6.3.2 Supported compiler toolchains

The makefile for setting up the simulation is created for the Linux platform.

You can recompile the precompiled example tests or your own tests using any of the following:

  • ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5).
  • ARM Keil® Microcontroller Development Kit (MDK).
  • GNU Tools for ARM Embedded Processors (ARM GCC).

Keil MDK is available only for the Windows platform. Therefore, to use Keil MDK, you must carry out the software compilation and the simulation in two separate stages. A limited term license of Keil MDK is included with the Cortex®-M3 DesignStart™ Eval product. You will need to install this license to compile some of the tests that are provided.

For more information on recommended versions of the compiler toolchain, see 6.3.4 Setting up the simulation tools.
