Mouser Electronics, has announced it has entered into a global distribution agreement with SOMNIUM Technologies, a company focused on evolving software development tools to a new level, solving real problems faced by embedded developers.
The SOMNIUM Technologies product line, now available from Mouser Electronics, provides developers with the company’s Device-aware Resequencing Tools (DRT) software that supports devices from leading semiconductor manufacturers, including Atmel, NXP, STMicroelectronics and others.
DRT is fully source-compatible with industry-standard GNU (including the latest C11 and C++14 dialects and C++ exception handling), and offers exceptional code generation and enhanced debug features. DRT analyses the whole program, identifying all instruction and data sequences and the interactions between them. Knowledge of the device’s memory system and ARM Cortex pipeline are used to intelligently resequence the program, resulting in code that is optimised for energy, size, performance and efficiency in a fully automated process that requires no manual intervention. DRT’s patented resequencing optimisations typically provide 20 per cent smaller code, 15 per cent higher performance, and 30 per cent energy savings compared to other tools. Developers using SOMNIUM’s DRT products can reach the market faster with a wider choice of microcontroller variants and potential reductions in bill of materials (BOM) costs.
The SOMNIUM DRT Atmel Studio Extension enhances the Atmel Studio 6.2 and Atmel Studio 7 integrated development platform (IDP) to provide superior C and C++ code generation quality for Atmel SMART microcontrollers. DRT provides an alternative toolchain flavor, making SOMNIUM’s patented resequencing optimisations available to Atmel SMART software developers, resulting in smaller and faster energy-efficient code without requiring changes to the source code.
The SOMNIUM DRT NXP Edition supports NXP LPC and Kinetis devices and is available on Windows or Linux hosts. DRT is the ideal upgrade path from Kinetis Design Studio (KDS) and CodeWarrior, with unique features to save development time and money, including the only automatic KDS and CodeWarrior project importer. DRT NXP Edition offers a seamless and automatic upgrade path from entry-level tools and is fully compatible with LPCOpen, Kinetis Software Development Kit, Sensor Fusion, Processor Expert, and other software enablement solutions.
SOMNIUM DRT Cortex M-IDE is the professional software development environment for ARM Cortex-M devices, combining support for Atmel SMART, NXP LPC and Kinetis and STMicroelectronics’ STM32 devices in a single product. DRT is the only product that offers a seamless and automatic upgrade path from entry-level tools including Atollic TrueSTUDIO, CodeWarrior (GNU and non-GNU projects), Kinetis Design Studio, LPCXpresso, and System Workbench for STM32.
