New name and mission for Metrowerks

2 November 2005 News

Freescale Semiconductor's former Metrowerks subsidiary has been fully integrated within the company and renamed Freescale's Developer Technology Organization.

According to the organisation, its leadership and expertise will now focus strategically on creating Freescale-optimised CodeWarrior hardware and software development technologies. It will also contribute proactively to a robust third-party Freescale ecosystem and establish a common Freescale Linux OS support infrastructure.

The Developer Technology Organization is now a part of Freescale's Technology Solutions Organization and closely aligned with the company's silicon design tools, methodologies and flows, libraries, memories and design IP collateral development teams.

"By incorporating Metrowerks' world-class talent and award-winning CodeWarrior products into the Technology Solutions Organization, we are establishing a powerful, centralised team dedicated to helping our customers rapidly exploit and leverage the performance of Freescale embedded products," said Freescale's chief technology officer, Claudine Simson. "This will provide Freescale with a differentiating competitive advantage and enhance our reputation as a customer-focused organisation."

Over the past year, the Developer Technology Organization has streamlined its business lines and reorganised to provide better support for Freescale's products and business groups. Today, the group is a software and silicon enablement team fully focused on providing the necessary tools and support to developers for the evaluation, optimisation, integration and deployment of Freescale silicon products. Primary offerings include CodeWarrior development environments, evaluation boards, compilers, debuggers, analysis and simulation tools, silicon bring-up technology and Linux OS support packages.
