uP support enriches ARM development suite

Crossware gave its ARMR Development Suite a boost by adding support for Philips' LPC210X ARM-based microprocessors.

Crossware gave its ARMR Development Suite a boost by adding support for Philips' LPC210X ARM-based microprocessors. The LPC210X chips, based on the ARM7TDMI-S processor core, feature a range of on-chip peripherals including multiple timers, universal asynchronous receiver/transmitters (UARTs), serial peripheral interface (SPI), inter-integrated circuit (I2C) and an analogue-to-digital converter for the some of the most chips.

With the enhancements made by Crossware, developers can exploit the features of these chips by providing a combination of wizards, simulation, debugging, compiler extensions and pre-configuration. This simplifies the otherwise complex task of setting up an ARM chip and helps accelerate the development process.

Crossware's set of Code Creation Wizards, provided for all on-chip peripherals, are able to generate configuration code, interrupt routines, and, for the UART, complete I/O handlers.

The simulator simulates the ARM core itself, as well as many of the LPC210X on-chip peripherals, including the vectored interrupt controller (VIC). Thus, a developer can use the simulator to immediately test the code created with the wizards. The simulator can also be extended using the Virtual Workshop Interface.
