American Arium Supports Newest 64-Bit Intel® Xeon™ Processors MP

Arium Offers Debug Solution for Latest Hyper-Threading Architecture

TUSTIN, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 19, 2005 -- American Arium, an industry leader in hardware-assisted development tools, today announced support for the newest additions to the family of 64-bit Intel® Xeon™ processors MP. SourcePoint™ 7.1, the latest version of Arium's flagship software interface for Intel® Pentium® processors, and Arium's ECM-50 in-target probe together offer outstanding run control and execution trace, giving the program and firmware developer unsurpassed visibility to and manipulation 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 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.

The 64-bit Intel Xeon processor MP with 1 MB L2 cache and 64-bit Intel Xeon processor MP with 8 MB L3 cache were officially introduced by Intel late last month. The processors are designed for two-way and four-way server systems, delivering significant performance increases over the previous generation and providing price advantages for mid-tier enterprise applications, according to Intel. The new Xeon processors MP combine Extended Memory 64 Technology, PCI Express, DDR2-400 memory, and demand-based switching with Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology.

"The Intel Xeon processors MP let an operating system see a single processor as if it were two logical processors, which improves server response time. It's part of Intel's Hyper-Threading Technology," said Jeff Acampora, vice president, Sales & Marketing. "Arium has offered debug solutions for this kind of Intel architecture for some time now. We are pleased to be able to offer support for these latest processors."

The Arium ECM-50 emulator with SourcePoint 7.1 is available now. Contact American Arium for the latest updates.
