Software Required

For code development, you need an ARM toolchain (C compiler, assembler, linker, debugger). There are several choices:

  • GNUARM GNU tool chain (GCC, etc), free, no size limit.
  • CodeSourcery, GNU based, commercial, “Lite Edition” at no charge (no size limit, but includes command line tools only).
  • IAR, commerical, 32K code-size-limited version (free). Download Info
  • Keil, commercial.
  • ARM RealView, commercial, expensive, reportedly has significantly better code generation than any other ARM compiler.

If you only want to download binaries, you need the Amtel SAM-BA download program (free). Download.

If you want full-debugging capabilities, you will need a hardware ICE solution, or a debugger supporting the JTAG interface that you are using (see the hardware required section for related information. Note: most of the software tool chains above support the Amtel A91SAM-ICE and Segger J-Link unit.
