ARM7 complete development tools?

Started by Jack May 17, 2004
Hello. 
We are in the beginning of development of new product with ARM7
Can someone tell us what options we have for development tools? We
need a list of available dev toolset, such as
compiler+emulator+(RTOS)+(dev. board)+(processor) that work with each
other. also, perhaps some comments on those tools.

Thanks!!

Jack

The company I work for (www.sciopta.com) offers a LPC2xxx dev.kit made by Ashling (we are distributor for Germany,Swizzerland and Austria) completed with an eval version of our RTOS. --- 42Bastian Do not email to bastian42@yahoo.com, it's a spam-only account :-) Use <same-name>@epost.de instead !

I think you should specify a little more what you want. There is a third party vendor list on www.atmel.com in the AT91 page. -- Best Regards Ulf at atmel dot com These comments are intended to be my own opinion and they may, or may not be shared by my employer, Atmel Sweden.

Where on this site is an ARM7 compiler ??? I see an AVR compiler, but no ARM7 compiler. Please help a lost soul.

I wonder, is there a conspirancy to move potential ARM users to AVR ? :-) --- 42Bastian Do not email to bastian42@yahoo.com, it's a spam-only account :-) Use <same-name>@epost.de instead !

Oops, sorry, I goofed. It's at: http://www.macraigor.com/gnu/ArmElfInstall.exe
hi. thanks for the replies. 
to be more specific, we need more than 2 UART, 1 SPI, built-in
mmc/compact flash controller would be nice, an lcd controller is
optional, and later we need to embed GUI and rtos in it.

the problem so far i found is that there are emulators that only work
with certain compiler, dev board and certain bsp sample codes.
if there is any complete tools that can work together out of the box
would be nice to save some time.  so, we are looking a dev board with
sample codes, schematics and drivers on it, with recommended
compiler+emulator, and even better if they (or someone) have embedded
linux on it. maybe asking too much, but any combination that people
have experienced that work would be great. about the cost, i will make
a presentation of possible options, so it's really open right now.

so, i'm also interested to know what kind of tools other people have
used in the past to complete a project.

Thanks!

Or you can go to http://www.gnuarm.com to download the gcc tools. -- Rick "rickman" Collins rick.collins@XYarius.com Ignore the reply address. To email me use the above address with the XY removed.

We chose Green Hills Software for our ARM development, partly because we judged them to be a better one-stop shop than others (this was several years ago). They provide compiler, debugger, and other tools. They offer a few RTOS options and the tools are RTOS aware. They support a variety of JTAG interfaces including those from Macraigor and ARM. Plus, they now offer their own JTAG interfaces including one that supports a trace buffer. There were example projects for various ARM eval boards included on the GHS CD (I think these projects were also included with the Atmel AT91 eval board). You probably could get everything you need (except maybe for an eval board) directly from GHS. But this solution will cost you (many thousand US dollars). -- Kevin
