Accelerated Technology's EDE Benefits From New Features in Microsoft Visual Studio .NET

11/19/2002 - Accelerated Technology®, the Embedded Systems Division of Mentor Graphics, announced that its code|lab Embedded Development Environment (EDE) has been upgraded for compatibility with Microsoft® Visual Studio .NET®. Developers can build their embedded application in the code|labTM EDE v2 and take advantage of the newest enhancements from Visual Studio technology including support for Visual C# (a programming language derived from C and C++), enhanced editor functionality, refined object browser and advanced window handling.

Earlier this year, Microsoft introduced Visual Studio .NET, a software tool used to rapidly build enterprise-scale Active Server Pages (ASP) or Web applications and high performance desktop applications. As a plug-in extension to Visual Studio .NET, code|lab EDE v2 implements the newest Visual Studio features while maintaining all of the functionality of its previous version. Additional enhancements that code|lab EDE v2 supports are easier access to breakpoints, a more customizable build process and better support for team-based development.

"It's important that we maintain compatibility with the latest enhancements to Microsoft Visual Studio," said Robert Day, director of marketing for the Embedded Systems Division of Mentor Graphics. "Because it is handled as a plug-in to Visual Studio, code|lab EDE continues to be the state-of-the-art embedded IDE that our customers have come to rely on."

Accelerated Technology's code|lab EDE is the foundation for the code|lab Embedded Developer Suite. code|lab is a comprehensive set of software and hardware components that works out-of-the-box in a configuration that is customized to meet the stringent combination of requirements for individual product designers. code|lab gives developers a flexible and seamless software and hardware tool suite in which to build their embedded application from start to finish and get it to market quickly.

Availability and Pricing
Available now, the U.S. price per seat for code|lab EDE v2 as a standalone product starts at $695.00. A copy of Microsoft Visual Studio .NET is provided free for domestic customers only. code|lab EDE is also available in a variety of code|lab Software and Hardware/Software Developer's Kits, which include high level debug tools and compilation suites.
