First third-party plug-in for popular embedded tool suite.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 14, 2008 -- Quadros Systems, Inc., a leading supplier of configurable and scalable real-time operating systems (RTOS) today announced that the kernel-aware debug module for the RTXC Quadros RTOS is now available for the Keil™ µVision debugger for ARM7™ and ARM9™ families and Cortex™-M3 processors. The advanced kernel analysis tool displays detailed data about kernel activity enabling developers to quickly identify and resolve performance problems in their application. This is the first announced third-party plug-in for the ARM® RealView® Microcontroller Development Kit (MDK), which features the Keil µVision debugger, and will work with the entire RTXC kernel family: RTXC Single Stack, RTXC Multi-stack and RTXC Dual Mode.
Effective embedded system debugging requires an intimate knowledge of kernel objects and their interrelationship to the application. Kernel awareness aids in the complex decoding of memory content to solve even the simplest of problems. However, embedded debugging environments, such as the Keil µVision debugger, because they are RTOS-agnostic, have generic memory and register displays that cannot display data structures specific to third-party RTOSes. The RTXC Quadros kernel awareness module presents a well-organized set of views for RTXC Quadros kernel objects and the data associated with each instance of these objects. These viewing windows are fully integrated into the Keil µVision IDE.
The RTXC Quadros kernel awareness module presents graphical views of the state of all kernel objects at a debugger breakpoint. The module does not require any footprint or agents on the target processor. Other kernel awareness packages require agents on the target which eventually have to be removed, followed by an additional test and
