IDE to begin

Fri Aug 07, 2015 9:35 am

Hello,

I am totally noob with ARM procesors. :( I have been playing with arduino before.
How could I start to develop? I would like to know what IDE I could use.
I have this JTAG - http://www.ebay.com/itm/J-Link-V8-USB-A ... 3f45662f15

If you are on windows, there is a WICED IDE, based on Eclipse, available from Broadcom. As I'm a Linux user, I have no experience of it, but I still use vanilla Eclipse for EMW development.
WICED supports J-Link out of the box, if you give the JTAG=jlink parameter in the make command line.

What do you mean "vanilla Eclipse"?

Just regular C++ eclipse...
calling something vanilla often refers to the unmodified thing.

You should take a look at the WiFiMCU Project:
http://www.emw3165.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=75

They've got a simple IDE and coding can be done with Lua - no need for a heavy IDE and toolchain to program the module.

The project is still in it's infancy, but it's definitely a great place to start. They also are selling a pretty good development board, check out the WiFiMCU sub-forum on this site for all the details.
