Software and tools for multi-core systems (MESTD - 32031)


Development of the software application that provides comfortable working environment of embedded software applications was always a difficult task to achieve. To reach this goal it was necessary to integrate all specific tools designed for that purpose. This paper describes Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that was developed to meet all specific needs of a software development for the family of multi-core target platforms designed for a digital signal processing in Cirrus Logic Company. Eclipse platform and RCP (Rich Client Platform) was used as a basis, because it provides an extensible plug-in system for customizing the development environment. CLIDE (Cirrus Logic Integrated Development Environment) represent the epilog of that effort, reliable IDE used for development of embedded applications. Validation of the solution is accomplished thru 2641 J Unit tests that validate most of the CLIDE's functionalities. Developed IDE (CLIDE) significantly increases a quality of a software development for multi-core systems and reduces time-to-market, thereby justifying development costs.
