ADI brings Eclipse to Blackfin and Sharc development
Analog Devices has introduced a new Eclipse-based development platform for its Blackfin and Sharc processors.
Called the CrossCore Embedded Studio (CCES), it was created using the industry standard open source Eclipse environment to take advantage of an ecosystem of both proprietary and open source tools.
The C/C++ and assembly editing environment has plug-in support for drivers for Ethernet and USB. There are algorithmic software modules.
“CrossCore Embedded Studio was created to give Blackfin and SHARC users the ease of use and features of an Eclipse-based IDE along with Analog Devices’ mature, market proven code generation technology, algorithmic and system software libraries,” said David Lannigan, director of Software Engineering and Tools at Analog Devices.
CCES also provides support for Micrium’s embedded software components such as µC/OS-IIITM Real-Time Kernel, µC/USB Device Stack and µC/FSTM File System.
“We worked very closely with Micrium to leverage their technology from CCES and by doing so offer code generation, configuration and debug capabilities for their operating systems and drivers not offered elsewhere,” said Lannigan.
Blackfin and SHARC processor users will find CCES licenses are available at several levels starting with a single-user node locked license priced at $995.
