Hash: SHA1

Linux powers OMAP3x bring-up tool

,----[ Quote ]
| A start-up specializing in Linux-based embedded system test tools has 
| announced its first product. Espian says its "Espian System Debugger" 
| combines a hardware debugger, oscilloscope, and logic analyzer into a single 
| small device both powered by and aimed at bring-up of TI OMAP3x-series 
| RISC/DSP processors.     



Simultaneous ARM Linux Kernel & Apps Debug From Pls Germany

,----[ Quote ]
| pls Programmierbare Logik & Systeme, a member of the ARM Connected Community,
| has rolled out its ‘ARM9 Linux Support’ add-on which it said provides a
| comfortable user interface for simultaneous ARM Linux kernel and application
| debugging.



Germany Company Debuts High Speed Debug With Linux Support

,----[ Quote ]
| The UDE 2.4 immediately supports NXP Semiconductor's LPC32x0 microcontroller
| family. Built around a 90-nm, 208-MHz ARM926EJ-S CPU core and a Vector
| Floating Point (VFP) coprocessor, the NXP LPC32x0 family is designed for
| applications that require high performance, high integration, and low power
| consumption, such as demanding industrial, consumer, medical and network
| applications.


High-speed debug access via JTAG, more efficient program/data trace and Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The devices are designed for up to 208 MHz system clock and are based on an
| ARM9EJ-S core with Embedded Trace Module (ETM) and integrated Vector Floating
| Point coprocessor. Moreover, depending on the derivative, up to 256 Kbytes of
| SRAM, an external Flash interface and various peripheral functions such as
| 10/100 Mbit Ethernet, USB controller including host capability and 24-bit LCD
| controller for STN and TFT panels are available to the user.


pls: ARM9 Linux support add-on for Universal Debug Engine

,----[ Quote ]
| pls Programmierbare Logik & Systeme announces immediate availability of
| the 'ARM9 Linux Support' add-on as an option for its Universal Debug Engine.


Linux-aware debugger supports multi-core ARM

,----[ Quote ]
| The combination of SourcePoint and Arium's trace analyzers and JTAG emulators
| enables real-time debugging with all core frequencies, says Arium. The
| products are said to work with popular compiler tool chains and support
| industry-standard input file formats. Linux-specific support includes
| symbolic, source-level debugging of Linux kernel code (including loadable
| modules), and applications such as shared libraries. Arium also touts its
| support for kernel debug straight out of reset, dynamic debug of loaded Linux
| modules, and Linux console output through the JTAG port.


Kernel space: finally, a kernel debugger for Linux?

,----[ Quote ]
| A built-in debugger for the kernel is one missing feature that some
| enterprise vendors have added. Will the mainstream kernel be able to agree on
| an approach to this surprisingly contentious issue?


Why Linux won the embedded market?

,----[ Quote ]
| One story not told often enough involves Linux’ growing domination of the
| embedded market.


Linux still top embedded OS

,----[ Quote ]
| In a new whitepaper on Linux in the embedded market, VDC researchers cite the
| following reasons for Linux's popularity:
|     * Licensing cost advantages
|     * Flexibility of source code access
|     * General familiarity
|     * Maturing ecosystem of applications and tools
|     * Growing developer experience with Linux as an embedded OS


Embedded Linux research report ships

,----[ Quote ]
| EDC noted that some 40 percent of the survey's 500 respondents were targeting
| embedded Linux.
| [...]
| Also in the earlier reports, Andrews observed that the need for RTOS source
| code was "one of the reasons that proprietary RTOSes created in-house for a
| specific system have long been popular, and now it's a primary motivating
| factor in the adoption of Embedded Linux."
| The now completed survey results are said to include "expert analysis" from
| Ann Thryft, a 20-year industry veteran. The report includes chapters on
| platforms, processors, tools, languages, security, target devices, mobile
| development, and of course, Linux.
