ARM DS-5 supports the Freescale i.MX53 multimedia applications processors

(PresseBox) (Cambridge, UK, ) ARM® announces immediate support for the Freescale i.MX53 family of multimedia applications processors in the ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5(TM) ) and the DSTREAM target connection unit.

The i.MX535 is the latest member of Freescale's highly integrated, power-efficient, ARM Cortex(TM) -A8 based consumer multimedia applications processor family. The i.MX535 is the first i.MX processor to support 1080p multi-standard video playback with industry-leading low power consumption. With up to 1GHz core speed and a faster graphics core, it enables a more responsive user experience.

DS-5 supports code generation, board bring up, and Linux kernel, driver and application development on a wide range of ARM processor-based devices. DS-5 provides an integrated suite of tools with a powerful and intuitive graphical user interface, reducing development cost and shortening time to market.

DS-5 accelerates development on the Freescale i.MX535 and other supported ARM platforms by integrating the target's information in the design flow. With the DS-5 Debugger you can select a target device and the tools automatically configure the target connection and any other device-specific configuration.


DS-5 v5.4 is available now for Windows and Linux host platforms, and can be evaluated for 30 days free of charge by downloading it from
