Using open source tools to debug Linux applications can be a challenging experience, and still developers have to work with them every day. Highly-skilled developers using open source tools experience costly delays with command-line driven debuggers. For developers who are new to debugging, there is always a steep learning curve. Effective debugging can help developers save time and money, but until now, there have been few affordable alternatives.

ARM introduces the Keil Development Studio 5 (DS-5), a new family of tools aimed specifically at Linux Application Development. The DS-5 is made up of a pre-packaged GNU Compiler, a Linux distribution and examples and the new Eclipse-based DS-5 Debugger. DS-5 is a high-performance, economically priced, cross-platform debugger for open source Linux applications. The DS-5 is GUI driven rather than command-line driven; making it easier for developers to access the internals of the chip for debug purposes.

Attend this webinar to learn about using the Keil DS-5 and how it

– Improves synchronized source and disassembly use
– Increases visibility of the CPU register content
– Allows setup of complex break points

In addition
– Find out how easy it is to download applications and libraries to a target file system
– Quickly get up to speed with two included example projects
