Wind River Workbench 3.2, On-Chip Debugging 3.2, and Compiler 5.8

Wind River introduced Wind River Workbench 3.2, Wind River On-Chip Debugging 3.2, and Wind River Compiler 5.8. The latest suite of development tools reduce device software development cycles, eliminate project delays, and accelerate time-to-market. The latest tools are ideal for automotive, industrial, and networking applications. Wind River Workbench 3.2, Wind River On-Chip Debugging 3.2, and Wind River Compiler 5.8 are available now.

Wind River Workbench 3.2
Wind River Workbench is a fully integrated end-to-end, open standards-based collection of tools for device software design, development, debugging, testing and management for VxWorks and Wind River Linux. Workbench 3.2 supports the latest versions of VxWorks and Wind River Linux and provides the foundation for Wind River Workbench On-Chip Debugging 3.2. Workbench 3.2 is based on the open industry standard Eclipse 3.5 IDE which enables integration with a multitude of third-party and in-house developed tools.

Wind River On-Chip Debugging 3.2
Wind River On-Chip Debugging is an extensible JTAG solution that simplifies the entire embedded development lifecycle and optimizes developer efficiency. Wind River On-Chip Debugging consists of the Workbench On-Chip Debugging IDE, which powers a choice of two hardware-based debug units: the high-performance, multicore-capable Wind River ICE 2 and the entry-level USB-based Wind River Probe. Wind River On-Chip Debugging supports a wide range of target operating systems on the latest 32-bit and 64-bit processors based on ARM, Coldfire, Intel, MIPS, and PowerPC architectures.

Workbench On-Chip Debugging 3.2 is optimized for development of multicore, multi-OS, and virtualized environments, and debugging the most complex system-level issues such as deadlocks, memory corruption, and core synchronization. Enhancements include the ability to visualize and perform run-control operations on multiple target systems, CPU cores, and kernel objects such as threads, tasks, and processes within a single windowed environment. Wind River ICE 2 and Wind River Probe utilize Wind River’s JTAG acceleration technology, which optimizes use of the JTAG interface bandwidth resulting in a highly responsive and efficient debug experience.

Wind River Compiler 5.8
Wind River Compiler, formerly known as the Diab compiler, is an OS agnostic tool suite, including a C/C++ compiler, an assembler, a linker, ANSI C and C++ libraries, and an instruction set simulator. It is the most reliable and mature compiler in the industry, with a proven track record for generating compact and highly optimized code for thousands of designs and millions of devices using a wide variety of processor architectures. Diab compiler technology is widely used in the most demanding and mission-critical applications, such as automotive under-the-hood, industrial and aerospace and defense systems.

Wind River Workbench On-Chip Debugging 3.2 and Wind River Compiler 5.8 add support for a multitude of new processors, including the Power Architecture e200 core-based automotive controllers from STMicroelectronics and Freescale, select Intel Xeon and Intel Core 2 Duo processors targeted for a wide range of embedded applications, and Freescale QorIQ P4080 Communications Processors targeted for high-performance networking applications. Additional new processor support includes Cavium Networks ECONA processors, Freescale i.MX51 and i.MX25 multimedia application processors, and RMI Alchemy Au1300 media processors.
