ARM has joined the Eclipse Foundation as an Add-In Provider.
September 20, 2006 -- Membership in the Eclipse Foundation enables ARM to work more closely with Eclipse, one of the largest open-source communities today, which focuses on providing an extensible development platform for building software. Major technology companies, startups, universities, research institutions and individuals contribute to Eclipse, promoting interoperability in development tools and significantly reducing the overall costs associated with software development. The Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE) has grown in popularity among embedded systems designers in recent years, particularly as increased support for C and C++ development tools has become available.
ARM currently offers Eclipse IDE support as an option in the RealView® Development Suite 3.0 solution, enabling developers to use Eclipse as a project manager to create, build, debug and manage C and C++ projects for ARM® targets. With the RealView Eclipse Plug-in, developers can take advantage of a rich variety of Eclipse-based development tools, together with the best-in-class compilation and debug technology available through the RealView Development Suite solution.
The RealView Eclipse Plug-in can be downloaded from www.arm.com/eclipse/index.html.
