Mentor Graphics Corp. has announced that the new version of the Nucleus POSIX software now includes support for networking applications. Developers of embedded network applications who need a POSIX-compliant API can use the Nucleus POSIX software in combination with the Nucleus NET TCP/IP networking stack in order to create POSIX-compliant applications.

Many companies have designed their applications around the universal system APIs provided by the IEEE 1003.13-2003 Standard Application Environment Profiles. Using standard APIs allows these companies to easily migrate to a different OS if the need arises. This version of the Nucleus POSIX software gives these companies the option to quickly and easily migrate to the Nucleus OS.

?Unlike the market for operating systems for PCs, the embedded OS market is highly competitive. Companies will switch operating systems with a design that places additional requirements on the OS. With the Nucleus POSIX software, customers can move their applications from their legacy operating system to the Nucleus OS with minimal investment,? said Glen Johnson, product marketing manager, Embedded Systems Division, Mentor Graphics.

The Nucleus POSIX software includes the basic POSIX library, along with the POSIX Asynchronous I/O library, POSIX File System Library, POSIX Run-Time library, and POSIX Net library. Nucleus products supported under the Nucleus POSIX software include the Nucleus PLUS RTOS, Nucleus FILE management software, the Nucleus File Abstraction Layer software, the Nucleus MMU memory management software, the Nucleus USB software, the Nucleus Inter-Process Communication software, the Nucleus DDL dynamic download software, and now the Nucleus NET stack. Together, the Nucleus POSIX software and the Nucleus NET stack give developers a complete, integrated networking solution in a programmable environment.

The Nucleus embedded software is sold in source code format and without royalty fees. Licences for the Nucleus POSIX software begin at Rs.1.58 lakh ($3,495).
