AVIX-RT, a manufacturer of embedded software solutions, anounces the availability of an MPLAB RTOS Viewer Plugin, enabling direct insight in the internals of an application based on the AVIX RTOS. Compatible with all versions of AVIX, the AVIX Viewer Plugin shows the state of the AVIX kernel objects used by your application. Kernel objects supported by AVIX and thus presented by the AVIX Viewer Plugin are threads, mutexes, semaphores, event groups, pipes and memory pools. The AVIX Viewer Plugin can be used both when simulating your application in the MPLAB development environment or when running on real hardware ineracting with MPLAB through an ICD2 or RealICE.
When using the AVIX Viewer Plugin with the MPLAB simulator, it offers the added advantage of real time updates. While your application runs, the AVIX Viewer Plugin constantly updates the state of the application kernel objects with a user selectable refresh rate.
The AVIX Viewer Plugin enhances the testability of an AVIX based application and adds to the dynamic non-intrusive trace facility built into the core of AVIX, Thread Activation Tracing. In combination, the AVIX Viewer Plugin and Thread Activation Tracing offer a level of dynamic and static testability not offered by many competing products.
The AVIX Viewer Plugin can be freely downloaded from the AVIX-RT website, together with a free demo version of AVIX in its latest version 2.2.1.
