Provides high levels of computing power and connectivity
STMicroelectronics, a provider of System-on-Chip technology, has launched a software development-tool support for its SPEAr300 and SPEAr600 family of microprocessor units (MPUs) with the ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5).
STMicroelectronics’ SPEAr (Structured Processor Enhanced Architecture) embedded microprocessors provide high levels of computing power and connectivity.
Manufactured in low-power HCMOS (high-speed CMOS) process technologies, the devices combine one or two advanced ARM926EJ-S processors with memory interfaces and a large set of IP blocks delivering connectivity, communication, security and audio/video functions for different applications when high performances are needed with low power consumption.
ARM DS-5 features an application- and kernel-space debugger with trace, system-wide profiler / performance analyzer, real-time system simulator, and compiler.
According to STMicroelectronics, the tool suite makes it easy to develop and optimise Linux-based software stacks for ARM-powered systems, shortening development and testing cycles, and enabling engineers create resource-efficient software.
STMicroelectronics computer systems division group VP and general manager Loris Valenti said moreover, the availability of the ARM Development Studio 5 will further strengthen the relationship between ST and ARM in supporting customers with the best choice of our common solutions.
