Mentor Graphics Enhanced XRAY Debugger Available Immediately For The Tensilica Xtensa Microprocessor

6/17/2002 - Tensilica Inc., the configurable and extensible microprocessor pioneer, today announced the immediate availability of the Mentor Graphics® XRAY® Debugger for Tensilica's Xtensa IV processor core. The tool provides a comprehensive debug environment for the thousands of unique processor configurations that are possible using Tensilica's powerful Xtensa processor architecture. Using the XRAY Debugger, designers can simultaneously verify and debug the application and system software running on one or more Xtensa cores in their embedded system-on-chip (SOC) designs, as well as other industry-standard cores supported by the XRAY debugger environment. "The configurability and extensibility of Tensilica's architecture is enabling customers to integrate multiple, unique Xtensa cores on an SOC as an alternative to complex and costly custom logic," said Larry Przywara, director of strategic alliances at Tensilica. "The integration of Mentor's XRAY Debugger into the Xtensa development environment provides a common interface for all stages of the embedded development process, from simulation to on-chip debug, all built on XRAY technology. Designers benefit from this industry standard tool through improved productivity, reduced development risk and faster time-to-market."
