RX software ecosystem expanded

SEGGER’s SystemView software has been added to the ecosystem supporting Renesas’ RX Family of 32bit MCUs.

“With the addition of SystemView to the RX ecosystem, our customers will have access to a higher degree of development support”, said Mohammed Dogar, senior manager for MCU/MPU solution marketing, industrial and communications business group, at Renesas Electronics Europe. “SystemView demonstrates the power and efficiency of modern debug tools, where the latest technology ensures an efficient embedded design process. With SEGGER’s support, we can now offer an expanded ecosystem to our customers using the powerful and scalable RX microcontroller family.”

SystemView is said to give complete insight into the behaviour of a program, with minimal side effects on the embedded system being observed. It offers cycle accurate tracing of interrupts and task start/stop, plus task activation and API calls when an RTOS is used. It visualizes and analyses CPU load by task, interrupts and software timers.

SystemView will support streaming over J-Link, as well as real time analysis and visualisation, in relation to any Renesas RX-based embedded design. SystemView makes use of SEGGER’s Real-Time Transfer technology, which enables data to be transferred at up to 2Mbyte/s, requiring no hardware other than a J-Link and the standard debug interface.
