ARM launches DS-5 development tools for Linux-based systems

Features eclipse-based project manager with support for multiple workspaces and projects

By CBR Staff Writer

ARM has launched the Keil Development Studio 5 (DS-5) Application Edition, a software development tool suite that simplifies the development of Linux and Android native applications for ARM processor-based systems.

According to ARM, the DS-5 Application Edition features an eclipse-based project manager with support for multiple workspaces and projects, and C/C++ and assembler code editing functions. It also includes a fully featured Linux application debugger with detailed graphical views and processor control mechanisms, and a model of the Cortex-A8 processor-based SoC for Linux development.

The company said that the new DS-5 is preconfigured to support development boards including the OMAP35x processor-based BeagleBoard and Texas Instruments (TI) OMAP35x evaluation module. It automates downloading applications and libraries to the target’s file system, starting them and connecting the debugger. In addition, it includes two Linux example projects, the Gnometris application and the Libgames-support shared library.

DS-5 Application Edition supports Linux and Android native application development with a GNU compiler optimised for ARM Linux and an ethernet or serial connection to the target, ARM said.
