With its open, extensible architecture, Eclipse has become the de facto platform for both open-source and commercial embedded development tools. As a result, embedded developers can now access an unprecedented range and variety of tools, all within a single IDE. The question is, which tools and capabilities do you really need for your embedded project? The answer depends on multiple factors, including budget, project phase, and your organization’s development processes. This class will explore how to evaluate the many options available and how to build a suite appropriate for both your organization and your project. Besides conventional coding and debugging tools, we’ll consider new technologies, such as modeling and static analysis, that Eclipse is making available to embedded developers.
