Today Green Hills Software announced that it had ported velOSity to the Renesas SH726x. The port includes an impressive array of software, including:
A royalty-free RTOS
Middleware for TCP/IP stacks, file systems, graphics, and more
The MULTI IDE with optimized C/C++ compilers
Static code analysis tools
Advanced trace analysis tools
This port makes the SH726x a much stronger contender for media-processing applications. Although the SH726x is an MCU, its DSP performance is quite good. However, Rensas' tools were designed with MCU programmers in mind. As a result, the tools are missing several features critical to DSP software development, such as robust trace analysis. The velOSity port does a great job of addressing these shortcomings.
