GNU ARM Eclipse: full Cortex-M7 support added

Post by ilg » Wed Nov 18, 2015 6:12 pm

Overview

The GNU ARM Eclipse project includes a set of open source Eclipse plug-ins and tools to create/build/debug/manage ARM (32-bits) and AArch64 (64-bits) applications and static/shared libraries, using the latest GNU ARM GCC toolchains.

ARM family and FPU type

Starting with GNU ARM Eclipse version 2.10.2, from November 2015, full Cortex-M7 support was added to the C/C++ Build -> Settings -> Tool Settings page; it is now possible not only to select the ARM family: cortex-m7, but also to select the new specific FPU type:

The project wizard was updated to create generic Cortex-M7 projects.

The STM32F7xx C/C++ Project wizard

And last, but probably the most useful, a new template to create STM32F7 projects was added.

The wizard currently supports STM32F745xx, STM32F746xx, STM32F756xx, and can create blinky projects for the STM32F746_EVAL and STM32F746_DISCOVERY boards.

The created projects not only pass the build, but are ready to run on the selected boards.

a little while back i did installs of eclipse luna and mars1 with cdt, openocd etc etc, also installed the ST CubeMX add-on.
all seems ok, sample code generated, compiled and linked with no problems.
platform is debian 8, java jdk1.8.0u51

from above post i've just done an 'install' which was adjusted to 'updates' as already installed

no show stopping or any other problems.
