Open source GCC Development Tools


GCC is becoming a favourite tool set for those wishing to develop C code for high end CPUs such as the Power PC, ColdFire and ARM this is to a large extent because it is free.  But if you have not used GCC before what is needed to getting the Linux package going on a Windows system can look a bit daunting.  In order to cut this task short a number of manufacturers of debugging tools now provide the GCC compiler integrated into their development environments, sometimes even with a development board thrown in.  This means that the user can hit the ground running with a package that is delivered "Ready to Run".

COMSOL and its suppliers do not directly provide technical support for use of the GNU compiler.

Each package is described in more detail on its own web page

PEmicro support for ARM, Kinetis, ColdFire and Nexus

 

P&E Coldfire MCF5213 evaluation boardARM

PEmicro fully support development under a number of GCC based platforms by supplying a free GDB server that will work with their range of interfaces.

Package ColdFire Pro

For this PEmicro has USB interface cables that  provide access to the BDM interface on ColdFire range of microprocessors (or you could even include the CycloneMax and have a standalone programmer for production use) . The package includes all the interface hardware and software needed to start program development for the ColdFire range.  These are PEmicros popular Windows IDE and high level debugging package plus the EABI GCC precompiled by PEmicro to operate directly under the Windows environment without requiring the installation of a Unix shell. The compiler is integrated into WinIDE and allows for one-touch compilation of a C-level project with a binary that is loadable by PEmicro’s in-circuit flash programmer. A Quick start Manual and multiple template projects will quickly get you started on an interrupt driven firmware design

 

Package-NEXUS for PPC 55xx/56xx/57xx

PEmicro's PowerPC Nexus Interface  provide access to the JTAG interface on the  PPC 55xx/56xx/57xx range of microprocessors. The package includes all the interface hardware and software needed to start program development for the Nexus range.  These are a JTAG Cable, PEmicros popular Windows IDE and high level debugging package plus the EABI GCC precompiled by PEmicro to operate directly under the Windows environment without requiring the installation of a Unix shell. The compiler is integrated into WinIDE and allows for one-touch compilation of a C-level project. This compiler produces both the Elf/Dwarf 2.0 and S19 output formats. The Elf/Dwarf format is loadable by PEmicro’s in-circuit debugger and the S19 is loadable by PEmicro’s in-circuit flash programmer.
