Segger’s Embedded Studio IDE now free for GigaDevice’s RISC-V customers

GigaDevice and Segger have partnered to provide GigaDevice’s customers free access to Segger’s Embedded Studio IDE. This offer extends to all GigaDevice RISC-V microcontrollers, including the latest GD32VW553.

Embedded Studio is a tool for embedded C and C++ development. The company says it offers a complete toolchain, run-time library, core simulator and hardware debugging capabilities. It also supports GD32V RISC-V MCUs and other Segger tools like J-Link debug probe, Ozone debugger and embOS real-time operating system.

GigaDevice launched the GD32VF103 series, a 32-bit general-purpose MCU product line based on RISC-V, in 2019. BCC research says the market for RISC-V technology is projected to achieve a value of $2.7 billion by 2027.

GIGADevice recently launched the GD32VW553 series, a dual-band wireless device with a 160MHz RISC-V core. It supports Wi-Fi 6 and BLE 5.2 protocols, offering hardware encryption and high performance with low energy consumption. The company says they are suitable for smart home appliances, industrial Internet and communication gateway applications.

According to GigaDevice’s product marketing director, Eric Jin, GigaDevice and Segger have a history of collaboration. Segger was the first ecosystem partner to support the GD32V RISC-V core MCUs.

He further states that providing Segger Embedded Studio to customers at no cost facilitates software development for the GD32V series.

“Embedded Studio fully supports and adapts to the GD32V family of RISC-V MCUs in terms of efficiency, performance, and ease of use, significantly accelerating the development and mass production of innovative applications,” Jin comments.

Ivo Geilenbruegge, Segger’s managing director, states: “We are impressed by their speed of innovation, the many new devices they have brought to market, and the extent to which they’ve quickly become a key player in the industry.”

GigaDevice is a fabless supplier of semiconductor solutions, offering product lines in flash memory, MCU, sensors and analog. With a focus on industrial, automotive, computing, consumer electronics, IoT, mobile, networking and communications, GigaDevice aims to provide various solutions and services. The company holds certifications in automotive functional safety and ISO standards for environmental and occupational health and safety management.

Segger Microcontroller, which has been in the embedded system industry for over 30 years, offers RTOS, software libraries, debug and trace probes and software development tools.

Last month, Rapidus Corporation, a Japanese company specializing in advanced logic semiconductors, partnered with Tenstorrent Incorporation, a provider of embedded hardware optimized for artificial intelligence applications. The collaboration is for both companies to build semiconductor IP for edge computing environments based on 2nm manufacturing process technology.

Rapidus is building an Innovative Integration for Manufacturing (IIM) facility in Japan to produce advanced semiconductors at the 2 nm technology node. They also partnered with Albany Nanotech Complex and IBM in the USA to develop the necessary technologies for 2nm logic semiconductor production.
