Segger has added support for 64bit RISC-V processor cores to itw Embedded Studio development tool The development environment comes integrated with the emRun C/C++ runtime and emFloat floating-point libraries, linker and compiler, which together generate compact and highly efficient code. For maximum flexibility and compatibility, the GNU compiler and linker are also included.
Embedded Studio's built-in debugger natively supports J-Link and a full-fledged simulator, ideal for automated testing. With its integration of the GDB remote protocol Embedded Studio enables the use of 3rd-party debug probes.

“64bit embedded systems are gaining popularity with faster chips and bigger applications,” said Ivo Geilenbruegge, Managing Director of Segger. “As the Embedded Experts, we are at the cutting edge of new technology. As a long-standing member of the RISC-V foundation, we are committed to broad RISC-V support, from small 32-bit through high-end 64-bit cores, from simple debug to flash programming and real-time trace. One IDE fits all.”
As the debug probe of choice for Embedded Studio users, J-Link supports all standard 32- and 64-bit RISC-V cores including non-intrusive background, system-bus memory access as well as Real-Time Transfer (RTT).
Features also available from within Embedded Studio include direct download into flash memory via an open flash loader interface giving the RISC-V ecosystem access to a catalogue of supported flash devices and the opportunity to add flash programming for newly developed devices.
