Unrestricted cross debugger for the Eclipse Platform

Convenient Eclipse plug-in for all Universal Debug Engine supported microcontroller architectures

(PresseBox) ( Lauta, )
A special plug-in, now provided with the Universal Debug Engine (UDE) 2.6 from pls Programmierbare Logik & Systeme at no extra cost, enables a separate debug perspective for Eclipse-based platforms. The tool, offered as a feature installation package, offers in contrast to other conventional market solutions the advantage that the complete functionality of the UDE as cross debugger under Eclipse is retained without having to compromise. It can be simply installed with Eclipse's own mechanism. Operation in "RCP stand-alone application mode" is also possible.

In order to ensure maintaining the range of functions, the UDE's own workspace file, a location for storing configuration settings of the debugger, is fully integrated in the Eclipse workspace. Subsequently, a debug session can be defined simply as Eclipse launch configuration and started from the C/C++ editor. Display of the instruction pointer is carried out synchronously in all perspectives. Breakpoints can be set both in the C/C++ editor and by debugger-specific functions. Their display is also synchronous. Furthermore, C/C++ editors can also be used in the UDE Eclipse perspective.

The paths of the source files are read by the debug plug-in direct from the Eclipse workspace. This ensures a maximum consistency during the development phase, which in turn means that, as a rule, the common complex path management with large projects is not necessary.

The Eclipse plug-in is available for all UDE 2.6 supported microcontroller architectures and families including TriCore, PowerArchitecture, SH-2A, XC2000 / XE166, ARM, Cortex, XScale and C166 / ST10. Even the management of several debugger instances for multi-core debugging is supported, without limitations.

The tool can be used both in preconfigured installations, based on the Eclipse platform 3.4 (Ganymede) and Eclipse C/C++ Development Tools (CDT) 5.0, and on self-configured Eclipse CDT platforms.

PLS Programmierbare Logik & Systeme GmbH

pls Programierbare Logik & Systeme GmbH, based in Lauta, Germany, was founded in 1990 by Thomas Bauch and Dr. Stefan Weisse. With its innovative modular test and development tools, the company has demonstrated for almost two decades its position as an international technology leader in the field of debuggers, emulators and trace solutions for 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. The software architecture of the Universal Debug Engine (UDE) guarantees optimal conditions for debugging SoC-based systems. For example, by means of the intelligent use of modern on-chip debugging and on-chip trace units, valuable functions such as profiling and code coverage are available for the system optimization. Furthermore, the associated Universal Access Device 2 (UAD2) product family, with transfer rates of up to 3.5 MBytes/s and a wide range of interfaces, offers entirely new dimensions for fast and flexible access to multi-core systems. Important architectures such as TriCore, PowerArchitecture, SH 2A, XC2000/XE166, ARM, Cortex, XScale and C166/ST10 as well as simulation platforms of different vendors are supported.
