SDK Features and Tools
A freely available SDK based on the GNU toolchain and other open components. This includes the essentials needed to develop software for MIPS processors.
|GNU Linux and ‘bare metal’ embedded GCC-based toolchains.|
|GDB debugger allows you to see what is going on inside another program.|
|Community support is offered through the MIPS Insider forum.|
|Prebuilt libraries for common architectures.|
|QEMU simulator. A free hypervisor performing hardware virtualization.|
SDK Installers v1.4
Codescape MIPS SDK Essentials can be downloaded either as a complete installer package or as binaries / source for each core component that makes up the SDK.
The complete installer package provides the core components detailed above and extra components providing enhanced functionality and features, distributed under a collection of license agreements.
|Reduced-size embedded libraries.|
