The newest version of Coldfire now supports Freescale Semiconductor's MCF5207 and MCF5208 microprocessors, including a utility that lets programmers debug firmware in minutes, integrating Freescale's dBug ROM monitor software into the Crossware development environment. To meet requirements for modern embedded systems, the software now supports 64-bit integer arithmetic in its ColdFire C compiler. The software makes using the dBug ROM monitor as a starting point for the programmer's own application easy, with a utility that can import the whole dBug source tree and build settings into the Crossware graphical development environment. After unzipping the Freescale files, finishing a build and download cycle takes minutes, and the firmware can be downloaded quickly into Flash with Crossware's FireFly USB background debug mode interface. The integrated, user-friendly environment lets developers create, build and debug their ColdFire programs with or without hardware.
