Press Release Summary:
- Provides every interrupt and task change and log messages, waypoints, and even API functions
- Easy to verify system behavior, track down inefficiencies, and find unintended interactions and resource conflicts
- Ideal for complex, RTOS-based embedded systems comprised of multiple threads and interrupts
Original Press Release:
SEGGER’s SystemView Now Available Under Friendly Licensing
Monheim, Germany – 27th November 2020 - SEGGER’s SystemView is now available under Friendly Licensing, making the important task of Embedded Systems verification accessible to everyone.
SystemView reveals the true runtime behavior of an application: Developers can make sure that a system performs as designed. It can show every interrupt and task change and can log messages, waypoints, and even API functions with a timestamp accurate to a single clock cycle. While being useful in simple super-loop applications, it is particularly effective when working with complex, RTOS-based Embedded Systems comprised of multiple threads and interrupts. It makes it easy to verify system behavior, track down inefficiencies and find unintended interactions and resource conflicts.
“System verification should not be an afterthought,” says Paul Curtis, Senior Developer at SEGGER. “I use SystemView in development all the time. Using SystemView during development ensures that my system is working the way I expect it to, every step of the way.”
“We use SystemView in the development of all of our embedded products to optimize and verify system behavior,” says Rolf Segger. “Given the complexity of today’s embedded products, I am convinced it is impossible to do this to the same degree without a tool like SystemView.” SystemView can use a simple memory buffer to record data on any Embedded System. When using Ethernet or SEGGER's J-Link Real Time Transfer (RTT) technology, SystemView can stream, analyze, and visualize an unlimited amount of data in real time. The recorded data can be stored for later analysis and documentation purposes.
Under SEGGER’s Friendly License, SystemView can be downloaded without registration and used free of charge for educational and non-commercial purposes, as well as evaluated without code size, feature, or time limit, on all platforms. This puts SystemView under the same friendly terms as SEGGER’s Ozone debugger and SEGGER’s Embedded Studio IDE.
All J-Link models are fully compatible with SystemView. This includes the low-cost educational versions J-Link EDU and J-Link EDU Mini and even J-Link OB (on-board many evaluation boards).
SEGGER Microcontroller has over twenty-five years of experience in Embedded Computer Systems, producing state-of-the-art software libraries, and offering a full set of hardware tools (for development and production) and software tools.
SEGGER provides an RTOS plus a complete spectrum of software libraries including communication, security, data compression and storage, user interface software and more. Using SEGGER software libraries gives developers a head start, benefiting from decades of experience in the industry.
SEGGER’s professional software libraries and tools for Embedded System development are designed for simple usage and are optimized for the requirements imposed by resource-constrained embedded systems. The company also supports the entire development process with affordable, high-quality, flexible, easy-to-use tools.
The company was founded by Rolf Segger in 1992, is privately held, and is growing steadily. SEGGER also has a U.S. office in the Boston area and branch operations in Silicon Valley and the UK, plus distributors on most continents, making SEGGER’s full product range available worldwide.
In short, SEGGER has a full set of tools for embedded systems, offers support through the entire development process, and has decades of experience as the Embedded Experts.
In addition, SEGGER software is not covered by an open-source or required-attribution license and can be integrated in any commercial or proprietary product, without the obligation to disclose the combined source.
Finally, SEGGER offers stability in an often volatile industry making SEGGER a very reliable partner for long-term relationships.
