American Arium Launches SourcePoint™ 7.6 With Enhanced TSM

Latest Debugger Supports Intel® Active Management Technology and the Intel® Atom™ Processor Better Than Ever

TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2008) - American Arium, an industry leader in hardware-assisted development tools, today announced the release of SourcePoint™ 7.6. The latest version of the company's flagship debugger delivers enhanced Target State Management (TSM) and support for Intel® Active Management Technology.

"SourcePoint 7.6 is all about target state management," said Larry Traylor, Arium's CEO. "We started the process with SourcePoint 7.5, and have completed it with 7.6. With this latest version of our debugger, developers will find that SourcePoint is now much more aware of the state of the target, how it got to that state, and what it was doing at the time the state changed. SourcePoint can better return to where it was before the target hung or crashed now, too."

Built into the TSM code is support for Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT). Intel AMT, which is supported on Intel® Centrino® and vPro™ technology and Intel® Core™2 processor with vPro™ technology, lets IT professionals take better care of their networked computing assets. Intel AMT allows the IT person to determine what's out there, even while PCs are powered off. It allows remote "healing" of systems after OS failures, and it includes a "defense" feature from incoming threats.

SourcePoint 7.6 works with several Arium JTAG emulators, including the latest ECM-XDP3, which supports the new Intel® Atom™ processor. SourcePoint 7.6 delivers reliable run control, and depending on architecture, complex breakpoints with execution trace. Arium hardware-assisted debug solutions give the software and firmware developer unsurpassed visibility to and development of code via a series of intuitive screens and dialogs with numerous viewing and customization options. SourcePoint operates in real time with all core frequencies, supports the Intel® Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), and works with today's most popular compiler tool chains. It supports industry-standard input file formats and includes a robust C-like command language.

Arium's SourcePoint 7.6 debugger is available with the purchase of an Arium in-target probe.
