Embedded Studio gets 64bit Risc-V support

Covering CPUs including RV64I, RV64E and RV64GC with a floating-point unit, it comes integrated with emRun C/C++ runtime and emFloat floating-point libraries, the Segger Linker and Compiler. The GNU compiler and linker are also included.

“64bit embedded systems are gaining popularity with faster chips and bigger applications,” said compamy MD Ivo Geilenbruegge. “As a long-standing member of the Risc-V foundation, we are committed to support from small 32bit through high-end 64bit cores, from simple debug to flash programming and real-time trace.”

Embedded Studio’s built-in debugger natively supports J-Link and a simulator. GDB remote protocol is integrated for third-party debug probes. J-Link supports all standard 32 and 64bit RISC-V cores including non-intrusive background, system-bus memory access as well as RTT (real-time transfer).

The studio also includes direct download into flash memory using an open flash loader interface giving the Risc-V ecosystem access to Seggers catalogue of supported flash devices, and the opportunity to add flash programming for newly developed devices.
