Mentor Graphics Expands Nucleus Platform Solutions
Mentor Graphics, a provider of electronic hardware and software design solutions, has expanded its platform solutions program by adding support for the Freescale i.MX31 product development kit platform based on the i.MX31 multimedia applications processor.
Based on the Nucleus operating system, a powerful user interface engine, and a full complement of development tools, Nucleus platform solutions offer integrated, validated and optimized support for reference hardware to help jump start the development of portable electronic devices.
The advanced UI engine of the Nucleus-based platform leverages the i.MX31's embedded 3D graphics accelerator, enabling high-end user experiences - incorporating advanced visual effects such as three-dimensional icons, animations and screen transitions - to be designed, tested and modified easily.
