ARM has released a device support within the RealView family of development tools for Freescale i.MX31 multimedia applications processors.

The device support is provided to enable embedded developers to start development on Freescale i.MX31 processors quickly. The device also enables developers to connect to their development board using RealView Development Suite and the RealView ICE debug probe without the need for extensive hardware bring-up. This will accelerate time-to-market for popular multimedia-based products such as portable media players, automotive communications devices, and 3D gaming handsets while ensuring best-in-class feature performance.

The device helps auto-configure debug connection with the push of a button in RealView ICE debug hardware and software with accelerated hardware bring-up. The RealView Debugger's Extended Target Visibility provides memory map and register visibility for on and off-chip peripherals. It also features seamless connection to flash memory via RealView Debugger or the new Eclipse-based Flash Programmer plug-in from ARM, which provides easy programming of flash.

In addition, the initialization and configuration scripts for the Zoom LiteKit development board for Freescale i.MX31 processors are included in example projects within the RealView Development Suite plug-ins for Eclipse IDE, assisting with verification of a connection to the development board. Project templates with preconfigured settings for Freescale i.MX31 development are also available to help developers to create new projects without additional project customization.

The ARM RealView Development Suite is a comprehensive, end-to-end solution for software development that supports all ARM processors and ARM debug technology. RealView tools offer the high-performance ARM C/C++ compilers and support the most advanced debug technology available today for bringing up the latest SoC and ASIC designs.

ARM RealView enhanced support features for Freescale i.MX31 multimedia applications processors are available now, free-of-charge via electronic download to new and existing RealView Development Suite and RealView ICE customers.
