The AVR Eclipse Plugin is a multi-platform plugin for the powerful Eclipse IDE, and supports the development of applications for the Atmel AVR series of 8-bit embedded microcontrollers. It integrates the avr-gcc toolchain in Eclipse, and has many features to make life for the AVR developer easier.
CUT is a unit-testing framework for C, C++, and Objective-C. Unlike other unit testing tools, CUT doesn't strive to be an SUnit clone. It automates a lot of the drudge work often encountered when using other unit testing packages for the C family of programming languages. CUT may also be used to unit-test assembly language software in some circumstances.
GnuPoc enables the development EPOC applications using alternative operating systems like Linux and other Unices. The following SDKs have been ported to GnuPoc: ER5 (Psion Series5, Psion netbook, etc.), Quartz 6.0, Crystal 6.0 (Nokia 9210, 9290), and Nokia Series 60 (Nokia 7650, etc.).
KMD is a multi-processor debugger. It can debug with hardware boards over serial ports or with software emulators (ARM and MIPS emulators are included in the project). Using the pipe option you can debug over the network or any other communication medium. It can load many executable formats such as ELF, and display and follow the original source even from multiple source file programs. There is support for breakpoints and watchpoints which can trap on specific data (such as loading or executing specific instructions). Support for other features such as FPGA's is also available, allowing loading or any control required to drive a specific hardware device. The project uses chump to allow disassembly and line assembly. Chump also allows new architectures to be easily added without the need to recompile the system. Communication with the backend is done using two pipes/fifos using a simple set of codes. Back end communication program can be created using very little memory on the target device.
PTXdist is a build system ("executable documentation") for compiling root filesystems for embedded systems. PTXdist is based on a KConfig configuration system in combination with a set of rules which describe how all the source packages out there have to be tweaked to be compiled into a proper root filesystem. Once a configuration has been developed, reproducing it is as easy as "ptxdist go".
