4.2 Examples provided with DS-5

DS-5 provides a selection of examples to help you get started:

  • Bare-metal software development examples for ARMv7 and earlier that illustrate:
    • Compilation with ARM® Compiler 5.
    • Compilation with GCC bare-metal compiler.
    • ARMv7 bare-metal debug.
    The code is located in the archive file <examples_directory>\Bare-metal_examples_ARMv7.zip.
  • Bare-metal software development examples for ARMv8 that illustrate:
    • Compilation with ARM Compiler 6.
    • Compilation with GCC bare-metal compiler.
    • ARMv8 bare-metal debug.
    The code is located in the archive file <examples_directory>\Bare-metal_examples_ARMv8.zip.

    Note

    ARMv8 features are available only in the DS-5 Ultimate Edition.
  • Bare-metal example projects for supported boards that demonstrate board connection and basic debug into on-chip RAM. The files are located in the archive file, examples_directory\Bare-metal_boards_examples.zip.
  • ARM Linux examples built with GCC Linux compiler that illustrate build, debug, and performance analysis of simple C/C++ console applications, shared libraries, and multi-threaded applications. These examples run on a Fixed Virtual Platform (FVP) that is preconfigured to boot ARM Linux. The files are located in the archive file, examples_directory\Linux_examples.zip.
  • The RTX Real-Time Operating System (RTX-RTOS) source files and examples demonstrate the RTX-RTOS applications. The files are located in the archive file, examples_directory\CMSIS_RTOS_RTX_A9.zip.
  • Optional packages with source files, libraries, and prebuilt images for running the examples.
    These can be downloaded from: https://silver.arm.com/browse/DS500 (Registration required).
    • Linux distribution project with header files and libraries for the purpose of rebuilding the ARM Linux examples.
You can extract these examples to a working directory and build them from the command-line, or you can import them into Eclipse using the import wizard. All examples provided with DS-5 contain a preconfigured Eclipse launch script that enables you to easily load and debug example code on a target.
Each example provides instructions on how to build, run, and debug the example code. You can access the instructions from the main index, examples_directory\docs\index.html.
