Eindhoven and Ljubljana, December 18, 2014 - NXP today unveiled the new BeyondStudioTM IDE for the JN516x range of wireless microcontrollers for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The comprehensive software development environment, developed by Beyond Semiconductor, dramatically simplifies the development of software on the JN516x family improving code density, reducing development time and improving code quality. Used in conjunction with the Beyond Debug Key, it provides full access to the JTAG software debug feature of the chips, simplifying and accelerating the development process.
For almost a decade, the JN51xx microcontroller family has provided the optimum hardware platform for Zigbee products, integrating the highly efficient BA22 32-bit processor and a 2.4 GHz radio transceiver on a single chip, said Simon Wadsworth, Software Team Leader at NXP Semiconductors. BeyondStudio now brings improvements in code size, performance, and software development productivity, giving NXP customers even more advantage over those using competing products in the Zigbee space. Main features in BeyondStudio for NXP include:
NXP, as a lead customer, significantly influenced the BA22 focus on lowest code density without sacrificing performance or power consumption, said Matjaz Breskvar, chief executive officer of Beyond Semiconductor. By simultaneously developing the compiler, instruction set architecture and processor from the ground up, Beyond achieved leading-edge code quality ten years ago and we have been steadily improving it since. Todays BeyondStudio IDE announcement highlights our most recent improvements in code quality, ease of debug and software development productivity.
BeyondStudio for NXP is available from the NXP Wireless connectivity TechZone and is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7 onwards.
