Blunk Announces phyCORE-MPC5200B $5K RTOS Bundle

San Jose, Calif., January 9, 2013 - Blunk Microsystems announces turnkey support for the phyCORE®-MPC5200B-I/O Rapid Development Kit from Phytec. The $5K RTOS Bundle includes a board support package, Blunk’s PowerPC embedded operating system, and the TargetTools™ Integrated Development Environment.

Components in the $5K RTOS Bundle include:

TargetMon allows single stepping and breakpoints in both tasks and interrupt service routines. Its fast download speed makes it the preferred connection for application development. JTAG debug connections are supported for initial board bring-up, and a configuration file is provided for the Abatron JTAG interfaces.

The TargetTools IDE makes it easy to navigate source code, control build settings, and keep projects up to date. It includes a source code debugger and advanced kernel-awareness for both JTAG and TargetMon connections with i) status display of tasks, semaphores, queues, etc., ii) “software logic analyzer” view of context switches, interrupts and service calls, and iii) source display scoping, to view the current execution point of each task.

The $5K Bundle includes both the Windows GUI-based development tools and the embedded source code components. It provides everything needed for embedded software development using the phyCORE-MPC5200B-I/O. The software is licensed as a per-seat annual subscription with a total cost of $5K per seat. Derived executable code can be released without restriction. Redistribution of source code is prohibited.
