SEGGER offers Compiler Porting Service

Pick your Tool-Chain – SEGGER offers Compiler Porting Service

GCC-based tool-chains have become very sophisticated, and as a result, quite popular. Due to numerous requests and SEGGER’s more than 20 years of experience of working with multiple embedded development environments, SEGGER now offers a professional tool-chain porting service. This service enables the migration of a project from one tool-chain (IDE and Compiler) to another. The service includes every aspect of migration:

C and Assembly files are modified as necessary, linker and setup files are created, and a project is created specifically for the newly chosen target tool-chain which mirrors the configurations found in the original project. The end developer typically needs less than half a day to be up and running with his new tool-chain.

The porting service can pay for itself, especially when moving from an expensive proprietary commercial tool-chain to a GCC-based one.

There are multiple reasons to take advantage of this service which include:

  • No dependency on a particular vendor
  • Remove problems with license management
  • Increase productivity
  • Reduced cost
  • Better editor/debugger
  • More flexibility

Porting from one tool-chain to another is easiest and therefore least expensive, if the firmware is based on SEGGER middleware.


“Due to years of experience with different tool-chains, it is easy for our engineers to migrate projects from one tool-chain to another. We do it all the time. And, with the obvious trend found in our industry, of companies moving to GCC-based tool-chains, a porting service to help facilitate this only makes sense. We find that companies are switching to all forms of GCC-based tool-chains, be they Visual-Studio-Style or Eclipse, commercial or free. Anybody who is interested in changing tool-chains is welcome to talk to us”, says Ivo Geilenbruegge, Managing Director of SEGGER.
