MEDIA ALERT: ARM announces the new Keil MDK-Fujitsu Microcontroller Development Kit for Fujitsu FM3 Family

25 September 2012

What:
ARM® today announced the availability of the Keil™ MDK-Fujitsu Microcontroller Development Kit, a complete C/C++ software development environment for the ARM® Cortex™-M3 processor-based microcontroller Fujitsu FM3 microcontroller family. The new MDK-Fujitsu has been developed with Fujitsu Semiconductor, a long standing partner for ARM, and will help customers to accelerate development efficiency and decrease time-to-market enabling further expansion within Asia.

MDK-Fujitsu is supplied as a cost-effective 12-month term license, is tailored for the Fujitsu FM3 family, and includes ARM C/C++ cCompiler, µVision4™ IDE, CMSIS, DSP-Library, Debugger, Simulator, and RTX RTOS. The MDK-Fujitsu Debugger connects to a wide-range of adapters including Segger JLINK, the Keil ULINK2™, ULINK-ME™, and ULINKpro™ debug adapters. Software engineers will be able to reduce development time by analyzing software performance of a FM3 family MCU such as real-time program behavior and code coverage, with ULINKpro ETM Streaming trace. MDK-Fujitsu supports all FM3 family MCUs with set-up files, Flash programming algorithm, and device-specific debug views.

Why:
“Fujitsu Semiconductor supports full availability of the development environment for FM3 family. ARM now provides a tailored version of the popular MDK-ARM Microcontroller Development Kit with Keil MDK-Fujitsu, which contains the highly efficient ARM C/C++ compiler and the genuine Keil µVision IDE/Debugger,” said Mr.Toshiyuki Teramoto, Vice President, MCU Business Div, MCU Solutions Business Unit, Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited. “Now customers are able to develop applications for the Fujitsu FM3 family microcontrollers more easily and efficiently.”

“With the new MDK-Fujitsu we offer the industry-leading development tool kit tailored for the growing Fujitsu FM3 MCU family,” said Reinhard Keil, director of MCU tools, ARM. “MDK-Fujitsu connects via the ULINK debug adapter family to all Fujitsu FM3 family evaluation kits and provides debugging awareness for FM3 family peripherals. The Fujitsu FM3 family offers peripherals for Ethernet, USB, CAN, and LCD. MDK-Fujitsu may be upgraded to MDK-Professional that includes ready-to-use middleware for these communication peripherals.”
