Portland, Oregon - Sept. 30, 2005 - eSOL, a proven developer of real-time embedded software solutions, today announced that it signed an OEM distribution agreement with Signum Systems, where eSOL bundles Signum's JTAGjet with its flagship product "eBinder®", an integrated development environment for leading 32-bit embedded processors. JTAGjet will be sold to eBinder customers through eSOL as an add-on debug option. This support adds a highly efficient JTAG-ICE option to eBinder, and benefits developers who design ARM-based digital consumer products, from digital still cameras to portable AV viewers and media players.
JTAGjet is a real-time, transparent in-circuit emulator based on the JTAG
boundary scan port, and supports not only general ARM architectures but
also dual core processors such as OMAP and TMS320DM series from Texas Instruments.
Integrating JTAGjet with eBinder lets you use the JTAG as a debug connection,
instead of having to use a separate serial or parallel port. This integration
provides all of eBinder's powerful debug features through the JTAG connection.
All of the JTAGjet features such as debugging code from flash, displaying
registers, etc, are also available through the eBinder/JTAGjet integration.
"We are proud to partner with eSOL to provide state-of-the-art tools
to the portable imaging market", says Jerry Lewandowski, President
of Signum Systems. "Using our high-speed JTAG emulator with eSOL's
integrated operating system allows for a more efficient visualization of
the running application, considerably reduces data transfer times between
the application and the debugger which in turn increases the overall performance
of the embedded system."
"The need for using a JTAG port as a debug port is increasing significantly,
as we enter the post-PC era with more digital consumer products today,"
says Nobuyuki Ueyama, Executive Vice President of eSOL. "eBinder for
ARM with the JTAGjet option will satisfy this ever-increasing need, allowing
developers more efficient and cost-saving debug options with this hybrid
approach of offering software- and hardware-driven debug solutions."
Pricing and Availability
JTAGjet for eBinder for ARM processors is now available from eSOL from $2,000.
