New Functionality in Code Red IDE Version 5

The Red Suite 5 family of products is a significant upgrade over previous releases. The new functionality contained in Red Suite / LPCXpresso 5 includes:

  • The IDE is now based on the Eclipse “Juno” release and CDT 8.1.

  • The compilation tools are now based on GCC 4.6.2.

  • Red Trace enhancements

    • Support for Instruction Trace for Cortex-M3/M4 based MCUs implementing an Embedded Trace Buffer (ETB).
      • This functionality is available in LPCXpresso IDE as well as Red Suite.
    • Support for Instruction trace for Cortex-M0+ based systems implementing a Micro Trace Buffer (MTB).
  • Additional MCU Support

    • Support for Freescale Kinetis MCUs extended to include Kinetis L parts (Cortex-M0+).
    • Support for STMicroelectronics MCUs extended to include STM32F0 parts (Cortex-M0).
  • Updated Redlib C library

    • Cortex-M4 specific library variants now provided, rather than just relying on Cortex-M3 variant. Should lead to some performance improvements, particularly when (single precision) floating point is being used.
    • printf family functions no longer pull in ctype constant data, saving ~400 bytes of flash space for applications using any of these functions.

  • Red State enhanced

    • Support for multiple state machines in a single project
  • Additional Debug probe support

    • Support for direct debug connection to Code Red's RDB4078 board.

    • Support for direct debug connection to Freescale FRDM board.
