The Nios II C2H Compiler is currently shipping to beta customers and will be available for general release in May 2006.
As the number of embedded designs using FPGAs increases, the availability of the Nios II C2H Compiler is targeted at providing developers of embedded systems with the tools they need to be productive and successful.
The Nios II C2H Compiler leverages Altera's system-level infrastructure to deliver substantial performance improvement across a broad range of applications.
The Nios II C2H Compiler is a plug-in to the Eclipse-based Nios II integrated development environment (IDE), giving Nios II software developers a consistent and familiar interface.
Plofsky continues, "The Nios II C2H Complier automates these tasks to provide our large base of Nios II users improved productivity and performance.
Both the Nios II C2H Compiler and floating-point support deliver increased performance and flexibility to embedded software developers, amplifying the fundamental time-to-market benefits of the Nios II processor as an FPGA-based computing platform," said Chris Balough, Altera's director of software and Nios marketing.
The Nios II C2H Compiler is a productivity tool for Nios II users.
