The Embest UNetICE, a low-cost, high-speed in-circuit JTAG emulator for ARM processors, is now available exclusively in the UK from Computer Solutions. UNetICE connects the USB or Ethernet port of a PC to the JTAG interface of the ARM target board and allows flash programming and debugging.
Development support for microprocessor devices based on the ARM Cortex architecture is now available on the Abatron BDI3000 high-speed debugger from Computer Solutions. The new cores supported are the ARM Cortex-A8, such as the TI OMAP3430 family, and the ARM Cortex-M3, which includes the STM32 family, the LPC1700 and the whole of the Luminary Micro LM3S range. Both device families are supported by the JTAG interface on the BDI3000, and there is additional support for the single-wire debug port (SW-DP). The BDI3000 then acts as an external server connecting to the popular GDB debugging package via Ethernet.
The BDI3000 is the latest in Abatron's popular range of BDM/JTAGJTAG interface for use with the GDB debugging package or as a flash programmer. They offers substantial performance enhancements compared with earlier models with support for GDB debugging and flash programming for ColdFire, PowerPC, ARM, Xscale and MIPS processors.
The Abatron BDI3000, now available in the UK from Computer Solutions, is the latest generation of Abatron's popular range of BDM/JTAG debuggers, and offers higher speed and performance enhancements compared with earlier models. Features of the BDI3000 include support for GDB debugging and flash programming for ColdFire, PowerPC, ARM, Xscale and MIPS processors. It will also support low-voltage processors down to 1.2 V.
The PCAN-FMS Toolkit from Computer Solutions is a new software package designed to carry out test and simulation functions on the CAN Bus Fleet Management System (FMS) protocols used by truck and bus manufacturers. The FMS protocols (FMS and Bus-FMS ISO 11992-1) are used by a number of leading bus and truck manufacturers to provide interoperability of systems installed on commercial vehicles and buses. They include a standard set of addresses and layouts for CAN messages used in these industries.
The new Ellisys USB Explorer 260 (EX260), now available in the UK from Computer Solutions, is a multifunction test generator and protocol analyser for the automated compliance testing of USB systems, including the ability to handle the forthcoming USB 3.0 'super-speed' transfers at 5 Gbit/s. The EX260 can analyse any USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 connection, including OTG and IC-USB systems, emulate USB hosts and devices, inject pre-defined error patterns for stress and error-recovery testing, and automatically verify compliance to the USB specification.
Enhanced versions of the P&E Cyclone, a family of debugging and programming tools for the Freescale families of microcontrollers, are now available from Computer Solutions. For the Freescale HC08/S08/R08, HC12/S12/S12X and v1 Coldfire (Flexis) microcontrollers, the Cyclone Pro links to the target board via the BDM or MON08 ports. It can function as a completely standalone programmer or, with its Ethernet and USB interfaces, either as a high-speed interactive BDM development tool or as a versatile automated programmer.
The Hi-Tech PIC18 PRO C compiler for the Microchip PIC18 family of microcontrollers, featuring a new compilation technique known as OSG (Omniscient Code Generator), is now available in the UK from Computer Solutions.
Now available from Computer Solutions are the Micro Digital range of USB drivers - the smxUSBH USB host stack, the smxUSBD USB device stack and the smxUSBO 'On-The-Go' stack - all of which help embedded developers by providing easy interfacing between their embedded systems and USB. The smxUSBD USB device stack is designed for situations in which a developer wants the embedded application to plug into a PC and exchange data with the PC or to be controlled by the PC.
A complete low-cost development package for the NXP (Philips) LPC range of ARM processors, consisting of an evaluation and experimental board, a GCC compiler, a JTAG interface, an IDE and debugger, as well as a host of application examples, is now available from Computer Solutions.
The P&E DEV5213CF development board, now available from Computer Solutions, is an ideal low-cost evaluation kit for developers of projects using the ColdFire MCF5213 processor. Despite the low cost of only £80, the board comes complete with a development package including a GCC compiler, making it equally useful as a development platform or as an introduction to any ColdFire processor or to the GCC compiler.
The new All-100 universal and gang programmer, available from Computer Solutions, is a versatile, high-speed unit for programming virtually every type of device with a programmable memory or configuration including EPROM, EEPROM, FLASH, PLD/CPLD/FPGA, microcontrollers, BPROM and Serial PROM.
An enhanced range of plug-in interfaces for CAN and LIN bus systems is now available from Computer Solutions. Some recent additions to the range include a CAN to PCMCIA interface, software for controlling and monitoring a CANopen network and a LIN/CAN gateway and interface.
Computer Solutions has been appointed as UK distributor of the Embest range of ARM Development tools. These include UNetICE, a low-cost, high-speed JTAG emulator for ARM processors, Debugging and Flash programming software to support it and a wide range of ARM Evaluation Boards.
Available in the UK from Computer Solutions, the Ellisys Explorer 300 Wireless USB analyser is said to be the industry's first protocol analyser to support the Certified Wireless USB and WiMedia ultra wideband (UWB) standards with data being taken over the air.
Computer Solutions has added a self-selection search capability to its Micro-Search web-based 8051 microcontroller database, allowing users to specify in detail those features they require in a micro for their application.
