Enea Announces RTOS Support for ARM Cortex-A9 and Cortex-R4 Processors

Market leading Enea OSE® Delivers Increased Performance and Reliability for ARM Developers

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 16 February 2010 - Enea (NASDAQ OMX Nordic:ENEA) today announced that its Enea OSE® Realtime Operating System (RTOS) (www.enea.com/ose) now supports the ARM® Cortex(TM)-A9 and Cortex-R4 processors. This Enea OSE release will help developers of embedded applications based on the ARM Cortex-A9 processor to increase performance and robustness through the full support for ARM MMU technology which includes sophisticated functionality such as protection domains, paging on demand, as well as large and small memory page mappings. For deeply embedded designs using the ARM Cortex-R4 processor Enea software delivers reliable realtime processing and the compact footprint required when system optimization is a critical success factor. In addition, Enea OSE enables developers to take full advantage of the power management support on ARM Cortex processors to support mobile devices and other power constrained systems.  The combination of Enea's market proven RTOS and ARM's widely deployed processors is the ideal foundation for a wide range of device segments from mobile phones and networking equipment, to deeply embedded and resource constrained applications.

"We are pleased to be working with Enea to build integrated computing solutions that not only ease development challenges, but also help our customers deliver optimized products to market," said Eric Schorn, VP of Marketing, Processors Division at ARM.  "Enea OSE complements well the power and scalability of the ARM Cortex family of processors."

Enea OSE is a modular, high-performance, full-featured real-time operating system optimized for complex systems requiring the utmost in availability and reliability. Enea OSE's pre-emptive real-time response, memory protection, supervision, error handling, power management optimization and run-time program loading make it ideal for building a wide range of devices and systems on both single and multicore architectures.  Extensive development and debugging tools are provided through the Enea Optima tool suite, an Eclipse-based integrated development environment.  Utilizing the open source Eclipse Platform and C/C++ development tools technology, Optima provides advanced system level browsing, debugging, profiling and analysis tools that greatly simplify the debugging and optimization of large-scale distributed applications spanning multiple processors.

"End users are demanding devices and digital experiences that put a premium on computing power and battery life.  ARM continues to respond to the marketplace with processing technology targeting optimal performance and power management, "said Mathias Bath, senior vice president of marketing at Enea.  "We are certain our joint customers will benefit from the deep integration that fully exploits the capabilities of these two processing cores."
