iSYSTEM Supports Intel XScale Embedded Processors

11/4/2002 - Support for the XScaleTM family of microcontrollers from Intel is announced by iSYSTEM. The line is supported by a new iCARD compatible with the company's iC3000 and iC4000 ActiveEmulators. The new iCARD interfaces to the XScale target via the industry-standard JTAG connector and supports a range of voltage from 5V down to 1.8V. The XScale devices from Intel feature the ARM embedded processor.

This new iCARD supports the XScaleTM at maximum frequency and debugging is non-intrusive. On-chip MMU and cache are supported as well as on-chip trace. Internal and external FLASH may be programmed via the JTAG interface. Additionally, fast monitor FLASH programming is available for internal and external FLASH.

The iCARD can be plugged into compact iC3000 Active Emulator and powerful iC4000 Emulator. Standard RS232, LPT (iC4000 only), USB and Ethernet interfaces are available. The new iSYSTEM iCARD supports the XScale processors via the JTAG interface. The iCARD plugs into either the iC3000 or iC4000 ActiveEmulators.

All of the tools mentioned here are driven with easy-to-use winIDEA. It features a project manager, multi-file C source editor, build manager where any third party compiler can be integrated and high-level C/C++ source debugger. The winIDEA interface offers workgroup support for projects where several developers share the same project code and incorporates a C-like script language to facilitate automation and testing. The program also supports popular version control systems and RTOS debugging support. A true 32-bit application, winIDEA runs on Windows XP, NT 4.0, Windows 2000 and Windows 95/98 platforms.
