News

DevTool 2.70 Build A (2019-Mar-6) now available!  This release includes a huge number of improvements and a number of bug fixes - here's a sampling:

  • Added script commands for verifying pulses, transitions, and pin levels over a time-window.  This provides a far more exhaustive pin verification capability than were possible using the 'verify_output_pin() because the latter just verifies the pin state at a snapshot in time, whereas the new commands verify the pin state over entire region of time and extra transitions in unexpected locations will fail.
  • Added a DevTool warning when the error handler executes.  Note that at first when we ran our test suite the error handler executed in a number of cases that turned out to be latent bugs that were now uncovered.  We had to fix several flaws in our internal tests that had been exposed.
  • Significantly improved the ease-of-use of the extremely powerful (but sometimes cumbersome and non-intuitive) waveform and trace windows.
  • Fixed a large number of bugs and issues with DevTool.  Note that the release notes cover only a fraction of the total number of fixed issues. So though the vast majority are quite small, cumulatively they represent a significant improvement to DevTool.
  • Added an installed demo for S32DS demo that runs on an MPC5777C EVB.
  • Fixed several ETEC Compiler/Linker toolset bugs.
  • Fixed a bug in the Angle Mode simulation model.

The release package also contains a new ETEC version (2.61A).  See the  release notes for more details.  Check out the new product and feature videos!
