SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Imagination Technologies (LSE:IMG), a leading multimedia, processor, communications and cloud technologies company, announces a significant expansion of its partnership with Mentor Graphics for Sourcery™ CodeBench development tools components for MIPS CPUs, allowing developers to accelerate their development cycle significantly thanks to the Mentor® open-source, low-cost and widely supported software platform.
Sourcery CodeBench for MIPS CPUs provides a complete C/C++ development environment that includes an optimized GNU Compiler and Debugger. As a result of this extended collaboration, embedded developers programming for the MIPS architecture will benefit from a fully optimized implementation of all Sourcery CodeBench editions across all major members of the MIPS CPU family, from low-end to high-end, including the upcoming MIPS32 and MIPS64-based Series5 'Warrior' generation of cores.
Says Amit Rohatgi, VP marketing, Imagination: "To continue to grow our ecosystem, and take the MIPS architecture to new heights, Imagination and Mentor Graphics have entered into a new multi-year agreement. Open source tools and technologies like Sourcery CodeBench are key drivers for proliferation of our IP. We will continue to work closely together with Mentor to optimize the toolchain and included components which will deliver added functionality and improved performance for new and existing MIPS cores."
Mark Mitchell, general manager, Open Source Embedded Solutions at Mentor Graphics says: "The MIPS architecture is one of the most storied - and most popular - computer architectures in history, and is poised for even greater success now that MIPS is under the stewardship of Imagination Technologies. Mentor Graphics has been a proud MIPS partner for many years. The continuing collaboration between Mentor Graphics and Imagination not only ensures the availability of free, open-source toolchains for MIPS, but ongoing improvements in functionality and performance for embedded developers."
