for Eclipse-based ARM® IDEs
PEmicro's GDB Server Plug-In for Eckipse-based ARM IDEs allows GNU GDB tools to work with the OpenSDA and OSJTAG embedded debug circuitry incorporated into many of NXP's Tower and Freedom development boards, as well as PEmicro's ARM Cortex-compatible hardware interfaces. A free download of the plug-in is available.

MULTILINK Debug/Development Interfaces
PEmicro�s Multilinks are versatile interfaces for development and debug that enable communication between your PC and target device for in-circuit debugging or programming. Multilink debug probes work with devices from NXP and many ARM device manufacturers. Standard and high-speed versions are available.

Production Programmers
PEmicro's Cyclone LC and Cyclone FX programmers are extremely flexible production programming tools designed for in-circuit flash programming. Cyclone operations can be fully automated, or the Cyclone can be used in stand-alone mode. Cyclone FX programmers add a host of enhancements to the Cyclone platform, including faster speed, larger and expandable storage, and enhanced security. PEmicro's Cyclone LC and Cyclone FX support a broad range of ARM device manufacturers, as well as a variety of additional architectures from NXP and other manufacturers.
