Overview

iss-iconsIntel System Studio is a comprehensive and integrated tool suite that provides developers with advanced system tools and technologies to help accelerate the delivery of the next generation power efficient, high performance, and reliable embedded and mobile devices.

Intel System Studio 2014 now allows you to develop for embedded & mobile Android* and Tizen* IVI systems, added cross development from Windows* hosts, and provides expanded JTAG debug support for all IA platforms. The new agent based UEFI debug helps the system developers to accelerate time-to-market and strengthen reliability of these increasingly complex embedded and mobile systems. Eclipse* integration and cross-build capabilities allows for faster system development with Intel System Studio 2014.

Intel System Studio includes the components listed below:

Component Description
Intel® VTune™ Amplifier for Systems Advanced CPU and System-on-Chip (SoC) performance profiling and tuning
Intel® Energy Profiler Advanced GPGPU and System-on-Chip (SoC) power profiling and tuning
Intel® System Analyzer Real-time system-level performance analysis with CPU and GPU metrics for Android* targets
Intel® JTAG Debugger System debugger for in-depth SoC platform insights, featuring low overhead event tracing, logging, source level debug of EFI/UEFI firmware via JTAG and EDKII debug agent, bootloader, OS kernel, and drivers
GDB* Debugger Software debugger for fast application level defect analysis for increased system stability, application level instruction trace, and data race detection
Intel® Inspector for Systems Dynamic and static analyzer identifies difficult to find memory and threading errors to ensure functional reliability
Intel® C++ Compiler Industry- leading C/C++ compiler including the Intel® Cilk™ Plus parallel model for highly optimized performance. Binary and source compatible with GCC* compilers and cross-compilers
Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives Extensive library of high-performance software building blocks for signal, data, and multimedia processing
Intel® Math Kernel Library Highly optimized linear algebra, Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) , vector math, and statistics functions
System Visible Event Nexus (SVEN) 1.0 Technology Ultra-low overhead event tracing

Intel System Studio development tools combined with Intel Quark, Intel Atom™, Intel Core™ and Intel Xeon processor platforms provides developers added value and competitive edge in delivering robust embedded and mobile platform solutions across a wide range of markets.

Customer quotes:
“Intel® Inspector [part of Intel® System Studio] has a very intuitive user interface that helped me find both memory errors like leaks and data access errors along with threading errors like data races in one package” Ashley Driver, Solutions and Application Architect, Altech Multimedia

“Wind River is excited about the release of Intel® System Studio which includes support for the Wind River Linux operating system”, said Dinyar Dastoor, VP Product Management, Operating Environments at Wind River. “Providing deep insights into Intel Architecture, these tools help embedded and system developers rapidly implement Wind River Linux solutions that are reliable, responsive and power efficient.”

“The Intel® C++ Compiler provided right out of the box a 15% performance boost for our HEVC solution on Android* and Linux* based systems.”
Suresh Babu P V, Founder & Engineering Director, Squid Design Systems
