Engineers designing Bluetooth LE SoC applications gain free access to commercial IDE

25-10-2017 | Nordic | Development Boards

Nordic Semiconductor has signed an agreement with Hilden to license use of Embedded Studio. The agreement allows developers to freely use Embedded Studio to develop Nordic nRF51 and nRF52 Series SoCs applications without any limitations. Embedded Studio is a complete all-in-one IDE for managing, building, testing, and deploying embedded applications. The IDE includes a powerful Project Manager; Source Code Editor; C/C++ GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) and CLANG/compilers; an Integrated Debugger with advanced debug information windows and direct J-Link integration; and version control features for automatic deployment of finished applications. "The powerful Nordic nRF microcontroller family is now complemented by the best cross-platform IDE Embedded Studio which will help software engineers to be even more efficient in their daily development processes. It is another key milestone of our exciting long-lasting cooperation with Nordic, having originally started with the J-Link OB support for the Nordic evaluation boards," says Ivo Geilenbruegge, CEO at SEGGER. "Adding Embedded Studio is an important step in making our solutions easier to use," says Pål Kastnes, a technical marketing manager with Nordic Semiconductor. "Embedded Studio includes all the features needed to develop applications on the nRF51 and nRF52 Series SoCs and features an intuitive user interface easing project starts.”
