STMicroelectronics offers a wide portfolio of microcontrollers (MCUs) for automotive applications, including the 32-bit SPC5 family, built on Power Architecture® technology.
SPC5Studio is a free of charge, RCP based integrated development environment provided to our customers to develop their embedded applications. Mainly based on CDT, SPC5Studio uses a large variety of other Eclipse projects (RCPTT, Eclipse Modeling Project, Eclipse Market place client, JBoss Freemarker, Eclipse Web tools Platform, ...)
In this talk I will present:
• how we extracted I/O pin mapping definition from MCU designers' settings database,
• how we ensure consistency checking between various parts of MCU configuration,
• how the configuration is used to generate user CDT application project, with code templates,
• the choices that we made using Eclipse ecosystem and marketplace in order to develop, test, validate and deploy the tool itself, but also its embedded drivers and applications.
