Advanced development and debugging with the TrueSTUDIO IDE v5.2!

Embedded developers understand that using the right tool makes the work of developing and debugging software easier. Stop fighting with your IDE and let the powerful TrueSTUDIO development environment do the heavy lifting. For more information on advanced development and debugging of ARM-based embedded systems using Atollic TrueSTUDIO please Read this magazine article

The new v5.2 release of TrueSTUDIO provides deep and fully automatic integration with the Processor Expert software from Freescale, much improved target support as well as numerous other improvements.

Our new integration with Freescale Processor Expert software works like magic!

Processor Expert software, Freescale's software configuration tool, lets you design custom peripheral drivers for Kinetis MCUs with a few mouse clicks. You may know that Processor Expert already installs and runs inside Atollic TrueSTUDIO. The new TrueSTUDIO v5.2 adds even tighter integration and makes using Processor Expert more convenient than with any other IDE!

TrueSTUDIO now automatically detects if Processor Expert has generated a new project, or updated an existing project, and automatically sets up key parameters such as #include and source folder paths, target configuration and build options. With the new improved Processor Expert awareness in TrueSTUDIO, developers get a zero-click and zero-effort solution that "just works" without any manual steps to setup the IDE to work with the generated projects. This "no touch" level of automation is not available in any other IDE and TrueSTUDIO thus provides a superior experience for Kinetis developers.
