Ashling and Imagination announce Ashling's RiscFree™ C/C++ SDK support for RISC-V-based Catapult family

Mar. 15, 2023 – 

Embedded World, Marh 15 2023, Nuremberg, Germany -- Ashling and Imagination Technologies announced today that Ashling’s RiscFree SDK will provide software development support for Imagination’s Catapult RISC-V-based IP cores.

RTXM-2200 is the first commercial, licensable CPU IP from the RISC-V Catapult family featuring a real-time, highly scalable, 32-bit embedded design drawing on Imagination’s decades of experience in CPU design.

“In partnering with Ashling we are enabling support for the RiscFree SDK on our RISC-V processor cores. This means our customers will benefit from a wider range of development tools, supporting their RISC-V-based design journey and enabling them to significantly speed up their time to market. We are excited to grow and consolidate the Catapult RISC-V ecosystem with Ashling through both market-leading hardware as well as comprehensive software support for future technologies in this space,” said Peter Lewin, Director of CPU ecosystems, Imagination.

RiscFree is Ashling’s SDK including an IDE, compiler and debugger and provides software development and debug support for Catapult. Since its introduction, Ashling’s RiscFree SDK has been steadily building market share within the embedded tools market and is particularly strong in the RISC-V market where its ease-of-use, broad functionality, plug-in architecture and real-time trace support have made it the go-to choice for 32-bit and 64-bit RISC core software development.

“We are pleased to announce our support for Imagination’s recently released Catapult RISC-V CPU cores and that our RiscFree is now part of Imagination’s tools eco-system for development and debug. We look forward to further co-operation, particularly between our engineering teams to ensure that RiscFree can leverage all the additional debugging and analysis capabilities earmarked for future Catapult devices,” said Hugh O’Keeffe, CEO of Ashling.

Ashling RiscFree SDK support for Imagination’s Catapult includes:
