CooCox Yesterday I posted some links to the CooCox system. If you check their forums someone has done some work so that this kit can be used with their system and the "Standard" EABI ARM cross compiler. The older Discovery Kit now works directly.
I have successfully used IAR, CooCox and EABI compiler under cygwin and MinGw -- lots of choice.
So if you do not have the bankroll for IAR -- which is worth every dime -- try the other routes.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
