Atollic TrueSTUDIO with RTXC Quadros RTOS awareness

Thirteen dockable windows display detailed status on RTOS tasks and other objects

Atollic TrueSTUDIO now provides deep visibility into the state of the RTXC Quadros RTOS during debugging.

Atollic (, a leading provider of development tools for embedded software, and Quadros Systems ( a leading provider of real-time operating systems (RTOS), today announced the availability of kernel aware debug support for the RTXC™ Quadros™ real-time operating system in the Atollic TrueSTUDIO IDE.

With kernel aware debugging TrueSTUDIO’s debugger is able to display detailed data on the state of the RTXC Quadros RTOS objects during a debug session. Each object is displayed in its own dockable window. These windows are available for objects such as tasks, queues, mutexes, semaphores, alarms, counters, event sources, partitions, mailboxes and pipes—13 windows available for detailed visibility into the kernel. To speed debugging the TrueSTUDIO debugger offers exceptional refresh speed on all views while stepping through code, or when hitting a breakpoint.
