ARM DS-5 is a complete set of C/C++ programming tools that make writing programs for SoCs or programmable chips much easier. SoC or System on the chip is actually a complete computer on a small scale. This program is provided for a special category of SoCs based on ARM processors, which are widely used in these types of systems due to their low energy consumption.
In this system, various computer components, such as the processor, RAM, inputs, and outputs, are placed on a chip that developers connect to different chip bases through the product datasheet and program it. Usually, SoCs are used in the design of embedded systems that require energy saving and high processing speed. This program was replaced by ARM Development Studio.
Even though you can write the required codes for this program with Notepad, this editor will not be effective in complex programs. Using DS-5, you can code, debug, debug and trace the program much more easily and intelligently to get to the root of the problem. In this editor, there is an advanced syntax highlight that makes coding very easy.
It is easier to use external libraries in this environment. Transferring the program to the chip is done with one click. ARM DS-5 graphical environment allows programmers to have better control over the project. All the files related to the project are collected in one integrated place, which is only one click away from us. Each file is opened in a separate tab, and in this way, it will be easier to open and review several documents simultaneously and side by side.
ARM Development Studio
ARM Development Studio is an alternative version of ARM DS-5, which combines the features of this software and Keil MDK, providing you with the best facilities and capabilities of both fields. Multi-core scalability and improved productivity with the help of CMSIS are among the features of this software.
To install and use Arm Development Studio, your workstation must have at least:
- A dual-core x86 2GHz processor (or equivalent).
- 2GB of RAM.
- Approximately 3GB of hard disk space.
To improve performance, Arm recommends a minimum of 4GB of RAM when you:
- Debug large images.
- Use models with large simulated memory maps.
- Use Arm Streamline.
Host platform requirements
Arm Development Studio supports the following host platforms:
- Windows 10
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Workstation
- Ubuntu Desktop Edition 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu Desktop Edition 18.04 LTS
Arm Development Studio only supports 64-bit host platforms.
