Nucleus BridgePoint

Nucleus BridgePoint is the most complete suite of UML tools for the development of real-time embedded systems, accelerating development by providing for re-use of existing IP and promoting quality. Because Nucleus BridgePoint is based on a subset of UML called Executable and Translatable UML, or xtUML, 100% of the source code for an embedded system can be generated directly from the high-level design. This eliminates many of the problems with traditional UML development methodologies such as the necessity of manually changing code every time a change is made to the model.

The benefits of Nucleus BridgePoint have been proven in real applications. It has been used to develop highly demanding systems such as launch vehicles, lifecritical medical systems, fault-tolerant telecom systems, resource-constrained consumer electronics and distributed, discrete-event HLA simulation systems.


Improve Quality Without Sacrificing Performance
Code efficiency and code size are very important to embedded developers. The translation phase of Nucleus BridgePoint is optimized to produce efficient code. During test cases created by our customers, our model compilers have been proven to generate code that performs on par with hand written code. One example of such data, provided by a customer, shows the memory usage of the same application built three different ways: by hand, with Nucleus BridgePoint and with a competitor's tool. Another customer ran both their hand-coded application and their Nucleus BridgePoint application through a tool to compare software quality. The Nucleus BridgePoint application was very comparable on CPU performance and memory usage, but it surpassed the hand-coded application in quality areas like stability and maintainability.
