Macraigor Systems LLC announced JTAG debug and flash programming support for several Freescale PowerPC and MIPS Technologies 64bit processors.

Full JTAG debug and Flash programming support has been added for Freescale's MPC5200 rev. B processor and 83xx PowerQUICC II Pro family of processors. Full JTAG debugging and control of these processors will be supported by all Macraigor debug solutions when used with the OCDemon family of products. In addition, Macraigor's flash programming application has been updated to support the following:
•Freescale MPC5500 family of processors;
•Freescale MAC71xx family of processors; and
•MIPS 5kc-based 64bit processors, including Phillips PR1900, Toshiba TX49 family and Broadcom BCM1250 and BCM1125.

Macraigor has also added support for these processors to the free, pre-built GNU tools suite to include sample configurations for standard evaluation boards. These examples contain source, gdbinit and make files for each board. The included demo program allows developers to build, download and debug a small application via gdb.

"The Macraigor debug tools provide developers with solutions that leverage the ever increasing processing power and bandwidth of the Freescale and MIPS processors," explained Craig Haller, chief engineer of Macraigor. "At the same time, these tools provide the cost efficiencies that are essential to next-generation automotive control, consumer and telecommunications equipment manufacturers in this difficult economic environment."

The OCDemon family of debug tools is available for the ARM, MIPS and PowerPC processors. OCDemon Flash Programmer, Flash Access and Target Access are priced at Rs.22,825 ($500) each for the first license, and incremental licenses are Rs.4,565 ($100) each. OCD Commander, an assembly-level software debugger, and OCD Remote, the GNU tools suite, are available at no charge from Macraigor's website.
