The new Imagecraft ICCV8 for ARM Cortex supports most popular ARM Cortex-M3 devices, and is expected to support M0 and M4 devices in early 2013.
This Embedded Development Suite for ARM Cortex microcontrollers includes an ANSI C compiler and the powerful and easy-to-use CodeBlocks IDE. It is designed to integrate well with the J-Link and J-Link EDU JTAG emulators.
Note: This development suite is in the early stages of development, so not all features are implemented as of March 18, 2013. These include M0 Instruction Set support, M4 Instruction Set Support, PRO version optimizations, 64-bit Floating Point, Cortex-M Bitfield instructions, and Bitband memory alias. The software provides free upgrades for six months, and there is a low-cost annual maintenance contract available also. The features list below shows both what is implemented now and what will be implemented soon.
ICCV8 for ARM Cortex Features
The Professional version includes the ImageCraft Debugger application. This C source debugger is fully integrated with the CodeBlocks IDE, and has native J-Link support. This means that there are no additional setup steps required to get started with Flash programming. It features unlimited Flash breakpoints, and both C- and Assembly-level debugging.
- CodeBlocks IDE (C::B) — a modern cross-platform IDE with features such as code folding, workspace and project management, one-click access to a function definition, etc.
- No need to write linker file; select device by name and C::B IDE generates all the necessary compiler and linker flags for memory assignment
- Comprehensive target support
- CMSIS (Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard) compliant code
- ANSI C compiler
- Assembler / Linker
- Documentation — both as HTML page and as PDF file
- Technical support
Three Versions Available The ICCCortex is available in Standard, Professional and low-cost Non-commercial versions. Their features are outlined below:
- Standard — ANSI C (C89 with extensions) compiler for ARM Cortex M code generation. CodeBlocks IDE with easy target selection, editor, project manager, code browser. 32-bit Floating Point support. Code size limited to 64K. Built-in support for device Flash programming using J-Link units. Debugger is limited to a single breakpoint.
- Professional — Same as above except with no code size limit, no breakpoint limit, and with 64-bit Floating Point support. Also includes: A subset of MISRA safety checks for more robust code. MIO Global Optimizer and other optimizations. Cross module type checking for function calls and data references. Integrated ImageCraft Debugger.
- Non-commercial — Similar to Standard, i.e. code size limit of 64K, single breakpoint. No floating-point support. By selecting this option, you agree that you will not use the product for any commercial uses, including but not limited to prototyping for potential products.
USB License Dongle Option This compiler is tied to a single Windows PC via a unique hardware key generated for that machine. If you would like to use the license on different PCs, or just have peace of mind against ever needing to reformat your system, be sure to select the USB License Dongle option below.
Web Download This software is available as a web download only. You will be emailed the license key information unless you also select the USB License Dongle, in which case a dongle will be shipped to you. Please allow a few days for the license key and/or USB dongle to be created; you can use the software immediately upon download while you wait for your license key or dongle, as it functions fully for 45 days without a license (though the debugger will be limited to one breakpoint and 64K of code).
Download ICCV8 for ARM Cortex (EXE file). If you do not purchase a license, then your use must be non-commercial only, and after 45 days, it will function as a demo with a code size limitation and no debugging support.
