Ecoscentric has updated the Ecospro Developer’s Kit with the 3.1 release, which focuses on upgrading and enhancing the cross-development environment, tools and supported hosts to improve the compilation and development-tool infrastructure, polishing the environment that engineers use to build Ecospro-based applications, according to the company.

Ecospro’s Eclipse-based IDE has been updated to the Helios SR1 release, which incorporates enhancements such as the new DSF-GDB debug framework along with multi-threaded debugging improvements, enhanced editor with error-message hot-linking direct to relevant source line and GUI enhancements.

The Ecospro Eclipse extensions have been revised to simplify and streamline Ecos application development.

Application projects within Eclipse can now be associated with an Ecos Configuration Project, allowing Ecos to be built directly within Eclipse and enabling the management of dependencies between RTOS configurations and application projects.
