Macraigor Systems has ported its proprietary on-chip debug technology, called OCDemon, to the ARM 1136, iMX31 and Intel Dual XScale 81342 processors and offers full GNU toolsets to be used with these processors and Macraigor Systems interfaces.
Engineers developing applications for these new processors can control and debug their hardware designs and application software without the use of other system resources such as UARTs, Ethernet channels or parallel ports. In addition to support from several debuggers, the company is offering a free port of the popular 6.3 version GNU toolkit (gcc, gas and gdb) for these processors on its website.
Macraigor’s JTAG interface devices are immediately available for the ARM7, ARM9, ARM11 and Intel XScale processor families. Fully installable versions of the GNU toolkits for both Windows and Linux are immediately available. These include demo programs allowing the end-user to be up and running within minutes of the installation. Also available on the Macraigor website is a version of OcdRemote, allowing users to use other versions of the GNU toolset with Macraigor’s hardware.
