Macraigor Systems Joins RMI Partner Alliance

RMI Corporation, a leading supplier of Advanced Processor Solutions for networking, communications and consumer applications, announced that Macraigor Systems, LLC has joined the RMI® Partner Alliance, a group of software, component, system and tool providers that bring comprehensive solutions to customers in the infrastructure, enterprise and media markets.

The agreement between RMI and Macraigor Systems provides RMI’s customers with hardware and software JTAG debug interface solutions for RMI’s multi-core multi-threaded XLR Processor(tm) and XLS Processor(tm) families, as well as the RMI Alchemy(tm) Processor family. As part of this relationship, Macraigor is also offering a free port of the popular Eclipse environment and the GNU toolkit (gcc, gas and gdb) for RMI’s processors on their website. The Macraigor Eclipse + GNU Tools Suite is an implementation and packaging of Eclipse 3.3 (Europa), Zylin Embedded CDT 4.0, several of the open-source GNU tools/utilities and a program called OcdRemote that provides an interface between Eclipse, the GDB debugger and a Macraigor On-Chip debug device.

“Macraigor Systems is fully committed to providing hardware and software JTAG debug interface solutions for all current and future Alchemy, XLR and XLS technology-based processors,” said managing partner James MacGregor. “Being part of the RMI Partner Alliance allows us to showcase our solutions and opens up additional channels across a broad market including security, wireless and consumer media applications.”
