Release of innovative IDE for the RISC-V ecosystem

Embedded software development is one of the major focuses to work on in order to reduce time-to-market of microcontroller based products. To this end, the need for a complete and integrated development environment seems to be crucial. 

An industrial solution with ready-to-use and configurable MCU subsystems, together with advanced debug features, enables to facilitate and accelerate each software development phases.

After providing, in a free download, its innovative IDE supporting the RISC-V microcontrollers, Dolphin Integration has announced the availability of its new release: SmartVison 2.4.0. 

This new release is enhanced thanks to innovative features and the support of more RISC-V ISA extensions: 

  • Support of the ‘F’ instruction set extension for single precision floating point registers and operations.
  • New stack unwinding tool in the debug toolbox to speed up application program debug by giving access to program execution stack frames.
  • Several new pre-defined MCU subsystems based on the RV32 Tornado both in simulation and emulation for reducing application development time and for easily use RISC-V peripherals.
  • FreeRTOS support for RV32 Tornado to debug efficiently RTOS-based applications.
  • New intuitive wizard for the creation of RISC-V subsystem projects and the generation of RTL configuration files.

Moreover, a beta version of the virtual debug for RV32 Tornado is now available. It allows co-simulation of the RTL code along the C application software for instruction level debug with the possibility to visualise the complete design signals, design registers and the program variables.

As a reminder, SmartVision IDE is an open environment allowing the design of complete subsystems based on processor cores and peripherals. Its use for application software development and debug is two-fold; in simulation and on-chip.
SmartVision IDE is available in free download here.
