gathering significant Partner endorsement. NEC Technologies (UK) Ltd., a part of NEC Corporation, is a world leader in the mobile phone market.

Further evidence that when evaluating for advanced tools requirements, leading product developers, such as NEC, are selecting ARM RealView tools to deliver optimum solutions for developing ARM core-based systems .

NEC Technologies (UK) Ltd. have concluded that RealView compilation tools can deliver reduced cost product, through smaller memory requirements, while providing enhanced user experience, through higher code performance.

Development Systems will remain a significant revenue stream for ARM as Partners use time and cost saving tools to create advanced products.

NEC Technologies (UK) Ltd. [NT(UK)], a part of NEC Corporation [(Nasdaq: NIPNY), (LSE: NEC), (TSE:6701)], a leading developer of mobile devices and Internet communication technology, and ARM [(LSE:ARM); (Nasdaq:ARMHY)], the industry's leading provider of 16/32-bit embedded RISC processor solutions, today announced that NEC has adopted the ARM(R) RealView(R) Developer Suite RVCT compilation tools enabling them full access to the industry-leading compiler tools technology for mobile phone development. The RVCT compilation tools have been adopted for ongoing mobile phone developments to reduce cost and enhance the overall user experience.

NEC Technologies (UK) Ltd., will use the RVCT compilation tools to quickly and efficiently develop applications for advanced, ARM Powered(R) mobile handsets based on the C and C++ programming languages. The industry-leading RVCT compilation tools minimise code footprint while maximising run-time performance, enabling significant memory and power savings. NT(UK)'s use of the RVCT compilation tools marks a significant commitment to the ARM architecture and the tools provided by ARM. . "Embedded software designers need to create highly reliable systems while maintaining low system-build cost. Development tools optimised for the microprocessor architecture are now an essential part of this process particularly in the development of applications using modern high-level languages such as C++," said Ian Johnson, product manager, RealView Solutions, ARM. "ARM offers an extensive portfolio of development tools and NT(UK)'s adoption of the RVCT compilation tools demonstrates the value and confidence that OEMs place in our development solutions."

"The ARM RealView development tools are widely regarded in the industry as the tools of choice for developing applications for ARM microprocessor-based devices," said Tim Woodruff, Software Department manager, NT(UK). "ARM tools will enable us to continue to develop innovative and compelling applications easily and quickly while maintaining excellent code performance, reducing system cost and extending battery life."

About the ARM RealView Development Tools ARM RealView software development and system prototyping tools provide chip designers, product designers and application developers with integrated tools solutions for creating and analysing systems based on the ARM technology. Unlike any other development tools on the market today, RealView tools have been developed in parallel with the ARM processors and ARM on-chip debug technology, providing the broadest range of support for present and future ARM architectures. The RealView tools provide a complete solution to any design or system-on-chip integration challenge, giving the developer higher confidence in first silicon and a faster time-to-market.

The heart of the ARM RealView development tool solutions is the ARM Developer Suite(tm) software. Supporting all ARM cores, this fully integrated package delivers leading edge software compilation, debug and simulation capabilities. The RealView Developer Suite software is complemented by hardware debug products, RealView ICE and RealView Trace, which enable connection to real-silicon or emulation hardware.

The RealView Versatile and RealView Integrator(tm) families of modular development and prototyping boards shorten product development design cycles by enabling rapid creation of prototypes using off the shelf components. In collaboration with the Partnership, ARM manufactures a range of RealView Developer Kits which are targeted for use with specific Partner products.
