SEGGER Embedded Studio Version 7 includes source code of libraries

Monheim am Rhein, Germany – November 24th, 2022

SEGGER’s latest version of Embedded Studio comes with the source code and on-demand build of the included C runtime library, emRun, and C++ library, emRun++.

A toolchain usually includes pre-compiled libraries for all supported architectures and configurations, with the installation taking up significant space on a developer’s machine. Embedded Studio automatically builds (and installs) the libraries the first time they are used.

In addition to cutting down the disk space required this also reduces the download-size of the setup and the time for the installation to less than 50% compared to previous releases. A typical download size ranges from 400MB to less than 250MB, depending on the platform.

Embedded Studio can easily be downloaded and installed on Linux, macOS and Windows. For evaluation and non-commercial use, no license key is required: “It simply works” out of the box.

With the new version, Embedded Studio adds full transparency to all parts of a project with no unknowns hidden in a library. Developers can see the full code for review, verification and help with certification.

“Embedded Studio automatically fine-tunes emRun and emRun++ for size-optimized code or speed-optimized code or a balance of both, to fit the needs of most developers,” says Rolf Segger, founder of SEGGER. “With access to the source code, developers can now also configure the libraries to suit a specific hardware and project. On flexible architectures, such as RISC-V with various extensions, firmware can benefit immensely from a targeted runtime library.”

SEGGER’s market-leading emRun is a complete C runtime library, which includes SEGGER’s emFloat floating point library. It is specifically designed and optimized for embedded systems, with hand-coded assembly optimizations for Arm and RISC-V cores. emRun++ provides C++ support for the C++17 standard.

The new version of Embedded Studio is fully compatible with previous versions.
The source code of the libraries is provided without the comments. A fully-commented version, with complete documentation, is available for licensing to individual companies. SEGGER also offers silicon vendors the option to license emRun for redistribution to their own customers under their own terms.

About Embedded Studio
Embedded Studio is a multi-platform IDE (Integrated Development Environment) from SEGGER Microcontroller. Characterized by its flexibility of use, it includes all the tools & features a developer needs for professional embedded C and C++ programming & development.

It comes with a powerful project manager and source code editor. The editor is quick to start up and the build process is blazingly fast, saving precious working hours. It also includes SEGGER’s highly optimized emRun runtime and emFloat floating point libraries, as well as SEGGER’s smart Linker, all of which have been developed from the ground up specifically for resource-constrained embedded systems.

In combination with the Clang-based, highly optimizing C/C++ SEGGER Compiler, extremely small yet efficient programs can be generated, putting every byte to work.

The built-in debugger leaves nothing to be desired. Fully integrated with J-Link, it delivers great performance and stability.

Embedded Studio is available for unlimited evaluation, and for educational and non-commercial purposes, free of charge, with no restrictions in terms of code size, features or duration of use.

It is used extensively at SEGGER internally and is continuously updated and enhanced.

Series Five Product Introduction

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Amphenol Aerospace

Size and weight are critical design considerations when it comes to military and aerospace applications. One way to minimize weight and size in these kinds of designs is to take a closer look at your choice of connectors. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Anthony Annunziata from Amphenol Aerospace about the series five next generation connectors from Amphenol Aerospace. They investigate the size and weight advantages that these connectors bring to military and aerospace applications and how you can get started using the series five in your next design.
