Macraigor Systems offers free GNU toolset for Eclipse
Macraigor Systems is a member of the Eclipse Foundation as an Add-In Provider. In this role, Macraigor works with Eclipse projects, particularly the C/C++ Developer Toolkit, to ensure that embedded development and debugging tools play a significant role in the advancement of the Eclipse platform.
The Eclipse platform provides embedded developers with an integrated platform for building and debugging systems and software. This platform enables different tools to share a common look and feel while providing accessibility within the same framework. It is also possible to customize the environment with a unique tool profile, depending on the type of embedded development being done. Engineers can also add other tools to the Eclipse environment to fill out a customized development platform for greater productivity.
The Macraigor Eclipse + GNU Tools Suite is an implementation that packages Eclipse 3.4.1, several of the open source GNU tools and utilities, and a program called OCDRemote, which provides an interface between Eclipse, the GDB debugger and a Macraigor On-Chip debug device. The GNU tools provided by Macraigor Systems include binutils, gcc, gdb and gdbutil.
In addition to the freely available GNU toolset, users can run the following Macraigor software tools from Eclipse's External Tools menu:
,li>DCCTerminal This ARM7/ARM9 Debug Communications Channel provides virtual terminal debug capabilities.
Eclipse, especially with the new Ganymede release, is rapidly becoming the development environment of choice for building and debugging embedded systems, said James MacGregor, managing partner of Macraigor Systems LLC. By incorporating the free GNU development and debugging toolset into Eclipse, we are making it possible for embedded systems engineers to use the tools they are familiar with on a platform that improves their productivity.
