BSC0001 - Getting started with winIDEA
Online Training for iSYSTEM Software and Hardware Tools (Alpha Version)
Many thanks for taking the time to visit our preliminary Online Training Portal. We are currently in the alpha-testing phase of our first training package which we are sharing with select customers to acquire early feedback on content, design, benefit and quality.
Our first training package is focused on our winIDEA integrated development environment together with our BlueBox On-Chip Analyser technology. Regardless of whether you have the time to review the material in its entirety, or only can review a few units, your feedback on its effectiveness and accuracy would help us greatly.
Once you have completed the course, we would be grateful if you could provide us with your feedback using our online survey.
BSC0001 - Introduction to winIDEA
This training introduces our integrated development environment (IDE) winIDEA. It focuses on the basics, starting with the creation of a workspace, configuration of the environment for your chosen debug hardware and target microcontroller, then moving on to key debugging features and capabilities. These cover everything from breakpoints, watching variables, visualising memory content and the export of disassembly code.
Advanced features, such as program and data trace, are not covered in this training.
This alpha version is accompanied by a lab manual that contains practical exercises, allowing the learner to try out their new knowledge. Currently the lab manual is laid out to use the iC5000 together with the Atmel SAM3X8E (as featured on the Arduino DUE). Later versions will cover a variety of BlueBox™ technology and various MCU architectures.
