CooCox provides integration development environment called CoIDE for ARM Cortex M series microcontrollers. CoIDE supports ARM gcc based development environment of eclipse.
CoIDE just provides development environment without tool-chains. So you need to install tool-chains at first. We use ARM gcc 4.7 for tool-chains.
ARM GCC 4.7 Features:
Before you use CoIDE to start your project, you need to config the GCC compiler at first.
Cox-Peripheral interface is Common Wrapper Interface to port peripheral easily which is different in each vendors. If SPI is designed by Cox-Peripheral Interface starting as x(e.g. xGPIOModeSet), you can operate by changing just SPI interface PIN setting in each MCUs or EVB-boards.
Cookie is an open-source Arduino™ form-factor compatible ARM prototyping platform based on 32-bit ARM Cortex M0/3/4 MCUs plus hardware and software building blocks.
