Eclipse-Based Debug Platform Comes Free Of Charge

Embedded Systems Conference, San Jose, CA. - Forecasting greater productivity in designing embedded systems, the company offers a free, Eclipse-compliant embedded debugging solution with sample Eclipse projects that run on many standard evaluation boards for hosting on Linux. The Eclipse platform provides users with an integrated environment for building and debugging systems and software and enables different tools to share a common look and feel while providing accessibility within the same framework. Customizing the environment is possible with a unique tool profile depending on the type of development under way. Users can also add other tools to the Eclipse environment. The Eclipse + GNU Tools Suite packages Eclipse 3.2.1, several open source GNU tools and utilities, and OCDRemote, a program which provides an interface between Eclipse, the GDB debugger, and the company's on-chip debug device. The GNU tools include binutils, gcc, gdb, and gdbtui. Versions of the suite are available for AMD Geode, ARM MIPS (32-/64-bit), PowerPC, and Xscale processors and are available for download at the company's website.
