MUNICH, Germany Pls Programmierbare Systeme (Lauda, Germany) has extended its Universal Debug Engine (UDE) for use with Freescale i.MX25 multimedia application processors.
The UDE offers support for C/C++, a configurable user interface, symbol browser, configurable tool bars, and context sensitive menus. Since the system supports standard scripting languages, the debugging process is highly automatable, the vendor claims.
Users can visualize and configure peripheral modules on a symbolic level. In order to monitor and simulate CAN bus signals, the system provides an integrated CAN recorder. In addition, it supports programming of external NAND flash components.
If the debug system runs under embedded Linux, the Universal Debug Engine supports kernel and application to be debugged in parallel under a common user interface. The i.MX25 module is connected to the debugging platform via JTAG interface with data rates of up to 1 Mbyte/s.
Freescale's iMX25 processors are based on modified ARM architectures and aim at automotive infotainment applications.
