Integrated Development Suite for ColdFire
IAR announced its YellowSuite for ColdFire microcontrollers that promote a natural design flow from the beginning of a development project, integrating the necessary tools to produce a working design. The development tools included are proprietary Embedded Workbench for building and debugging the application, visualSTATE for design, validation, test and verification of the control logic, PowerPac RTOS file system and associated middleware, and a KickStart Kit to test the application on real hardware. Embedded Workbench, with support for ColdFire V1 and V2 cores, is a set of development tools that are combined in an integrated development environment (IDE) for programming embedded applications. With its built-in chip-specific code optimizer, it generates efficient FLASH/PROMable code for ColdFire devices.
