Macraigor Systems LLC announced additional support for the low-power, high-performance AMD Geode NX processor family. According to the press statement, debugging and control of this chip will be supported by all Macraigor debug solutions when it is used with the ocdemon family of products.

"Macraigor's OCDemon family of products offers an extensive feature set for embedded, low-power applications. Developers building thin clients, single-board computers, routers and set-top boxes now have robust debug capabilities geared for x86 performance applications," commented Erik Salo, director of marketing for the microprocessor solutions sector of AMD.

Macraigor disclosed that they also updated the free, pre-built Gnu tools suite to include sample configurations for AMD evaluation boards. These examples contain source, gdbinit and make files for each board. The demo program allows developers to build, download and debug via gdb using only two commands.

Macraigor's debugging solutions include a broad range of hardware interface devices and application programs. These provide embedded systems engineers with a high degree of flexibility in selecting a host interface and an appropriate price/performance ratio for their embedded projects. Hardware debug devices are available with parallel, serial, USB or Ethernet connectivity to both Windows and Linux host machines.

Debug application programs are available to support an embedded project through the entire development cycle, from troubleshooting a prototype hardware design to writing and debugging boot code, programming in-circuit Flash devices, developing application-level software and supporting manufacturing burn-in and testing.

"The AMD Geode architecture enables manufacturers of audio, video, graphics and communications products to meet and exceed users' price/performance demands," said Craig Haller, chief engineer of Macraigor. "The OCDemon technology is a proven on-chip debug solution that will help to accelerate our customers' development of real-time processing applications."
