Viosoft Enables Android on Multicore

San Jose, CA – April 26, 2010 – Viosoft Corporation, a pioneer of fully integrated embedded software solutions, announces the availability of the Arriba for Android on multi-core platforms to enable the creation/porting of high performance applications for the Google Android Software on the newest multiple core devices. Viosoft will demonstrate this product at the ESC Multi-core Event this week on the MIPS Technologies 1004K processor in conjunction with MIPS Technologies.

Arriba for Android Multi-core, is fully integrated with the Google Native Development Kit (NDK) and the Google Application Development Kit (SDK), to provide a complete source-aware run-mode/stop-mode debug control of the Android application on multi-core platforms. From the SMP Linux kernel through the Dalvik VM, Arriba provides unprecedented visibility into code development that extends the standard capabilities provided by the Android SDK. Arriba features an enhanced Eclipse environment with a comprehensive set of plug-in modules that offer valuable insight and unprecedented access and control of the Android software under development.

“The Arriba for Android Multi-core is the most comprehensive environment available today for development efforts targeting Android,” said Art Lee, vice president of business development, Viosoft Corporation.

“It is also the industry’s first fully integrated, multi-language, multi-core embedded development environment providing complete support for source aware, Java, C/C++ and Linux development, porting and debugging. With Arriba’s “run mode” debug feature, all layers of the Android based platform are completely transparent to the developer,” he added. From with the embedded SMP Linux kernel, device drivers, native code and shared libraries through Android libraries, application framework, the Dalvik VM and everything in between, developers can set breakpoints in any task, analyze all program variables and view call stacks, register contents and many other aspects of the Android platform not immediately visible with any other tool. With this level of visibility and control, Arriba can dramatically reduce development time, risk and costs.”

Differentiating features of Arriba include:

•End-to-end source aware debug coverage from SMP Linux kernel to Android high performance application
•Patch-less, non-intrusive, on-demand debugging
•Non-preemptive debugging of kernel, drivers, middleware and application for the Android simulator platform
•Multi-thread/process debugging
•Multi-core awareness and control
