Atollic eases debugging of RTOS-based embedded designs

Atollic has announced the availability of Atollic TrueSTUDIO for ARM v3.2, the latest version of its integrated development environment for embedded microcontroller designs. In addition to a significant increase of target devices now supported, TrueSTUDIO v3.2 introduces native RTOS-aware debugging for leading RTOSes such as FreeRTOS, OpenRTOS, ThreadX and embOS.

Atollic TrueSTUDIO v3.2 also provides an integrated interface to the Micrium uC/Probe tool that provides RTOS-aware debugging for the uC/OS-III RTOS. RTOS-aware debugging greatly eases the task of debugging an RTOS-based embedded development. It achieves this by presenting the software engineer with an insight to the RTOS status, such as message queues and tasks along with other information that will help them to have a better understanding of how their application is being handled within the RTOS.

“With the new RTOS-aware debug support for most popular RTOS”es, Atollic TrueSTUDIO clearly differentiates itself as the most powerful ARM development tool on the market”, says Magnus Unemyr, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Atollic. “No other C/C++ IDE provides an equally well integrated solution with features for multicore debugging, improved code quality, promoting team collaboration and increased developer efficiency. This enables our customers to develop embedded systems of higher quality, faster, and at lower cost.”

Support for in excess of 200 new target devices has been included in this new release. For example, new devices supported include the new STMicroelectronics STM32F3 family, Freescale Kinetis L series, ARM Cortex-A class application processors and many new Fujitsu microcontrollers. In addition support has been added for a number of new evaluation and development boards including the Freescale Freedom range and those for the STMicroelectronics STM32 microcontroller series. In total, Atollic TrueSTUDIO v3.2 now provides support for over 1,000 ARM-based microcontrollers and more than 70 evaluation boards.
