The following KB describes how using Intel® System Studio relates to traditional cross-development for Intelligent Systems in the market today.
The Intel® System Studio is a new integrated software development tools solution for Intel® architecture based Intelligent Systems and Embedded Devices.
The complexity of System-On-Chip based designs used in Intelligent Systems is growing fast with platforms comprised of multiple different cores with the software stack interacting across these cores. This translates directly to a more complex software stack, that has its own challenges for guaranteeing consistent reliability throughout the devices life cycle. Thus it is ever more important to have system and application debug solutions that provide deep hardware and platform insight as well as visibility of the entire system software stack.
With the Intel® C++ Software Development Tool Suite for Linux* OS Supporting Mobile Internet Devices (http://www.intel.com/software/products/mid) comes a capability built into the Intel® C++ JTAG Debugger that allows to download and burn images into target-device FLASH memory (BIOS / Firmware) without removing the chip. This is available through a debugger plugin shared object that allows you to burn images into the target-device FLASH memory from within the debugger GUI.
