Dolphin Integration’s SmartVision IDE for faster IP-based projects

April 28, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Shorter time-to-market, optimised performance, and easier debug are among the claims for SmartVision: software developers, says Dolphin, need innovative solutions to replace obsolete development environments

SmartVision shortens time-to-market with easy import of models of peripherals for complete subsystem display and simulation, enabling developing and debugging both peripheral drivers and application software on a complete virtual prototype and securing the availability of a hardware prototyping platform.

Increased debug capacity; with a Virtual Prototype of the complete configuration, software developers can assess the impact of each line of code on each component of the sub-system. SmartVision enables both simulation and on-chip debug with an in-circuit emulator (ICE) and with built-in real-time debug (BIRD).

Improved microcontroller performance comes with advanced graphic viewers that facilitate the reuse of software libraries and the increase of application software performance with lower power consumption. Power consumption and speed profiling serve to identify and optimise the most resource-hungry functions.

SmartVision and its state-of-the-art SmartCC compiler are offered with all of Dolphin’s microcontrollers and in particular the new RISC 32-bit microcontroller Flip80351 Zephyr.
