Keil have announced at Embedded World, Nuremberg, the Keil µVision4 IDE, for creating, simulating and debugging embedded applications on microcontroller and smartcard devices. The Keil µVision4 IDE is available from Embedded Logic Solutions .
The flexible window management system introduced in Keil µVision4 IDE enables developers to use multiple monitors and provides complete control over window placement anywhere on the visual surface. The new user interface makes better use of the screen space and organises multiple windows efficiently delivering an uncluttered, efficient environment to develop applications.
Following are the additional features of µVision4 IDE:
- System viewer windows providing device peripheral register information which can be changed directly from within the System viewer windows
- Debug restore views allow multiple window layouts to be saved, enabling quick selection of the most suitable debug view for program analysis
- Multi-project workspace provides a simplified way to work with numerous concurrent projects such as boot loader and application programs
- Data and instruction trace capabilities for ARM and Cortex processor-based MCUs
- Device simulation has been extended to support many new devices such as ARM Cortex-M3 processor-based MCUs from Luminary, NXP, and Toshiba; Atmel SAM7/9, and new 8051 derivatives such as Infineon XC88x and SiLABS 8051Fxx
- Supports interfaces for many debug adapter interfaces including ADI miDAS Link, Atmel SAM-ICE, Infineon DAS, and ST-Link
