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:
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.
