(businesspress24) - SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/16/15 -- (NASDAQ: AMD) today announced a new agreement with (NASDAQ: MENT) to now provide customers access to Mentor Embedded Sourcery™ CodeBench Lite for AMD Embedded ARM® solutions alongside AMD x86 Embedded solutions. The agreement strengthens AMD''s technology partnership with Mentor Graphics, a leading maker of embedded software and open source tools, and creates a consistent development ecosystem across processor architectures.

"We are providing the embedded development community the opportunity for choice, as the first company to offer both ARM and x86 processor solutions for low-power and high-performance embedded compute designs," said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Embedded Solutions. "We are excited about our growing technology partnership with Mentor Graphics as this extends the scope of the ecosystem we have beyond our traditional markets. This is a step forward in bolstering the embedded community with open-source tools to help tailor and expand their development."

In 2014, AMD and Mentor Graphics agreed to create an embedded software ecosystem for developers. The Mentor Embedded Sourcery CodeBench product goes beyond just the compiler to provide developers with powerful open source, embedded C/C++ development tools to build, debug, analyze and optimize embedded software. These tools enable developers to build software in complex heterogeneous architectures based on upcoming AMD 64-bit ARM processors including the forthcoming AMD system-on-chip (SOC) (codenamed "Hierofalcon"), in addition to x86 processors including the AMD Embedded G-Series SOC (formerly codenamed "Steppe Eagle") and the 2nd Generation AMD Embedded R-Series APU (formerly codenamed "Bald Eagle").

"Mentor Graphics is excited to extend our technology partnership with AMD given their vision and product portfolio of innovative technologies for embedded solutions," said Scot Morrison, general manager of embedded runtime solutions, Mentor Graphics Embedded Software Division. "Together, we will enable developers to build robust and powerful applications in industries such as digital gaming, industrial control and automation, retail point-of-sale, networking equipment and storage."

As part of the agreement between AMD and Mentor Graphics, embedded developers will have access to the following customized embedded Linux® developments:

Sourcery CodeBench Lite for 64-bit ARM GNU/Linux

Complete GNU-based C/C++ development toolchain for custom Linux target platform development

GNU Debugger for Linux application debug

Windows and Linux host-based development options
