Andes: RISC-V IDE available for free download
Andes Technology announced the free download of its AndeSight Integrated Development Environment to accelerate software development for RISC-V based SoC. AndeSight IDE is a professional IDE based on Eclipse with many useful Andes add-on features, developed and widely used over the past 13 years, which provides an efficient way to develop embedded applications for RISC-V based SoC.
In an era of ever-changing embedded products, to pursue an easy, flexible design environment and to save efforts of hardware designers and software programmers, AndeSight integrates all environments for hardware and software from simulators, FPGA, to final SoCs to provide a complete software development solution. Empowered by AndeSight, RISC-V developers can run benchmarks and evaluate algorithm performance easily using a near-cycle accurate simulator. Based on Eclipse, AndeSight has many additional user-friendly features to help reduce development time. These include Meta linker script editor, Flash in-system-programming, Virtual hosting, Meta-file-based bit-field viewer for SoC registers, Script-based RTOS awareness debugging, Break and display on exceptions, Function profiling, Code coverage, Function code size, Stack size analysis. AndeSight also comes with a highly optimized compiler to deliver best-in-class performance and code density.
AndeSight for Andes RISC-V cores, N25/N25F, NX25/NX25F, A25 and AX25, is available for free download now. The free download version is a full-featured AndeSight with a three-month time limit.
