The Dynamic C® integrated development environment reduces the time and effort to write real-time software for embedded systems that use a Rabbit® microprocessor enabling easy development of a wide range of applications.
Rabbit integrates editing, compiling, linking, loading, and debugging into a single development environment as one function. All of the elements work together to give you a seamless environment, with no worries about compatibility moving from one stage to another. Once your design is complete you can debug it on the target hardware and see how your code works. Because it is a dialect of C, the Dynamic C language has all the statements and constructions of traditional C, plus extensions that make it easier to write reliable, real-time multitasking software.
|Costatements||Simplify the implementation of state machines|
|Function Chaining||Control flow mechanism that allows callable segments of code to be embedded within one or more functions|
|Cofunctions||Allow cooperative processes to be implemented in a single program|
|Slice Statements||Enable preemptive processes in a single program|
Remote Device Management
The Device Cloud by Etherios platform is fully integrated in Dynamic C allowing easier access to remote devices and an easy interface for remote firmware updates. Device Manager datasheet
It's easy to get started. Simply connect one of Rabbit's development kits to your computer using serial or USB connection. Dynamic C supports device connection to systems via wired or wireless Ethernet, RS-232 and ZigBee. Over 400 well-organized sample programs, a variety of supplied routines and hardware drivers will get you up and running in a matter of minutes.
The combination of the Dynamic C environment and Rabbit microprocessors supports the fast development of low cost intelligent devices that perform a wide range of functions, including switching motors on and off, actuating valves, controlling displays, keyboard controls, and making telephone calls. With the numerous network connectivity options and Internet capability you can send emails, serve web pages, accept commands, report exceptions, or raise alarms, just to name a few examples.
Debugging is easy with Dynamic C's built-in editor. No in-circuit emulator or analyzer is needed. One of the most significant advantages delivered by the Dynamic C IDE is that you execute and debug your design directly on the same, proven hardware you use for your final product. You won’t have to build a prototype to test the software, and you significantly reduce the time and effort to integrate software and hardware.
Download your design to the Rabbit core module or single board computer using a USB or serial connection, and then debug it interactively at either the source code or machine code level. The integrated debugger allows you to single-step from one statement to another. Since the integrated debugger is not line-oriented, you won’t have to re-compile to start the debug process.
You can complete software development with much greater confidence and with far less time. This capability is enabled by the target communications package and debugging kernel, both of which are integrated into the Dynamic C tools.
The Dynamic C integrated design environment includes libraries to configure your application. When you complete your design, the Dynamic C IDE will only compile what is needed for your specific design, keeping the application footprint small and minimizing the amount of program storage you need.
|AES||Advanced Encryption Standard. This is an implementation of the Rijndael Advanced Encryption Standard cipher with 128 bit key. This is useful for encrypting sensitive data to be sent over unsecured network paths.|
|SSL||SSL is the most common form of security used on the Internet. All modern web browsers support it. Rabbit's efficient, small footprint implementation SSL allows SSL security to be added to web-enabled applications with just a few lines of code. The SSL module includes a utility program for generating the security certificates needed to use SSL.|
|FAT File System||Popular, network-accessible file system for flash memories.|
|Program to encrypt Dynamic C library source files.|
|µC/OS-II Real-time Kernel||Popular, real-time preemptive, prioritized operating system.|
|Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)||TCP/IP functionality for serial and PPPoE connections.|
|Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)||Management software for networked devices|
|Modbus TCP||Ethernet variant of the standard communication protocol in industrial automation systems|
