Debug tool specialist, Lauterbach continues to add support for many new processor and flash families. This year will see a new record with support added for over 350 new processor types and 300+ flash parts from 27 silicon vendors being added to the range of supported cores. This is part of the continued expansion of its range of debug tools and is being rewarded by continued impressive sales growth in China Asia and the USA

Lauterbach tools are used to ensure software code quality in products ranging from mobile phones to washing machines. They are also used in safety critical software development in such sectors as automotive and medical.

“One strength of Lauterbach, is the very wide range microprocessors that we support,” said Barry Lock, UK Manager. “Our customers need to know that they have the freedom to choose whichever microprocessor is best for their project, and that there will be effective tool support for the critical debug phase. This announcement reaffirms our commitment to provide tool support for the very latest devices whether its from ARM, Intel, MIPS, TI or any other silicon supplier.”

Recently, Lauterbach has been acknowledged for pioneering new software debug technologies such as ‘long term trace ‘, ‘high speed trace’ and ‘power usage analysis’. Engineers will have the chance to explore these new technologies at Medelec, a UK medical electronics event at which Lauterbach will be presenting and exhibiting. Medelec takes place on the 29th November at Cambridge. www.medelec.co.uk

“As microprocessors have become more complex, faster and more integrated, debug tool technology has needed to play an increasingly important role,” said Barry Lock. “At Medelec we’ll be demonstrating our tools, as well as presenting about ‘code quality‘. Code quality is clearly essential in medical systems, so we are expecting a very receptive audience.”

German based Lauterbach had a turnover in excess of $90 million worldwide during 2010 and has seen its customer base grow year on year. Recognised for both engineering excellence and exceptional technical support, Lauterbach tools have become a favourite with many hi-tech engineers. Lauterbach tools support all the major families of embedded processor cores, covering products from 75 silicon companies. The quality and capability of these tools enable engineering teams to develop robust code whilst minimising development time lost to debugging.
