CPU & Device Support
Embedded Studio supports development and debugging for virtually any ARM or RISC-V-based device. Using the Project Wizard and J-Link support, basic projects can be created with just a few clicks.
Creating comprehensive projects pre-configured for hardware is possible thanks to Embedded Studio Support Packages. These include memory layout, system initialization & interrupt vectors.
Embedded Studio is designed for developing and debugging on any device with no limits on vendors. When it comes to setup and configuration, it is the user who is in control. Through either the use of a generic template, a project can be generated with basic information derived from the J-Link or through device-specific templates based on CPU Support Package.
Setting Up Generic Projects
Creating a new project is done by using a generic template. This generic template defines the project type: for example, a new C/C++ application or a new static library.
The Project Wizard has a selection of generic cores and devices, all supported by J-Link. These generic cores and devices can generate a project with minimal configuration of memory map and core selection. Thanks to this, a generated project can be built and run immediately.
Following this, a generic project can be extended to fit the desired hardware. For example, memory maps can be extended, the device SDK and system initialization added and then the interrupt handler defined.
Ultimately, all the building blocks for the target system are there. Indeed, a generic project is the perfect starting point.
CPU Support Packages
Using Embedded Studio CPU Support Packages, developers enjoy further extended project generation. They enable developers to create complete projects on their devices. Projects could, for example, include the complete layout of internal memory, system initialization and further modules for hardware access, device-specific start-up and all interrupt vectors.
CPU Support Packages are available for download & installation from Embedded Studio’s Package Manager. A summary of available packages can be found below or at studio.segger.com/packages/.
