ARM Development Studio 5 (DS 5) Demos At Design West

ARM has shot a few video demos of their ARM Development Studio 5 (DS 5), a software development tool suite for ARM platforms, at Design West 2012.

The first video shows DS 5 running on the Xilinx Zynq-7000 platform (dual cortex A9 + FPGA), and we can see the memory map, registers, call graphs and stack usage. We can also see real-time processor switching and the function that takes the most CPU resources (profiling).

The second videos showcases ARM DS-5 Streamline, a performance analyzer, which helps determine how well programs are running on a Linux or Android platform, on an Samsung Exynos 4210 platform (Origen board?). This tool also to profile both the dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 and ARM Mali-400 MP GPU in the platform.

We are shown three types of reports:

  • CPU/GPU Loading
  • Threads usage
  • Power Usage per application

The third and last video shows ARM DS 5 on Freescale i.MX6 running Linux SMP, where the software allow developers to monitor threads per CPU, the call stack, trace history and register values.

ARM DS 5 development suite is not free, but if you are an individual developer or a small company with less than 10 developers, you can always use ARM DS 5 Community Edition which is provided free of charge.
