|Keil C Compilers & Development Kits|
Keil have long been well known for their 8051 Compiler and their Windows debugging environment. They are now owned by ARM and bring their expertise and tool set to the ARM range of micros.
|ARM||ARM Evaluation Board|
|Cosmic C Compilers|
Specialise in compiler for Freescale (Motorola) low cost CPUs and the ST10/166 range. Their debugger ZAP can either work with a simulator or for those CPUs which have Background Debug Modes (08, 12,16, CPU32) they will link to a target board via a BDM cable.
|Open source GCC and GDB Development Tools|
GCC is fast becoming a favourite tool set for those wishing to develop C code for high end CPUs such as the Power PC, ColdFire and the ARM to a large extent because it is free. A number of manufacturers of debugging tools now provide "Ready to Run" packages with a debug interface and the GCC compiler integrated, sometimes with a development board included.
