MSC Presents e²studio, The First Eclipse-based Development Environment For
Renesas’ RL78, RX And V850 Families of MCUs
Large selection of compilers and debuggers
Stutensee (Germany), February 22, 2012 — MSC presents an Eclipse-based
platform, the Eclipse Embedded studio (e²studio), from Renesas Electronics at
embedded world 2012, Nuremberg in Hall 2, Booth 2-219 from February 28 to March
1, 2012. The e²studio is a new Eclipse C/C++ Development Toolkit (CDT) based
development platform for Renesas’ RL78, RX and V850 families of microcontrollers
The e²studio is equipped with build phase plug-ins for compiler toolchains
from Renesas, IAR, Green Hills Software and the free-of-charge KPIT Cummins GNU
compilers. Alternatively, a complete open-source solution based on Eclipse can
be used. Besides plug-in support for the various compilers, the Eclipse
development environment also provides for each version a corresponding project
management, version control and other useful productivity tools.
Debug support includes Renesas’ E1 & E20 on-chip debuggers, Renesas’
IECUBE full specification emulators and Segger J-Link debugger. The implemented
GDB interface enables powerful debugging functions such as real time memory
update and trace.
e²studio is available either bundled with Renesas toolchains or as a
free-of-charge download from its website.
