Keil Software Releases DK-ARM Version 1.3
Plano, TX: Keil Software is pleased to announce the release of Version 1.3 of their DK-ARM Developer's Kit tool suite for ARM7 Devices. New in this version is device simulation and target debugging dialogs for the on-chip peripherals of the Philips LPC22xx and Analog Devices ADuC7000 Series.
"Accurate device simulation provides unlimited breakpoints and allows timing analysis of software algorithms. This is essential for software debugging of single-chip designs or hardware with just Flash memory since the Embedded ICE has limited capabilities on such systems." said Reinhard Keil, President, Keil Elektronik GmbH.
In addition to accurate device simulation, Version 1.3 adds support for the following:
The Keil CA ARM C Compiler, now in BETA release, generates very efficient code in Thumb mode and includes 32-bit floating-point support. Several example projects are included in the tool suite.
The Logic Analyzer, built-in to the µVision Simulator, allows developers to monitor signals, variables, and other program objects graphically in real-time. Cursor pop-ups provide details about time between points, frequency, and program location.
The Execution Profiler shows program execution by function-by-function, line-by-line, and instruction-by-instruction basis. Drill-down capabilities let developers find exactly where a program spends its time.
The DK-ARM Developer's Kit also provides:
An evaluation version of the DK-ARM Developer's Kit Version 1.3 may be downloaded from www.keil.com/demo.
