Crossworks vs IAR and Keil uVision

Started by householder_lpc December 12, 2005
Does the Crossworks environment allow you to build a professional
quality program? Other than the compiler, are there big limitations of
Crossworks as opposed to the Keil and IAR tools?

Thank you for every opinion !

Hi,

As nobody has actually responded to this, I thought I'd take a stab.

Sure does. For instance Tyco support it and ADS for their GPS chipsets

I don't think there are any limitations at all.
