XMOS has also announced the availability of its xCORE-XA development module, which features real-time hardware debug facilities—the development module comes equipped with the Segger JTAG debugger for the ARM core and the xTAG-3 with power monitoring debugger for the xCOREs.


All of the I/Os are made available via 0.1-inch pitch headers, allowing designers to connect via ribbon cables or to create their own custom application-specific baseboards. XMOS will also be providing a range of application specific daughter- and mother-cards, the first of which—for Industrial Ethernet and Fieldbus systems—has been launched.

As part of this release, the xTIMEcomposer Studio suite of tools for integrated code development has been enhanced to provide a fully integrated environment for both ARM and XCORE processor cores.


As illustrated in the image above, this integrated development environment includes XMOS xCORE and ARM Cortex-M3 target makefile projects, along with xCORE and ARM C code editing. Similarly, the environment supports parallel debugging of the ARM and xCORE processors, including single-stepping and source code highlighting of the statements being executed on the various cores.
