ARM Releases Development Studio 5 v5.7, Including Support For The Recently Launched ARM Cortex-A7 And Xilinx ZYNQ 7000 EPP

26 October 2011

WHAT: ARM® announced today at TechCon™ 2011 the latest release of its reference software development tool suite, ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5™) v5.7. This new version consolidates the toolkit as a leading software development environment for ARM processors, ranging from ARM7TDMI® to the Cortex™-A15 MPCore™ and the recently introduced Cortex-A7.

DS-5 v5.7 also now includes seamless support for run-control debug and non-intrusive instruction trace for the new Xilinx® Zynq™-7000 Extensible Processing Platform (EPP). This combines a dual-core Cortex-A9 and Xilinx 28nm unified programmable logic architecture.

"The breakthrough Zynq-7000 family offers unique flexibility to system developers so they can create a customized platform around the Cortex-A9 MPCore processor. This will address a wide range of market applications and reduce the overall system bill of materials,” said Lawrence Getman, VP of Processing Platforms, Xilinx. “The integration with professional tools, such as the ARM DS-5 and DSTREAM™, simplifies the software development process with access to debug, trace and performance analysis tools in one comprehensive and easy to use tool suite.” He added.

WHY: In addition to the extended processor support, DS-5 v5.7 enables developers to benefit from the new dual Cortex-A9 MPCore Real-Time System Model (RTSM). This simulated platform helps to accelerate the software development cycle by allowing test and debug of parallelised code ahead of hardware availability. The latest release of DS-5 also includes support for the most advanced ARM technologies, such as TrustZone® and hardware virtualization. This makes the toolkit perfectly suited for a wide range of target applications, from small embedded sensors to high-end smartphones and low-power servers.
