For each Microprocessor chip family (over
are listed) our Tools Directory shows all software and hardware designed for that family and where necessary (Simulators, ICE, programmers) it shows which individual chips within the family are supported.
These low cost development tools are available for most
Freescale (Motorola) 8,16 and 32 bit processors as well as
ARM, Xscale and MIPS cpus.
useful both for prototype development and for small volume applications COMSOL can supply boards for the
ARM cores, ColdFire and many of the Freescale 8 bit micros.
For EPROMs ,Flash, LPI and SPI busses.
All but the smallest single chip applications benefit from the use of a real time executive. It simplifies the design stage, forces clear interfaces between parts and allows separate sections to be coded, tested and modified independently. We have a range of real-time executives to suite every need
and most CPUs.
Now that C is established as the universal high level language for embedded work the promise of reusable functions is beginning to be realised. Most communication with the outside world demands complex high level protocols such as
File structures, TCP/IP, FTP etc.
EBS provide C source code that simplifies this process and includes DOS files, PCMCIA, CDROM, Floppies, IDE, TCP/IP, FTP, NFS, PPP, Ethernet, SNMP, Mail, HTML web servers.
CMX-MicroNet provides TCP/IP, PPP and a web server all in under 20K bytes for 8/16/32 bit micros.
The user interface has increasingly become standardised on Windows compatible GUIs and for this PEG provides a low overhead portable Windows package. WebC is an embedable web browser based on PEG and the EBS stack
the heart of any microprocessor development facility. We have cross development software available for most micros.
Using only software and a few clever hardware tricks, these can provide a low cost software development environment.
this warrants a section to itself as the dominance of PCs has resulted in a powerful set of tools but few of them are directly applicable to embedded applications. COMSOL can supply powerful linkers, simulators and debuggers designed for the embedded engineer.
