Düsseldorf, Germany: The TrueSTUDIO development environment from Swedish embeddedsystems specialist Atollic is now available for use with Toshiba Electronics Europe’s (TEE) range of ARM926EJ-S and ARM Cortex- M3 microcontrollers. Two versions of the development environment can be purchased: Atollic TrueSTUDIO Lite, which comes freeof- charge, and the low-cost Atollic TrueSTUDIO Professional.
TrueSTUDIO is based on the commonly used ECLIPSE IDE framework. Mainly intended for embedded- systems developers using the C/C++ and assembler languages, TrueSTUDIO also introduces UML for graphical modeling. A C/ C++ editor plus advanced assembler and makefile editors all offer colour-coded syntax and other features, such as expand/collapse of code blocks, to help speed application development.
Through TrueSTUDIO, it’s possible to build embedded systems based on Toshiba’s ARM9 products, which offer varying levels of HMI-related functionality, as well as the new Toshiba Cortex M3 family members. Using the tools, developers can manage a large number of key development tasks, including compiling and assembling source code and linking object files and runtime libraries.
