Nucleus ReadyStart

Bundles toolchains, development tools, analysis tools, and source code into a single, "ready-to-use" RTOS solution

Nucleus ReadyStart

The Nucleus ReadyStart platform brings together all the components required to develop devices that require hard real-time performance with a small footprint.

Nucleus ReadyStart answers the most critical development challenges: Cost and time to market. By providing a single distribution that accelerates fast bring-up of a complete system and offering rich board support packages (BSPs) along with Siemens Embedded Sourcery Tools, integrated UI development, and power management services – software developers can create complex, out-of-the-box target platforms instantly.

Rich Development Tools

Nucleus ReadyStart comes with the Sourcery™ CodeBench, which provides an industry-proven commercial quality toolchain and associated utilities. ReadyStart also contains the Sourcery Analyzer providing analysis visualization that is time-correlated with the events traced in the Nucleus RTOS, middleware, and device drivers.

  • A fully integrated development environment (IDE)
  • Access to a performance-optimized compiler and libraries
  • Advanced software insight and analysis tools
  • Comprehensive debugging at the application and kernel levels

System Level Trace and Analysis visualization

The Nucleus Add-on for the Qt framework includes Qt library trace points and analysis agents compatible with Sourcery Analyzer to help investigate and resolve common Qt UI performance problems. Sourcery Analyzer provides analysis visualization that is time-correlated with the events traced in the Nucleus RTOS, middleware and device drivers.

UI Simulation with QEMU

Provides PC host-based simulation of UI designs via QEMU with host hardware graphics acceleration enabling effective desk top UI development allowing UI developers to iterate and be productive in parallel with the other development team members bringing up the target hardware.

Embedded Target Footprint Management

The Nucleus Add-on for the Qt framework includes a footprint management wizard that allows developers to easily configure which Qt library modules are included in the target image thereby facilitating a significant reduction in the Qt library memory footprint.

UI Integration

Create compelling user interfaces for your embedded devices with the optional Nucleus Add-on for the Qt framework. The Nucleus Add-on for the Qt framework is fully integrated with the Nucleus ReadyStart IDE making the overall UI development workflow significantly more streamlined and manageable.

The integration of Qt with the Nucleus RTOS enables embedded UI developers to access the full benefits of the extensive Qt open source development community, cross-platform support, wide market penetration, and wide availability of Qt skills and resources. The Nucleus Add-on for the Qt framework includes the Qt Designer UI development tool and the Qt Core, Qt GUI and Qt Widget UI library modules. In addition to these Qt project open source based components, the add-on also provides several powerful tools and features not available in the standard open source Qt project software distribution that extend the power of Qt framework for embedded UI design.

Features and Benefits

Nucleus ReadyStart Features include system and application workflows; fully integrated “ready-to-use” approach; based on secure and stable RTOS kernel; broad support for hardware: MCU, DSP, FPGA, MPU; comprehensive middleware offerings; toolchain integration with Sourcery tools. Nucleus ReadyStart Benefits include:

  • Unified source tree and make-based build system make it easy to build simple to complex systems – fast
  • Highly integrated design environment and BSP interface significantly reduces bring-up time
  • Design with confidence using Sourcery Tools in all phases of development
