ARM DS-5 Application Edition Released for Sale

14 July 2010

CAMBRIDGE, UK – July 14, 2010 – ARM today announced the commercial availability of ARM® Development Studio 5 (DS-5™) Application Edition. Following a successful four-month trial period the software development suite, created to simplify the development of Linux and Android native applications for ARM processor-based systems, is available for use in commercial software development.  

DS-5 Application Edition features an Eclipse-based project manager with support for multiple workspaces and projects, along with powerful C/C++ Compiler and assembly source code editing functions. DS-5 includes a fully featured debugger with detailed graphical views and processor control mechanisms, which can be used to debug both Linux applications, and Android’s native counterparts.  

To increase the efficiency of the software development cycle, DS-5 Application Edition includes an ARM Cortex™-A8 processor-based SoC fast simulation model and a pre-configured ARM Linux distribution for supported targets. These features enable developers to start testing and debugging before hardware has been made available.  

The Application Edition is the first of three planned DS-5 editions. Future editions will include kernel, driver, debug and trace, performance profiler, additional fast models, and the highly optimizing ARM Compiler.  

The DS-5 Application Edition is compatible with Windows and Linux hosts, and is available now from ARM and your local ARM distributor.  A full trial version of DS-5 Application Edition is available for download at https://silver.arm.com
