Development Tools for Cortex-A Processors
ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5) is available now for free for qualified universities! DS-5 makes it easy to develop applications for ARM applications processors. It reduces your learning curve, shortens the development and testing cycle, and helps you build reliable applications quickly.
Development Tools for Microcontrollers
ARM/Keil Microcontroller Development Kit (MDK-ARM) is available now for free for qualified universities! It features the industry-standard compiler from ARM, the Keil µVision IDE, and sophisticated debug and data trace capabilities. MDK-ARM offers tailored support for all Cortex-M processor-based devices, and is the recommended solution for students working with standard ARM-based MCU devices. We suggest that students and universities download the free evaluation version of the tools, which offers all the features of the standard version, but with a 32K byte object code/data limit.
