Software development Tools

XMOS provides a tool chain based on a standard software flow that supports C and C++. As well as compilers, an assembler, a linker and a mapper, the tools include simulator, timing tool, software scope for real-time instrumentation and utilities for deploying compiled binary images onto your board or programming external flash memory. The tools can be driven from the xTIMEcomposer Studio (based on the standard Eclipse IDE) or the command line.

xTIMEcomposer is available for download free of charge from the XMOs Download Center (http://www.xmos.com/resources/downloads).

xSOFTip Peripherals

To make building your system easy, XMOS provides a large and growing selection of xSOFTip blocks to run on xCORE devices. The xSOFTip range includes interfaces such as USB, Ethernet and serial ports as well as signal processing and protocol functions. Each block is delivered complete with documentation covering the usage, API and an application example.

XMOS provides the xSOFTip Explorer to find out more about each component and try different configurations. It is available for download free of charge from the Resource Center (http://www.xmos.com/resources/downloads).

xTIMEcomposer Studio lets you import xSOFTip blocks directly into your projects.


Full documentation, FAQs, xSOFTip blocks, and downloadable design examples are available on the XMOS Resources Center (http://www.xmos.com/resources). There, you will also find links for submitting support tickets and our community website. The community website hosts hundreds of fellow XMOS developers discussing the technology in the forums.
