Hi
    I am looking for embedded system companies(like ARM) doing R&D in
compilers. Can anyone give me some pointers ?

thanks

It depends what you want to know and why. On the whole I believer the
commercial compilers are technically about a decade ahead of the open
source/ free ones.

Re: Compilers and embedded systems
I am sorry, if my question was not clear enough. Basically we are a
team doing a case study on  embedded system industry. As part of that I
am looking at the state of research on commercial compilers/other tools
specifically targeted at embedded systems. So examples of inustries
doing dedicated R&D for tools in embedded system would be a great
starting point for me Only example of a research lab ( in the scale of
a non embedded company like intel/IBM in terms of it being an
independent entity) I have found is from ARM.  I will now look at the
list given below.Any other suggestions would be great.

See also the VFX Forth compilers at

which are the product of research from ESPRIT project PRACTICAL.

Would you mind commenting further on that.  I've been using gcc on a
Hitachi processor and have been quite pleased with it, but maybe I
don't know what I'm missing.

Based on my experiences, you're missing out on costs and bugs.
