eCosCentric will provide front-line support for eCosPro-C/PEG
deployments and will expand its range of porting and consulting
services to provide C/PEG driver development and optimisation
services for eCosPro applications. eCosCentric will also offer a
number of complete off-the-shelf development board ports certified
with eCosPro-C/PEG. PEG is already used in successful eCos-based
devices, such as the Iomega HipZip MP3 player.
"C/PEG's minimal target footprint makes it an ideal graphical
solution for organisations that are seeking to make use of the high
performance and feature rich eCos RTOS in cost-competitive embedded
designs." said Paul Beskeen, Chairman and Director of Business
Development at eCosCentric. Typically, eCosPro-C/PEG will need under
140 kilobytes of code space, allowing a complete application to fit
comfortably in resource-constrained devices such as mobile phones,
MP3 players, industrial controllers and instrumentation devices.
"We believe the integration of C/PEG with eCosPro gives a broad
spectrum of embedded systems developers the ideal platform for
bringing captivating new products to the consumer, industrial
and medical markets." said Jim Delisle, Vice President of Swell
Software and C/PEG Developer.
eCosPro-C/PEG is delivered with the full complement of utilities
found in Swell Software's GUI toolkit for embedded systems, allowing
for rapid prototyping and development of graphical applications on
a Windows or Linux host development system. Custom C/PEG windows,
dialogs, bitmaps and proprietary fonts can be automatically
generated and integrated with the eCosPro run-time, utilising
the eCosPro Eclipse-based IDE for application development and
eCosPro is a stable, fully tested and supported version of the
eCos open source real-time operating system and RedBoot bootstrap
firmware. The eCosPro Developer's Kit is a distribution of eCosPro
which includes prebuilt eCos host tools and compiler toolchains,
full documentation, an Eclipse-based integrated development
environment to streamline eCos application development and a
libstdc++ implementation for selected architectures.
Founded in April 2002, eCosCentric is the leading provider of
