Freescale i.MX31 processors gain on-chip debug support

Macraigor Systems LLC is to provide debugging and control of Freescale Semiconductor’s i.MX31 and i.MX31L multimedia application processors when used with its OCDemon family of products.

Macraigor has also updated the free, pre-built Gnu tools suite to include sample configurations for Freescale evaluation boards. These examples contain source, gdbinit and make files for each board. The demo program allows developers to build, download and debug via gdb using only two commands.

Macraigor has committed to supporting future i.MX31 processor-based variants as they become available. The company’s debug solutions include a range of hardware interface devices and application programs. These provide embedded systems engineers with more flexibility when selecting a host interface and an ‘appropriate’ price/performance ratio for their embedded projects.

Hardware debug devices are available with parallel, serial, USB or Ethernet connectivity to Windows and Linux host machines. Debug application programs are available to support an embedded project throughout the development cycle.
