How to create and modify a build configuration [video tutorial]

Posted by Magnus Unemyr on Sep 8, 2016 8:56:32 AM

ECLIPSE have an incredibly powerful and flexible build system, that drives the GNU GCC compiler and its associated assembler and linker. Many Atollic TrueSTUDIO users might be unaware of how easy it is to setup several build configurations, that build your project in different ways.
You can, for example, define a build configuration to setup a #DEFINE symbol, that modifies what code will be compiled into the FLASH binary using #IFDEF's, or you could build the project with different compiler options - e.g. with different optimization levels. Once the different build configurations are setup; you can easily build the project using any of the predefined build configurations, and thus get different binary FLASH images with virtually no effort.

Read "Advanced development & debugging of ARM-based devices" [whitepaper series]

Posted by Magnus Unemyr on Aug 23, 2016 10:30:00 AM

Old habits can prevent you from making progress. It is often said that even after a long time, you only use the features of a software product you tried when you first installed the product. And so, many ARM Cortex developers still use only basic methodologies like single-stepping, running to breakpoints, and printf() debugging - despite having much more powerful capabilities already installed in their tools.

Make sure you don't fall behind other embedded developers - read this whitepaper to find out what great time-saving and quality-improving capabilities smart developers enjoy!

Get started with TOPPERS / ASP RTOS

Posted by Mattias Norlander on May 18, 2016 3:19:41 PM

Have you heard about the ITRON (aka microITRON) project in Japan? ITRON is a Japanese open standard for real-time operating systems. The project started back in 1984 and was initiated by Ken Sakamura.

TOPPERS (Toyohashi Open Platform for Embedded Real-time Systems) is one flavour of ITRON RTOSes. It is open-source, and the documentaiton is released as open educational content.

Atollic TrueSTUDIO supports kernel-aware debugging of TOPPERS. The Atollic appointed distributor in Japan, AI Corporation, has written guides and created example projects, simplifying the getting started process with TOPPERS.

Getting Started with TrueSTUDIO - Archived Webinars

Posted by Stephen Martin on Mar 2, 2016 1:28:59 AM

We have posted archived videos of two recent webinars to the website: Getting Started with TrueSTUDIO Lite. These webinars cover the details on creating your first C project, using the TrueSTUDIO project wizard, working with build settings, importing a project from another toolchain, and using the debugger. We also answer participants questions about various aspects of using TrueSTUDIO.

With an archived webinar video you can stop, start, go back, and jump-forward so you can get the information you need at the pace that is right for you.
