Norwood, MA (07/05/2006) -
Analog Devices, Inc. (NYSE: ADI)
today announced the availability of VisualDSP++® Release 4.5, the newest release of its integrated software development and debugging environment (IDDE) for Blackfin®, SHARC®, and TigerSHARC® Processors.
Easy to use and easy to install, VisualDSP++ consists of an integrated development environment, debugger, C/C++ compiler, assembler, linker, and simulator. New features in Release 4.5 include a scriptable flash memory programmer and caching project dependencies to improve build times. Another enhancement is that hardware breakpoints can be easily set and cleared from the main user interface window, which offers new levels of usability when debugging, for example, code executing from flash memory. VisualDSP++ Release 4.5 also supports the new Blackfin Multimedia Starter Kit announced earlier.
A free 90-day test drive download or CD of VisualDSP++ Release 4.5 are available. In addition, the Release 4.5 upgrade is downloadable from the ADI web site and is free of charge to all registered users of VisualDSP++; licensed users of the EZ-KIT Lite® evaluation platform may also update their evaluation version of VisualDSP++ software at no charge. Upgrades are available.
