SEGGER Embedded Studio supports RISC-V architecture

RISC-V edition of Embedded Studio IDE released.


SEGGER Microcontroller has announced the RISC-V edition of its market leading multi-platform Embedded Studio integrated development environment (IDE). SEGGER Embedded Studio is a professional IDE that supports the open source RISC-V CPU architecture.

Embedded Studio for RISC-V comes with the same features and benefits of Embedded Studio for Arm and Cortex-M and allows users to transition between both architectures. Embedded Studio for RISC-V makes it easy to evaluate RISC-V.

J-Link combined with Embedded Studio provides a debug experience for RISC-V and ARM using capabilities fine-tuned for software development and production: Unlimited breakpoints in flash memory eliminating hardware breakpoint limitations, and the ability to write custom loaders using J-Link's Open Flash Loader to support any type of flash memory storage. Embedded Studio features multiple means of application analysis, such as memory use and stack analysis.

One way to experience RISC-V and Embedded Studio is with the Digilent Artix-A7 ARTY development board, which has the SiFive E31 Core IP deployed, including integrated flash programming, debugging, and flash breakpoints.

With straightforward licensing, free for educational and non-commercial use, Embedded Studio is ideally suited to university courses and for professional development in equal measure.
