Code Confidence announces tools validation for eCos on 68K/ColdFire

June 3, 2010 -- CAMBRIDGE, UK -- Code Confidence Ltd, the embedded software tooling specialists, today announced the validation of their professional development tools with 68K/ColdFire® architecture hardware. A complete set of GNU tools for 68K/ColdFire is now available within the latest revision of the Code Confidence Tools for eCos.

Based on the award-winning Eclipse™ Platform and C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT), the Code Confidence™ Tools provide a fully-integrated development environment for application developers working with the eCos® real-time operating system. Product features include project creation wizards, an advanced configuration editor, C/C++ editor integration, performance-optimized GNU toolchains and kernel-aware debug views which simplify and accelerate eCos application debugging.

As part of the validation process, Code Confidence has demonstrated its ThreadSpy™ thread-aware debugging technology working with ColdFire BDM on-chip debug hardware. ThreadSpy provides access to the call stack of each thread and the value of thread-local data within each stack frame, allowing eCos developers to choose a JTAG- or BDM-based solution for debugging without sacrificing the thread-aware capabilities typically provided by remote debugging stubs. GDB thread-specific breakpoints are fully supported.

"This validation extends the coverage of our embedded development software to another popular processor architecture." commented John Dallaway, Director at Code Confidence. "eCos developers working with ColdFire hardware can now take full advantage of the productivity gains afforded by the Code Confidence Tools."
