ARM DS-5 Community Edition Android dev kit released

ARM has just launched their own Android development toolkit, Development Studio 5 Community Edition. The reason for this release is the fact that most of the Android devices are powered by chips that are based on ARM architecture. Here is a list of features of this new toolkit
  • Customized Eclipse IDE, with ARM compiler, C/C++ editor and integrated productivity utilities.
  • DS-5 debugger
  • Performance analyzer for system-wide performance analysis for Linux and Android systems
  • Real time simulator (for Cortex A8 and A9)
DS-5 will be available in three different packages as explained below:

  • DS-5 Application Edition: Affordable professional solution for native language (e.g. C, C++) Linux and Android user space development. No debug unit required.
  • DS-5 Linux Edition: End-to-end software development tool suite for Linux-based systems. It includes bootloader and kernel level debug and trace capabilities when used in conjunction with DSTREAM.
  • DS-5 Professional Edition: Leading-edge software development tool-chain for bare-metal, RTOS, and Linux-based projects. It includes all features of the other editions plus the highly-optimizing ARM Compiler.
You can download the toolkit from here but before downloading, make sure that your host is compatible (details are provided below).
