Hardware and Software Development Tools

Development toolsFor a company focused on the Electrical, Electronic and Software Services, the software tools are fundamental for the business development, we use the best in class tools in order to provide the most appropriate service to our customers. We use our standard tools very good positioned in the market, but always we are open to use the tools that our clients wants. Our tools are categorized in 2 big areas:

Related to design of hardware development. We have Electronic Design Automation (EDA or ECAD) for designing of electronic systems and generic Computer Aided Design (CAD) for electric design.

In the area of software development. We have specialized Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for embedded systems and generic IDE for PC and web applications.

Keil MDK-ARM Microcontroller Development Kit

keil arm mdkCISIUM is a company specialized in electronic product development based on ARM cores, with the preference in NXP’s implementations. Based on that scenario, a perfect matching is the IDE MDK-ARM originally from Keil, a company bought by ARM.

We like the free version MDK-Lite, fully functional but limited to 32KB, more than enough for a very deep embedded applications. The Keil MDK-ARM is easy to use, efficient, fast to compile, a native tool from ARM than ensures a perfect integration with the latest ARM technologies.

The MDK-ARM is a complete software development environment for Cortex™-M, Cortex-R4, ARM7™ and ARM9™ processor-based devices. MDK-ARM is specifically designed for microcontroller applications, it is easy to learn and use, yet powerful enough for the most demanding embedded applications.

MonoDevelop: IDE for C# and Other .NET Languages

MonoDevelopThe software development is a fundamental part of CISIUM. The classic approach of only MS Windows development is not any more valid, nowadays the scenario has change a lot and it is required to support new operation systems like Mac, Linux, and mobile platform like iPhone, iPad or Android.

For high level software development our preference is Visual C#, the inconvenience is that only it is natively supported by MS Windows. To provide support to none Windows platform, we have introduce in CISIUM MonoDevelop an IDE primarily designed for C# and other .NET languages.

MonoDevelop enables us to quickly write desktop and ASP.NET Web applications on Linux, Windows and Mac OSX. MonoDevelop makes it easy for developers to port .NET applications created with Visual Studio to Linux and to maintain a single code base for all platforms.
