ARM, Arium and UEFI

Just read the press release blurb from Arium about their upgraded support for UEFI on their ARM products.

Arium today announced support for ARM-based Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). As part of the recently announced SourcePoint(TM) 6.9.1 debugger, Arium provides a seamless, easy-to-use, UEFI-aware development environment. Engineers have access to toolbar selections to discover and debug all phases of UEFI code (whole press release here)
I've used Ariums for a long time on Intel platforms (have one at my house right now) and have used their UEFI support there in tracking down hard-to-reproduce problems on real platforms. SourcePoint isn't my favorite debugger front end, but it is serviceable. But UEFI's standardization, even in portions of the debug infrastructure, give Ariums a chance to provide higher level features. I look forward to trying one out.
