PLS' Universal Debug Engine (UDE) now also supports netX controllers and rcX real-time operating system from Hilscher
Optimized development tool for netX network controller based embedded applications
Hilscher's netX family of ARM9-based network controllers offers a computing capacity of up to 200 MIPS, up to four communication channels and an on-chip central data switch, and guarantees maximum data throughput in Fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet systems. Furthermore, depending on the type, users are provided with comprehensive peripheral functions such as AD Converter, PWM and Display Controller in combination with interfaces such as UARTs, USB Port, SPI Bus and I2C. With help of the UDE 3.0.8, these on-chip peripheral modules can be visualized and configured in the debugger at symbolic level in text form. In addition, a full Eclipse integration with complete cross-debugger functionality is included in the comprehensive test and debug tool UDE 3.0.8. A hardware extension for Embedded Trace Macrocell (ETM) is also available.
The rcX real-time operating system, which is specifically tailored to the architecture of the netX controllers, is a pre-emptive, multitasking operating system with a very low resources requirement. The rcX add-on for the UDE 3.0.8 or higher provides the user with a complete representation of the operating system objects. Own views show the application instances of tasks, queues, mutexes, semaphores, interrupts and UARTS with their characteristics and current status. The active task and the stack utilization of all stacks are recognizable at a glance.
Über pls Programmierbare Logik & Systeme GmbH
PLS Programierbare Logik & Systeme GmbH, based in Lauta, Germany, was founded in 1990 by Thomas Bauch and Dr. Stefan Weisse. With its innovative modular test and development tools, the company has demonstrated for over two decades its position as an international technology leader in the field of debuggers, emulators and trace solutions for 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. The software architecture of the Universal Debug Engine (UDE) guarantees optimal conditions for debugging SoC-based systems. For example, by means of the intelligent use of modern on-chip debugging and on-chip trace units, valuable functions such as profiling and code coverage are available for the system optimization. Furthermore, the associated Universal Access Device (UAD2/UAD3+) product family, with transfer rates of up to 3.5 MBytes/s and a wide range of interfaces, offers entirely new dimensions for fast and flexible access to multi-core systems. Important architectures such as TriCore, Power Architecture, XC2000/XE166, ARM, Cortex, SH-2A, XScale and C166/ST10 as well as simulation platforms of different vendors are supported.
