8/4/2003 - Accelent Systems Inc., a leading enabler of embedded devices and Gold-level member of the Microsoft Windows Embedded Partner Program, announces release of the Schema Development Suite, version 4.0. Schema Development Suite enables rapid development of production-ready Board Support Packages (BSP) that can be integrated into Microsoft operating system tools, including Microsoft Platform Builder.

New additions to Schema Development Suite 4.0 include support for Microsoft Windows CE .NET 4.2, Microsoft Mobile 2003 Software for Pocket PCs, Texas Instrument OMAP1510/5910 processor and a technology preview of the Samsung 2410 processor. Major functional and usability enhancements to the CoreLinx integrated development environment promote increased intuitive flow. CoreLinxTM, in conjunction with Microsoft’s Platform Builder, is used to configure, customize and build the executable images from the Schema product offering.

The Schema Development Suite 4.0 continues to include source code for the OAL and over 100 device drivers. Partial source is provided for the bootloader. New peripheral chips supported in this release include AMD’s MirrorBit Flash Memory, GSM RIL for Chi Mei's module, Cypress’ SL811HS External USB Host, Epson’s S1D13806 External Video Controller, Intel’s Persistent Storage Manager and M-Systems’ Mobile DiskOnChip. This source code accelerates mobile and embedded device development in markets such as consumer, telematics, industrial automation, medical, portable data terminals and gaming to name a few.

Schema Development Suite is rapidly becoming the tool of choice for OEM and ODMs. Recent products developed using the Schema Development Suite include the Toshiba e350/e355 Series and the Hitachi G1000.

Schema’s support for multiple processors, operating systems and peripheral chips allows development teams to benefits from a common code base for an entire product family or series. Reduction in support cost, improved code manageability and proven, qualified code are just some of the benefits of a common code base strategy. In addition, Accelent Systems is continuously adding support into the Schema Development Suite tool for new processors, operating systems and peripheral chips. This steady growth of the feature list enables a developer to easily add new features to existing products or develop new products with the latest technology.
