Performance

  • Short startup and load time
  • Parallel build process
  • Fast debugging with J-Link

Debug your code while others are still waiting

Embedded Studio is designed for development efficiency. Fast startup, short project load time and parallel build minimize the time you spend waiting. Using J-Link debug technology, you can download, debug and analyze your application fast and effortlessly.

In development, the performance of the development environment highly affects your daily workflow. Embedded Studio helps you to maximize your productivity and minimizes the time you spend waiting by providing a high-performance environment.

Startup and load

Embedded Studio starts up and loads your project within two seconds. When you open Embedded Studio, it is exactly as you left it the last time. The most recent project is loaded, and all windows and source files are restored.

Switching between projects is equally fast. Embedded Studio manages your recent projects in a history for easy access.
