The Newest Incarnation of uC/Probe Makes Seeing inside Embedded Systems Easier Than Ever
SAN JOSE, Calif.-- Micrium, the premier supplier of high-quality software components for embedded systems, today announced a completely redesigned version of the innovative visualization tool uC/Probe. The new version of the tool features a highly intuitive drag-and-drop interface aimed at helping developers effortlessly create graphical representations of running embedded systems.
"All too often, the most powerful tools for embedded systems development are those that are also the most difficult to use," said Jean Labrosse, founder and CEO of Micrium. "The new version of uC/Probe, however, makes vast quantities of helpful information available through just a few mouse clicks."
The unique concept behind uC/Probe has been garnering attention since the tool was first released over five years ago. uC/Probe gives embedded software developers read and write access to their code's variables, and it provides this service without halting the processor on which the code runs.
Although uC/Probe is sometimes compared to conventional debuggers, its graphical capabilities make it substantially more versatile than such tools. Developers can use uC/Probe in the early stages of a project for proof-of-concept work, and can turn to the tool again after product deployment to troubleshoot devices in the field.
The newest version of uC/Probe, like its predecessors, is a Windows-based tool. It can be used to visualize nearly any embedded system that supports JTAG, TCP/IP, or RS-232 communication.
Micrium is set to release the new version of uC/Probe on June 8, 2012. Following the release, developers will be able to download a free, evaluation version of the tool from the Micrium Web site.
