ARM Announces Updated Version of In-Circuit Emulator
CAMBRIDGE, UK - Feb. 19, 2001 - ARM [(LSE:ARM); (Nasdaq:ARMHY)], the industry's leading provider of 16/32-bit embedded RISC microprocessor solutions, today launched Multi-ICE® 2.0 - the latest version of the popular ARM® JTAG-based In-Circuit Emulator (ICE).
The Multi-ICE 2.0 unit supports MultiTrace[tm], ARM's real-time debug, which provides a complete processor trace history around a trigger point, and enables debugging of foreground tasks while background tasks continue. The unit also enables memory contents to be changed while the microprocessor is running, ending time-consuming delays due to power-down/ power-up routines.
'The Multi-ICE 2.0 upgrade adds important new benefits to current technology," said Krista Salter, product manager, Development Systems, ARM. "This significantly enhanced functionality, built on our industry-proven technology, is the step forward that engineers have been looking for to speed software development cycles."
The Multi-ICE unit continues to support the ARM7[tm] and ARM9[tm] families. Multi-ICE 2.0 is an important enhancement as it adds support for ARM 9E[tm], ARM 10[tm] and the Intel® XScale[tm] microarchitecture. It offers on-chip debug of multiple ARM and mixed architecture devices. It can also support debug of slow or variable frequency designs, debug of very low-voltage cores and gives real-time debug support.
A free upgrade will be available to any ARM customer who purchased Multi-ICE 1.4 from 1st August 2000 onwards. Those who purchased a Multi-ICE 1.4 unit prior to that date and wish to upgrade will be charged $1,000 if they have a valid support contract (remaining support carried over) or $2,000 without. For new customers/OEMs, single unit pricing is $3,500.
