  • Support for the latest ARM Cortex-A series processors - Cortex-A5, Cortex-A8, and Cortex-A9
  • Based on GCC 4.4.1

Example Projects

To enable you to quickly get started with Linux development, DS-5 includes a full Linux example that can be run on an ARM Versatile board or the integrated RTSM model of a Cortex-A8 SoC.


The prebuilt GNU Compilation Tools have been extensively validated to ensure correct operation, including:

  • Completed the FSF GNU Compiler Collection regression testsuite
  • Validation by building the ARM Embeded Linux examples
