As you might be well aware now, Power Architecture technology spans applications from satellites to automotive control to servers, for which it has become the preferred platform for many mission critical applications and markets. Power Architecture technology is present in many single–, dual– and multicore Freescale processors, and the great news is CodeWarrior 10.3 (latest release) is now supporting it, enabling all those great projects out there with the most advanced features in the following categories: Licensing Build Tools IDE Power Architecture Debugger Trace, Profiling and Performance Analysis And many other ones that you will learn of in the Release Note There are also a few new System Requirements, so check them up before installing! WINDOWS LINUX Windows 7 SP1 32/64-bit Windows Vista SP2 32/64-bit Windows XP SP3 32/64-bit Red Hat® Enterprise Linux 5.4, 32/64-bit Ubuntu 8.0.4 32-bit Ubuntu 9.10 32-bit Ubuntu 10.4 64-bit Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit and 64-bit SuSE 11 32-bit Fedora 18 64-bit For other OS requirements, check further references in Release Note If you are now ready to download CW10.3 for Power Architecture, click here !
Mentor Graphics makes available to the public (licensed, but free of charge) their Embedded Performance Library (MEPL) that adds Altivec support to projects built using e6500 gcc tools (version 4.7.2 or later.) This file explains how to add that support to a CodeWarrior PA10.3.3 project for T4240QDS.
For use of CWTAP/USBTAP with CodeWarrior to connect target board, connection error is the type of issues that happened commonly. How to deal with it? Attached are tips for some general things to check, here assuming target device is Power Architecture, and the tap is USBTAP or CWTAP/USB. For other targets it may be similar in some tips. There might be variable reasons for the connection error, if the common tips in the attachment could not solve the problem, please enable CCS log and post on Freescale community or contact Freescale technical support for help. See attachment for steps to enable logging. Also there are two useful documents in C:\Freescale\CW_PA_v10.4.0\PA\Help\PDF: CodeWarrior TAP User Guide.pdf and USB TAP User Guide.pdf. Welcome any correction and supplement for the tips. Make CodeWarrior connection easier!
The advantages we can get out of QorIQ processing platforms are merged into so many applications! Just to mention some, we can find it within networks, mobile wireless infrastructure, automated functions, medical use, and many many more! This way you can get high-performance communications, base stations and computing systems to market easier with its advanced tools, multiple cores, accelerators, security and more. Some service packs have been released to empower your design in this handful technology. The forth of them is being presented here with the Power Architecture Processors v10.1.2 Service. This time, the improvements have been applied in the following devices: P4040 DS Bare-metal support U-boot debug P4080 DS Bare-metal support U-boot debug P3041 DS Hydra Linux Kernel and Application Debug P3041 DS SuperHydra Linux Kernel and Application Debug There are many more new features added and improved for Power Architecture Processors v10.1.2 Get to meet them in the Release Note! And download now the Service Pack 4 for Linux ! You rather Windows version ?
