Processing Flow

C compiler : ICC740
Optimizing ANSI C compiler with extensions for embedded systems. ICC740 includes the A740 assembler.
[Note] The ICC740 is NOT compatible with the assembler package M3T-SRA74. (Source files for M3T-SRA74 cannot be assembled by the assembler A740 of the M3T-ICC740 package. And M3T-ICC740 cannot link M3T-SRA74-generated relocatable files.)
Simulator debugger
Provides source level debugging capability in targetless system-level.
IDE (Integrated development environment): High-performance Embedded Workshop and TM
Provides seamless integration and easy access to all tools for coding, compiling, linking, and debugging. It greatly increases productivity.
