Freescale's i.MX31 and Coldfire processors got a boost from Mentor Graphics,
which now supports both with its Nucleus RTOS and its Eclipse-based EDGE Tool
Suite. The suite's EDGE Debugger provides basic execution and memory control,
plus advanced debugging features such as run-mode debug and kernel awareness
when using an operating system like Nucleus or Linux. The debugger can handle
multicore debugging. It also provides real-time trace, profiling, performance
analysis, and code coverage support. Nucleus RTOS software pricing starts at
$12,495, and the EDGE Tool Suite begins at $3000.
