Embedded Systems Conference, Silicon Valley, Calif., April 3, 2007 —The Eclipse Foundation is pleased to announce the upcoming releases of the Eclipse C/C++ IDE (CDT) 4.0 and Device Software Development Platform (DSDP) projects. These Eclipse projects represent the core technology that is being developed for the embedded and device development community and have been widely adopted by organizations across the embedded and device software market.
Within the last five years, the scope of Eclipse projects focused primarily around embedded and device development have spawned a healthy, vibrant and significant movement within the Eclipse community. From the early success and adoption of the C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT) project to the creation of the Eclipse Device Software Development Platform (DSDP), Eclipse-based development has emerged as a defacto standard within the embedded industry. Embedded and device developers have a number of Eclipse projects that can assist them with building their applications, including IDEs for C/C++, mobile Java (J2ME)and mobile Linux.
In June, the Eclipse community will release its next comprehensive code base to the public, the Eclipse Europa release. Features aimed at the embedded and device development include:
Organizations already leveraging the newer DSDP projects for commercial products include MontaVista DevRocket 5.0, Atmel AVR32 Studio 1.0, IBM Lotus Expeditor 6.1, and the EMAC Eclipse Distribution, with additional products such as Wind River Workbench 3.0, Motorola MOTODEV Studio, Tradescape Clearing Tool, QNX Momentics, and the ACCESS Linux Platform Development Suite v2.0 coming later this year. Other examples of CDT-based commercial offerings include Luminosity from LynuxWorks, QNX Momentics, Wind River Workbench, ACCESS Linux Platform Development Suite from Access Systems Americas, EDGE Developer Studio and Platform Express from Mentor Graphics, and Tau from Telelogic.
