Friends, For a current LPC213x project we purchased the IAR Embedded Workbench development kit (about $4k if I remember right) with a J-link USB-> JTAG. It's "ok", but it doesn't give me that warm and fuzzy feeling of complete trust. The UI behaves funky (resizing toolboxes by itself, suddenly refusing to set breakpoints, etc.), the compiler seems to be a bit buggy sometimes, and the C libr

I am debugging a program in C for Chipcon 2430 processor in IAR Embedded Workbench. When I run the program step by step, I observe that the execution cursor jumps over some instructions and they never get executed. What could be the reason for this? A memory mapping issue? Stack corruption? Nina

I have one of these kits. Very cool, but the IAR compiler won't work with anything other than Win2000/XP, so not much good to me. I went to the MSPGCC page and looked at the FAQ, but it looks like the USB debugger is not supported yet (at least as of 1 yr. ago). Can anyone confirm if it is supported under WinME or Linux and point me to what I need to know to make it work. Thanks,...

Hi there, for a possible rewrite of software running on custom hardware built around a Hitachi/Renesas H8/3002 I'm thinking about changing the development tools. Right now the "IDE" is made of IAR Compiler/Assembler/Linker and a bunch of home-brewed tools for building the program-image and uploading it to the target. The most annoying about this kind of toolchain is that it's missing any ...

Hi, I am attempting to figure out how to avoid the use of __intrinsic in my C code. This is because our test and verification department has an issue of using code that isn't ANSI C89 compliant.

Hi, Does anyone know of a source for samples of any of the chips in the AT91SAM7 line? My standard net searches show only the dev kits at $250. I don't really want another dev kit, since I already have the full IAR ARM compiler and have done several designs with the AT91R40807. I'd like to put together a small PCB to test the SAM7 series as a replacement for the AT91 controllers in s...

I can build fine, but if I click "build and debug" I get various problems; either it pretends to run but reall...
