Avnet and ARM Launch The Embedded Software Store

ARM / Avnet Embedded Software StoreAvnet and ARM have jointly announced the launch of the Embedded Software Store during ARM Techcon 2011.

This is a store where you can purchase or sell operating systems, software stacks,  middleware and tools for embedded software development. The different software component are also classified  in different markets namely automotive, communication, consumer, industrial, medical and military.

There are already quite a few well known vendors such as Adeneo Embedded, Micrium, ST Microelectronics. Keil and more.

Before a purchase you’ll be able to view product details and contact the vendor for details. Once the purchase is done, you an download the products immeditaly.

Some products such as STM32F40x Standard Peripheral & DSP Library can actually be downloaded free of charge. So in the future, more silicon vendors may want to add their BSP, SDK and development tools free of charge to the site. Open source embedded software may also be available for download there as well.

If you are an embedded software vendor you can register to start selling your software online. You’ll need to download the Vendor Application Form, fill it and email it to swapp [at] avnet.com. They do not provide commercial details on the site (e.g. commission), they’ll contact you about those after registration.

There is also a community (Forum) for developers to interact directly with software vendors and discuss general software topics related to operating systems, middleware and tools. The forum is not active for now since the site has just launched.

Finally, there is an “Education” section that currently provides links to training events, industry events, white paper and (soon) reference designs.

If you have time to spare, you can also watch the video below that explains the different sections of the website, how to purchase and how to become a vendor.
