Advin Systems - Device Programmers
They also provide the Software to Program an EPROM, and Other IC Chips, This is easy to use with lots of useful functions and information without the looks of complexity.
SuperPro-5004GP Universal Production/Gang Programmer
Programs 60,000+ devices. Operates in concurrent mode: A device starts being programmed right after it has been inserted into the first programming site, while operator loads a device into the next proramming site.

Intusoft - Analog and Mixed-Signal Circuit Design Tools
Established in 1985, Intusoft designs and markets today's leading analog and mixed-signal design automation tools, backing each product with the industry's most extensive service and support program.
Magnetics Designer is a standalone software program for Windows that designs all types of layer (and sector/split bobbin) wound transformers and inductors, and generates a corresponding SPICE model. Magnetics Designer produces a complete transformer or inductor design based upon electrical specifications, including a winding sheet report and a SPICE-compatible model with parasitics.

BeRTOS - Real Time Operating System
BeRTOS was born as a extremely modular, highly optimized and fine-tuned operating system for embedded programming. As a result, each module has its own scope and can be used alone or in cooperation with other modules. It's even possible to use most of the drivers without activating the kernel module.
New architectures are supported at every new release. Here are a few
- Arduino Duemilanove ATmega328P
- ARM7TDMI Atmel AT91SAM7 series, NXP LPC2XXX series
- ARM Cortex-M3 Luminary Stellaris (LM3S),ST Microelectronics STM32
This section includes real world examples of BeRTOS usage. These examples are full featured programs that you can download, compile and flash directly on your board.
DevelGPS - Stellaris
The purpose of this project is to implement a portable GPS locator / geocaching finder with the Cortex-M3 based Luminary Micro LM3S1968 evaluation board. The device proposes a user interface to configure the GPS coordinates of a target location and shows on the OLED display the direction and distance to reach the target.

The Femto OS is a very concise portable real time - preemptive operating system (RTOS) for embedded microcontrollers with minimal ram and flash, say 2KB .. 16KB flash and 128 .. 1024 bytes ram. The main target is the Atmel AVR architecture, such as the ATtiny or smaller ATmega series.
Femto OS is specially made for small embedded devices. For example, the 'Smallest application' is the application called 'Bare' compiled for the ATmega8. It solely runs a 16 bit led counter on the idle task hook. It consumes 258 bytes of flash and 10 bytes of ram.

The mbed Microcontroller is made for prototyping, and comes in a 40-pin 0.1" pitch DIP form-factor so it's ideal for experimenting on breadboard, stripboard and PCBs. It is a uC ScratchPad for trying out new ideas.
|From Hyper Embedded - Microcontroller ASIC and EDA|
The mbed Compiler lets you write programs in C++, and then compile and download them to run on the mbed Microcontroller. The mbed Compiler is a Web-App in the Cloud, you don't have to install or setup anything to ignite your first mbed project idea. Any OS, Any Where, your software is online and ready to use. You will need a computer or netbook with a Browser.
"I had two XBee modules that I really wanted to use with the mbed. These are the standard OEM RF Modules one with an antenna and one with a ANT chip. For one of the chips I will be using the Xbee Explorer USB from Sparkfun...."
