Ashling to provide RiscFree™ RISC-V Toolchain support for Intel FPGAs
DALLAS – (BUSINESS THREAD) –Intel Vision 2022 – Ashling has announced that Ashling’s No Risk Toolchain will provide support for Intel’s FPGAs, including Intel’s Nios V processor later this year.
No risk is Ashling’s integrated development (IDE) environment that includes a compiler and debugger and provides software development and debugging support for Nios V, the next-generation smooth processor for Intel FPGA based on the overall architecture of RISC-V instructions.
Since its introduction, Ashling’s No risk toolchain has been steadily increasing its market share within the embedded tools market and is especially strong in the RISC-V market, where its ease of use, wide functionality and plug-in architecture have made it Preferred option for 32-bit and 64-bit basic RISC software development.
“We are pleased to announce our collaboration with Intel and the inclusion of Ashling’s RiscFree tools as part of Intel’s Nios V processor software development and debugging solution. We believe that the support of our RiscFree Toolchain Market leader will help accelerate the deployment of solutions with Intel’s Nios V processors throughout Intel’s FPGA family. dit Hugh O’Keeffe, CEO of Ashling.
“Intel is pleased to work with Ashling to enable the RiscFree toolkit for our new RISC-V-based Nios V processors,” he said. Deepali Trehan, vice president of Intel’s programmable solutions group. “Nios V opens up a broad open source RISC-V ecosystem, enabling our customers to use their preferred tool chains while saving development time and costs. ”
He RiscFree for Intel FPGA tool chain features include:
Project manager and build manager, including Make and CMake support with quick import, build, and debugging of application frameworks created by Intel Quartus
The Nios V GCC compiler toolbox is fully integrated into the No Risk IDE with support for newlib or picolibc runtime libraries using the Nios V Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) API for hardware access
Runtime debugging and real-time tracking with support for Intel FPGA II (USB Blaster II) download cable
Zephyr, FreeRTOS, and μC / OS RTOS provide debugging support and awareness
Support for custom instructions and extensions for the Nios V processor
