NXP Semiconductors has unveiled the new BeyondStudio IDE for the JN516x range of wireless microcontrollers for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The comprehensive software development environment, developed by Beyond Semiconductor, dramatically simplifies the development of software on the JN516x family – improving code density, reducing development time and improving code quality. Used in conjunction with the Beyond Debug Key, it provides full access to the JTAG software debug feature of the chips, simplifying and accelerating the development process.
- A highly optimized C/C++ compiler, linker and assembler controlled through an intuitive graphical interface for smaller code size and better performance;
- Advanced debugging in conjunction with the Beyond Debug Key, including source level debugging, hardware PC breakpoint and data watchpoint support on JN516x chips through a JTAG interface;
- Tight integration of JN516x specific functionality, including integral flash programming, for faster development
- Graphical source code editing, project setup, management and build control for rapid software development
BeyondStudio for NXP is available from the NXP Wireless connectivity TechZone and is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7 onwards.
