Accelent Systems Unveils IDE for Intel PXA255, Windows Pocket PC

6/16/2003 - Accelent Systems Inc., a leading enabler of embedded devices, announces the Integrated Development Platform (IDP) for the Intel PXA255 applications processor and Microsoft’s Windows-Powered Pocket PC platform--a powerful combination.

As the newest member of Accelent Systems’ highly acclaimed IDP family of development platforms, the IDP combines the high performance and power efficiencies of the new Intel PXA255 applications processor with the functionality and flexibility of Microsoft® Windows® Pocket PC platform.

The IDP simplifies development by providing:

In addition to the standard components listed above, Accelent Systems offers a source code licensing option that provides access to the device drivers and boot loader source libraries found on the IDP. Armed with this software, developers are able to use the IDP as a basis for porting to their own designs, such as web pads and PDA’s. Using Accelent Systems’ source code not only expands development possibilities but also significantly reduce both time and costs by focusing on product differentiators rather than the low level software.

"The Microsoft Windows Powered Pocket PC software enables mobile customers to stay connected, informed, entertained and in step with their key contacts and projects," said Andy Haon, Director of Product Management for the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft Corp. "As we continue to see new innovations as a result of the platform's flexibility and customization capabilities, and strong interest from device makers to build new Pocket PC devices, Accelent's Integrated Development Platform will enable our hardware partners to bring new, innovative devices to market quickly and cost effectively."

Albert McCabe, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Accelent Systems, states, “we feel the combination of the latest Microsoft and Intel solutions make the IDP one of the most powerful development platforms on the market.” Our customers expect Accelent Systems to provide development tools with the latest technology in the embedded device market. We continue to meet our customers expectations with new product offerings like the Intel PXA255 Pocket PC IDP.”
