XMOS Launches New Version of XCore Processor Development Tools with Graphical Run-Time Analyzer

(PresseBox) ( Bristol, UK / Burlingame, Calif., )
XMOS®, developer of the industry's first event-driven 32-bit microcontroller, has launched a major new release of its development tool set that includes a graphical run-time analyzer, which enables realtime tracing of program execution and data. This accelerates the development of XMOS-based embedded applications.

A major issue facing today's real-time developers when debugging applications is that inserting software trace or print commands into code streams introduces significant overhead and makes results unreliable. To solve this development problem, XMOS has created XScope, a graphical debugging tool that enables the values of variables to be traced and analyzed when real-time programs are executed.

XScope exploits XMOS technology to stream tracing information directly from the system under development. An XMOS processor forwards debug data streams to the host, providing predictable, application-level tracing and analysis of real-time applications without impacting real-time performance.

The integrated XDE viewer provides the user with graphical feedback. The values of variables are set against the execution time line of the application, giving the developer a clear picture of the real-time performance of their system.

Additional features in the new tools release include XMOS Update, a configurable software module that automatically notifies developers when new versions of development tools, documentation and software-defined peripherals are available. A video with additional information about XScope is available on YouTube.

Pricing and Availability

XMOS Release 11.2 software development tools are immediately available for Microsoft Windows, Apple OSX and Linux host environments. The development tool kit can be downloaded at no charge at www.xmos.com.

About XMOS

XMOS is transforming the way in which electronic products are designed. Its revolutionary event-driven multi-core processors make it easy to build systems entirely in software. XMOS designers enjoy the fastest route from idea to product, using standard programmable chips to create complete systems combining interface, DSP and control software. For designers in leading electronics brands, entrepreneurs and researchers, XMOS enables innovation and dramatically reduces costs. XMOS is based in Bristol (UK), Sunnyvale (CA, USA) and Chennai (India) with sales offices and representatives across the world.
