Atollic, available from Glyn High-Tech Distribution has added target support for NXP’s family of ARM Cortex-M0 and Cortex-M3-based microcontrollers in its award-winning Atollic TrueSTUDIO for ARM C/C++ development environment.
Based on the latest ECLIPSE platform (Indigo), the new version of Atollic TrueSTUDIO (v3.0) provides a large number of improvements in the underlying IDE framework.
The new TrueSTUDIO v3.0 has a redesigned and more intuitive GUI for better user experience, eliminating some of the Eclipse interface peculiarities that often confused new users with experience in traditional embedded C/C++ development tools.
New features of the TrueSTUDIO v3.0 development environment also include graphical charts for execution time analysis using statistical profiling, and improved real-time interrupt tracing, enabled by the ARM Serial Wire Viewer (SWV) interface.
TrueSTUDIO v3.0 includes the latest version of the GNU C/C++ toolchain for ARM, comprising of improved versions of the GNU compiler and runtime libraries, debugger and other command line utilities.
In addition to the new NXP support, recent additions in terms of microcontroller target support include Infineon XMC4000 (Cortex-M4) and Energy Micro EFM32 (Cortex-M3).
According to Gene Carter, International Product Manager, Business Line Microcontrollers, NXP Semiconductors, Atollic continues to deliver full-featured development tools to serve the needs of professional embedded engineers, with the highly integrated tools complementing the features in NXP’s LPC1000 microcontrollers range.
Magnus Unemyr, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Atollic AB explains that by adding NXP support in TrueSTUDIO, Atollic now supports all major ARM-based microcontroller manufacturers in the market.
The new Atollic TrueSTUDIO v3.0 also includes updated versions of its optional code analysis and test automation products:
- Atollic TrueINSPECTOR (static source code analysis with MISRA-C compliance checking and code metrics including code complexity measurements)
- Atollic TrueANALYZER (in-target test quality measurement using MC/DC-level coverage using dynamic execution flow analysis)
- Atollic TrueVERIFIER (embedded test automation using auto-generated and auto-executed unit test suites in the target board)
