MontaVista will show off its Eclipse-based tools in a series of live web demonstrations this fall. The webinars will focus on using DevRocket tools to debug embedded Linux applications, and are set for Tues., Sept. 11 in Europe and the U.S., and Sept. 12 in Asia-Pacific.

MontaVista offers its DevRocket tools as a full Platform Development Kit (PDK) suitable for hardware bring-up and kernel hacking, as well as a lighter Application Development Kit (ADK) targeting application developers. The ADK product is already available in pure plug-in form, said to simplify integration with tools from other vendors.

MontaVista said webinar attendees will observe DevRocket being used to “identify memory problems, find hotspots in the application code, and eliminate programming errors.” The demonstration will be followed by a live Q&A session.

In other news, MontaVista recently announced an ambitious 23-city roadshow throughout Europe and North America. The tour is co-sponsored by the company's silicon partner Freescale, and distributors Avnet and EBC Electronik. It promises to outline the tradeoffs between Linux and RTOSes (real-time operating systems), and will also include demonstrations of DevRocket and Freescale's PowerQUICC II Pro (MPC83xx) processor family.
