MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 19, 2010 — Actel Corporation (NASDAQ: ACTL) today announced that Keil™ now supports the SmartFusion™ intelligent mixed signal FPGA family in the Keil MDK-ARM Microcontroller Development Kit.
The latest release of MDK-ARM supports the ARM® Cortex™-M3 microcontroller subsystem (MSS) on SmartFusion devices and includes set-up files, device-specific views and example projects. MDK features the industry-standard compiler from ARM, the Keil µVision4 Integrated Development Environment, the fully functional RTX RTOS, and sophisticated analysis tools. MDK provides a complete development environment for creating, debugging and verifying embedded applications.
SmartFusion, the first intelligent mixed signal FPGA, is the only device that integrates an FPGA, hard ARM Cortex-M3 based MSS and programmable analog, offering full customization and ease-of-use. SmartFusion devices meet the needs of hardware and embedded designers who require a true system-on-chip (SoC) solution that is more flexible than traditional fixed-function microcontrollers and less costly than soft processor cores on conventional FPGAs.
MDK-ARM v4.10 is available for download now: www.keil.com/demo/eval/arm.htm.
