Logic Technology: MDK-Professional supports heterogeneous systems

ARM released DS-MDK, the software development solution for heterogeneous systems that combine an ARM Cortex-A based computer system and a Cortex-M microcontroller. DS-MDK is part of the MDK-Professional edition and provides support for the NXP i.MX6 and i.MX7 series. CMSIS-Pack technology is used for device support, which provides Software Packs for device awareness, software frameworks, board support, and example projects.

The ARM Keil MDK Microcontroller Development Kit is the most comprehensive software development solution for Cortex processor-based microcontrollers. The MDK-Professional edition contains the new DS-MDK based on Eclipse and ARM DS-5 Development Studio technology. Software Packs for NXP's i.MX6 and i.MX7 are available with support for other devices including classic Cortex-M based microcontrollers available in the future.

The project management is Eclipse CDT based and can be extended with third-party plug-ins. The DS-MDK specific extensions cover several image viewers and the CMSIS-Pack management that provides access to documentation, the CMSIS framework, and software components. Cortex-M software development is easier and faster when using CMSIS and related software components such as device drivers, board support, and middleware. The ARM Compiler 5 generates the smallest code for Cortex-M to achieve best performance when executing from resource limited TCM (Tightly Coupled Memory).

The DS-5 Debugger connects via the ARM Keil ULINKpro and the gdbserver for verification of all software applications that execute in the heterogeneous computer system. Complete system visibility is essential for performance optimization and software validation. The DS-5 Debugger offers all standard features expected from a professional debugger. This includes program execution with run control, breakpoints and data watchpoints, memory views, variable watch windows, and terminal windows for serial communication. Complete system visibility is enabled using multiple simultaneous debug connections.
