The S32 Design Studio is a complimentary Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for automotive and ultra-reliable Power Architecture® (e200 core) and Arm®-based microcontrollers and processors.

The S32DS IDE is a straight forward development tool based on open-source software, including Eclipse IDE, GNU Compiler Collection (GCC), and GNU Debugger (GDB), with no code-size limitations that enable editing, compiling and debugging of designs. The S32DS IDE supports Microsoft Windows 7/8/10 64-bit OS (with 32-bit binaries), Ubuntu 16.04 (64 bit), 18.04 (64 bit), Debian 8 (64 bit), and CentOS 7 (64 bit) host operating systems (OS).

Key Differentiators

  • Enabling editing, compiling and debugging
  • Free-of-charge with no code-size limitations
  • IDE based on Eclipse IDE, GCC and GDB
  • Help reducing development time
