Dear Community,

I built u-boot ( may be linux kernel as well?) for Vybrid with the help of Timesys with make file in u-boot directory.

Since I am a hardware engineer and non-linux firmware developer, I am asking may be a very simple question; For a linux project development,  do I still need ARM's expensive DS-5 tools or may we develop it with eclipse gcc tools and debug with gdb?

Thanks and best regards.

Dear Mehmet,

yes this should work imo. You have two options: Use directly the timestorm development environment (actually that's just a modified eclipse) or you get yourself a fresh eclipse CDT IDE and install the timestorm plugins afterwards. There are some howto documents available from Timesys that provide further informations!

Dear Johannes,

Thank you very much for your helps.

When I look at the Timesys web site, I see about 1795$ set/year. Is this timestorm's price or support/service price?

Thanks and best regards.

Mehmet.

I'm not using Linux but if I was, I would definitely try to build it with the Crossworks toolchain (which uses gcc).

That's what I wanted with MQX and starting from scratch I think it took me 1 or 2 weeks to create the Crossworks solution files to get what I needed with MQX up and running. I suppose it will take a bit more time for Linux but that should be fun.

I'm on a hobbyist license - no feature restriction between commercial and personal licenses - and if one day I decide to go commercial, I plan to simply purchase the Crossworks commercial license.

This is a support fee, which also includes the use of the timestorm toolchain.

We purchased a phytec development board which already included a timesys seat.

Dear Johannes,

We have Vybrid tower kit,

Do you know if tower kit also includes the timesys seat?

Best regards
