Cambridge, UK Embedded software tools developer, Crossware, has joined Motorola's Design Alliance Program.
The company's ColdFire Development Suite supports Motorola's range of MCF528X microcontrollers as well as the other series 2, 3 and 4 ColdFire microprocessors, and allows developers to create, build and debug their ColdFire programs both with and without hardware.
Alan Harry, Crossware's founder and CEO, said, “As well as gaining a presence on Motorola's web site, we will have early access to numerous resources including training, datasheets, development tools, and technical support – all of which should enable us to improve the performance of our own development tools.”
Crossware is a developer of C cross compilers and other development tools for embedded systems based on the 8051, ColdFire, 68000, CPU32 and other chip families. Host environments include Windows 9x, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
