Microprocessor and 8bit MCU supplier Zilog Inc. has announced the availability of its Zilog Developer Studio II (ZDS II), free of charge, on the company's website.

According to Zilog, ZDS II is an established IDE that provides a suite of software tools to support development with the company's product lines. It includes a Microsoft Windows-based project environment, editor, project manager, C compiler, assembler, linker, librarian, simulator and debugger, the company said.

"We believe that giving free and open access to our development environment and software enables engineers to evaluate and learn about our newest microcontrollers without any barriers or risk," said Jim Thorburn, Zilog chairman and CEO, in a statement.

Zilog said ZDS II simplifies code development and helps bring products to market more rapidly. The company also described the tool as a useful resource for writing "code snippets" to test ideas or write functions. The tool is also useful for developing classes and workshops, according to Zilog.
