Wavecom Announces Eclipse Ready Open AT Software Suite IDE

Wavecom (Paris:AVM) (NASDAQ:WVCM) (ISIN:FR0000073066) announced that Open AT(R) Software Suite IDE (Integrated Development Environment) tools are now designed to be Eclipse(TM) Ready, using tools from the popular open-source development community.

Future application developments can be done with Wavecom’s Open AT(R) SDK (Software Development Kit) taking advantage of the Eclipse(TM) community. This access to the Eclipse(TM) community will be available to developers free of charge, without license fees, NRE (Non Recurring Engineering) costs or any additional fees for developer seats. Wavecom’s, PC-based development tools used for creating native-embedded ANSI C applications now integrate into Eclipse(TM). Developers who need to combine wireless capabilities provided by Wavecom with specific application software can build programs and debug more easily using Eclipse(TM) project for “C/C++ .Development Tool (CDT)”.

Eclipse(TM) projects also provide tools to support the developers through the entire application lifecycle — from design and development to testing and debugging all the way to product launch.

“This is truly a break-through that significantly reduces development time-to-market,” stated Jamie Garroch, Wavecom Product Marketing Director. He added, “The inclusion of Wavecom’s Open AT(R) SDK in the Eclipse(TM) environment makes overall system development cheaper and easier by allowing customers to reuse open-source parts as well as seamlessly developing their own tools based on Eclipse(TM) to test and debug their applications running on Wavecom’s Wireless CPU(R)s.” The new SDK on Eclipse(TM), is now available for download by registered customers from Wavecom.
