ARM has released the Keil MDK-Fujitsu Microcontroller Development Kit, a C/C++ software development environment for its CortexM3 processor-based microcontroller Fujitsu FM3 microcontroller family.
The new MDK-Fujitsu claimed to help customers to accelerate development efficiency and decrease time-to-market.
MDK-Fujitsu includes ARM C/C++ cCompiler, µVision4 IDE, CMSIS, DSP-Library, Debugger, Simulator, and RTX RTOS.
Fujitsu Semiconductor MCU Solutions Business Unit MCU Business Div vice-president Toshiyuki Teramoto said ARM now provides a tailored version of MDK-ARM Microcontroller Development Kit with Keil MDK-Fujitsu, which contains efficient ARM C/C++ compiler and the Keil µVision IDE/Debugger.
"Now customers are able to develop applications for the Fujitsu FM3 family microcontrollers more easily and efficiently," Teramoto said.
The MDK-Fujitsu Debugger connects to several adapters including Segger JLINK, the Keil ULINK2, ULINK-ME, and ULINKpro debug adapters.
With the new release, software engineers can reduce development time by analysing software performance of a FM3 family MCU with ULINKpro ETM Streaming trace.
The new MDK-Fujitsu supports all FM3 family MCUs with set-up files, Flash programming algorithm, and device-specific debug views.
ARM MCU tools director Reinhard Keil said with the new MDK-Fujitsu it will offer a development tool kit tailored for the Fujitsu FM3 MCU family.
"MDK-Fujitsu connects via the ULINK debug adapter family to all Fujitsu FM3 family evaluation kits and provides debugging awareness for FM3 family peripherals," Keil said.
The Fujitsu FM3 family offers peripherals for Ethernet, USB, CAN, and LCD. MDK-Fujitsu may be upgraded to MDK-Professional that includes ready-to-use middleware for these communication peripherals."
