-- Patriot Scientific Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: PTSC - News) announced today that it has completed a major upgrade to its development tools including a GNU-C/C++ optimizing compiler for use with its IGNITE family of processor cores.
PTSC provides its own C-based development tools and now offers a bundled GNU-based compiler solution based on Sun's migration suite resulting in higher performance IGNITE-based systems. PTSC provides the highest-performance density microprocessor (measured in Consumermarks) as rated by the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC), the industry's standard of benchmarking processor performance.
