Segger announces Embedded Studio for M1, Apple’s Arm-based SoC
Shortly after Apple announced its first Arm-based SoC, the Apple M1, Segger released a version of its Embedded Studio cross-platform integrated development environment (IDE) for Arm/Cortex and RISC-V.
The Apple M1 SoC is designed specifically for Mac use. It can execute applications for Intel x86-based CPUs using Apple’s Rosetta 2 translator, although applications built specifically for the M1 core execute much faster and use less power.
To optimise the speed and performance potential of a natively compiled application, Segger has created a build of Embedded Studio for M1. There are now two macOS packages available, one for the Intel x86-64 and one for the Apple M1.
“The Embedded Studio build for the Apple M1 is truly cutting-edge,” says Ivo Geilenbrügge, Segger’s managing director. “This is the first commercial embedded system IDE optimised for the M1,” he confirmed.
Segger Microcontroller has over 28 years of experience in embedded computer systems, producing software libraries, and offering a full set of hardware tools (for development and production) and software tools.
Segger provides an RTOS and a complete spectrum of software libraries including communication, security, data compression and storage, user interface software and more.
Segger’s professional software libraries and tools for embedded system development are designed for resource-constrained embedded systems.
