Green Hills extends compiler support for Freescale processors
Green Hills Software has announced a new release of its compiler toolchain with new support for Freescale and Renesas procerssors.
Processors now supported include Freescale’s Qorivva MPC57xx automotive processors, Freescale’s e6500 core QorIQ T4240 network processors with AltiVec support and the latest Freescale PX-series microcontrollers.
There is also support for ARM Cortex-A7, Cortex-R5, and Cortex-R7 and the Renesas RH850 series of processors.
Green Hills Compiler 2012.5 includes a new utility that statically computes maximum stack usage, even in programs that use traditionally insurmountable features such as recursion, interrupts, and function pointers.
There is also new coverage analysis technology that can improve the efficiency of coverage-instrumented code, empowering developers to perform rigorous testing and quality control.
There has also been a reduction of run-time stack use, which will support speed optimisations in the most memory-constrained embedded systems.
“First and foremost, Compiler 2012.5 is a result of responding to the real-world challenges of embedded developers,” said Nikola Valerjev, director of engineering, Green Hills Software.
Green Hills Compiler 2012.5 is available immediately for ARM, Power, x86, V850, RH850, MIPS, and ColdFire processor architectures.
