DS-5 Development Studio

DS-5 gives you a core set of tools to make sure the most critical software on your system works efficiently and reliably.

DS-5 Development Studio is a suite of tools for embedded C/C++ software development on any Arm-based SoC, featuring editor, compilers, debugger and system profiler.

DS-5 Features

DS-5 Ultimate Edition includes:

  1. Arm compilation tools (Arm Compiler 5 and LLVM-based Arm Compiler 6, including safety-certified versions of both compilers).
  2. System autodetection to simplify JTAG debug and trace via CoreSight using the DSTREAM or DSTREAM-ST debug probes
  3. Streamline for a visual approach to system optimization and performance analysis.
  4. Armv7 and Armv8 Fixed Virtual Platform for software development without a hardware target.

System Bring-up in DS-5

Designed alongside Arm processors, CoreSight infrastructure and debug hardware, DS-5 helps to abstract the debug connection and comes with preconfigured debug connections to devices from over 40 semiconductor partners and OEMs.

For new devices, DS-5 autodetects the system-on-chip infrastructure, identifying the cores and trace macrocells to make debug connections simpler to set up.

System optimization can be achieved using Streamline Performance Analyzer, ensuring software makes the most of the efficiency of the underlying hardware.
