2019-03-11

Hsinchu, Taiwan. - March 11, 2019 - Andes Technology Corporation (TWSE:6533), a founding member of the RISC-V Foundation and the leading supplier of 32/64-bit embedded CPU cores with solutions serving in excess of 1-billion diversified SoCs in 2018, and SEGGER Microcontroller, a leading supplier of software, hardware and development tools for embedded systems, today announced the availability of SEGGER powerful development solutions support for Andes RISC-V processor families.
 
Andes RISC-V processors are based on AndeStar™ V5 architecture, which maintains the full compatibility to RISC-V technology and thus inherits its compact, modular and extensible advantages. In addition, AndeStar™ V5 architecture brings Andes-extended features already proven in high-volume V3 AndesCore™ processors to be effective and beneficial for embedded applications with enhanced performance, code size and development support. Andes RISC-V cores include ultra-compact N22 for applications such as entry-level microcontrollers and deeply-embedded protocol processing, 32/64-bit N25/NX25 for high-speed control tasks, N25F/NX25F for floating-point intensive applications and A25/AX25 for Linux-based applications.
 
SEGGER’s professional libraries and tools for embedded system development are designed for simple usage and optimized for the requirements imposed by resource-constrained embedded systems. The J-Link debug probes, Ozone – the accompanying debugger – and Embedded Studio – the powerful cross platform C/C++ IDE (Integrated Development Environment) – are available to support embedded system developers to create their RISC-V based embedded systems. In addition SEGGER provides an RTOS, communication and security software to help developers design their systems without reinventing everything from scratch while benefitting from SEGGER’s more than 25 years of experience in the industry.
 
“Andes is determined to provide the best RISC-V solutions to help our customers design SoC exceeding their expectations. We understand that embedded software development is a major part of any SoC project.” said Dr. Charlie Su, CTO and Executive VP of Andes Technology. “With SEGGER’s industry-leading development tools support, the software designers can easily and quickly develop compact, efficient embedded applications that benefit from standard RISC-V features and Andes extensions.”
 
"With more than 25 years of experience in the embedded industry, we at SEGGER are The Embedded Experts and produce state-of-the-art development tools which simply work. We use our own tools for development and production to make sure, that we can deliver the highest possible quality to our customers", said Alex Grüner, CTO of SEGGER. “We are pleased to support Andes RISC-V processors with our professional development solutions for easy development and faster time to market.”
