Atollic, available from Glyn High-Tech Distribution recently released the latest version of their award-winning integrated development environment (IDE), Atollic TrueSTUDIO.
With Atollic TrueSTUDIO v3.3, embedded developers now have the capability to code, compile, debug and perform source code analysis all within a single development environment, facilitating a highly efficient and productive environment for embedded developers.
Atollic TrueSTUDIO v3.3 is an embedded IDE with professional static source code analysis tools, with its analysis and metrics functions also including checking for compliance against the MISRA-C:2004 coding standard and code metrics features such as code complexity analysis.
By following the MISRA-C coding standard, developers are able to better tackle the challenges often associated with using the C language and are guided to improve code portability, ease of maintainability and application reliability. Atollic TrueSTUDIO v3.3 follows the MISRA-C coding standard more rigorously than most other tools on the market, ensuring that embedded developers can be assured their code is validated to high standards.
The built-in code metrics analysis tools enables developers to easily measure important statistics such as code complexity or commenting level of the source code, empowering them by providing them with the necessary tools to rewrite and improve their code.
Atollic TrueSTUDIO also provides a rich GUI for visualisation and navigation of the MISRA-C and code metrics analysis results, including a report generator that produces test reports in a variety of popular file formats.
According to Magnus Unemyr, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Atollic, by incorporating professional code analysis features as standard within Atollic TrueSTUDIO, they have been able to offer a feature-rich ARM development tool that enables multicore debugging and improved code quality, and promotes team collaboration and increased developer efficiency, thus accelerating ARM development to a new level of productivity.
Atollic TrueSTUDIO v3.3 also includes native support for kernel aware debugging of embedded applications developed using one of the world’s most popular commercial real-time kernel, Micrium’s uC/OS-III. TrueSTUDIO’s debugger provides docking windows that indicate the internal RTOS state during debugging. This is accomplished by providing highly informative windows into task control blocks (TCBs), semaphores, mutexes, timers and more.
Also, TrueSTUDIO v3.3 significantly improves the range of microcontroller targets supported and includes support for many new devices from Energy Micro, STMicroelectronics, Toshiba, NXP and Infineon. Tool enhancements in the new version also include several debugger improvements such as a new memory fill function, added support for Multilink and OSJTAG debug probes and the Freescale OpenSDA interface.
Atollic TrueSTUDIO is a world-class development and debugging tool that offers a state-of-the-art editor, an optimising C/C++ compiler and a multiprocessor-aware debugger with real-time tracing. The code metrics and analysis features now integrated into TrueSTUDIO were previously available as a separate package called TrueINSPECTOR. The tool suite delivers a leap in software development team collaboration and developer productivity, and offers advanced features including ARM build and debug tools and Serial Wire Viewer (SWV) real-time tracing.
Atollic TrueSTUDIO now provides support for over 1250 devices and approximately 80 evaluation boards. The online example project repository, Atollic TrueSTORE contains in excess of 1000 free example projects that are directly accessible from within the IDE. Embedded developers can quickly pull together a project’s resources and have the application working on the target platform within minutes.
