Author: JT Smith

Metrowerks today announced that it will
make
its CodeWarrior integrated development environment (IDE) available
online
at DevelopOnline for Linux developers targeting Motorola processor
platforms. Using DevelopOnline's resources dramatically reduces
development
costs while improving time-to-market for electronic products.DevelopOnline works online with the open source software community to
accelerate time-to-market for microprocessor-based intelligent
electronic
products by eliminating the need for Linux innovators to invest in
microprocessor evaluation boards or to build their own boards based on
a
reference design.

Metrowerks intends to provide support for all Motorola development
boards,
in cooperation with DevelopOnline, beginning with the MPC8260 board,
which
will be available in April 2001. Pricing has not yet been announced.

Stated Alan Steinberg, DevelopOnline president and CEO, "CodeWarrior is
a
great addition to our resources and will accelerate product development
while decreasing time-to-market for developers familiar with the
CodeWarrior
IDE."

The CodeWarrior IDE provides intuitive, graphics-based tools that allow
developers to create, compile and debug their applications from a
single
environment, shortening the development cycle and helping them reach
market
faster.

"CodeWarrior provides the embedded Linux developer with a comprehensive
set
of tools for moving product to market in the least amount of time while
reducing cost, simplifying the development process and enabling
flexibility," said John Smolucha, vice president of marketing,
Metrowerks.
"We are happy to have DevelopOnline offer CodeWarrior online for even
greater development flexibility."
