EE Times article on HW/SW Codevelopment
In my last post I was writing about the new IDE integration with ARM's µVision IDE and, afterwards, got myself in a bit of a tizzy about how all these hardware+software environments are so mean to the software engineers. Those tools are so hardware-focused, with a bit of software support bolted on to make it look good, that I got onto a big high horse about it and wrote an article. I had to get it all off my chest. EE Times published it over the New Year.
"In this Product How-To article, Mark Saunders of Cypress looks at the problems of hardware/software co-development from the point of view of the software designer using the company s PSoC Creator to illustrate his exposition."
I really think this is the way software should be developed for a programmable device like PSoC. Well, ANY programmable device for that matter (here I go again). You should be able to use the IDE you want to use, not the one the hardware people give you. Have a quick read and let me know what you think!
