[Sammet 1969, p. 641]. ) (NYSE:FSL.B) is simplifying 8-bit product development with the introduction of its CodeWarrior(TM) Development Studio for HC(S)08 Microcontrollers v5.0, giving designers and programmers the opportunity to work more efficiently and more economically.
The CodeWarrior(TM) Development Studio is the first of several Freescale Fast Track 8-bit development tools and resources planned for 2006. This latest version has been re-architected to include built-in features and utilities that improve ease of use, speed and accessibility over previous versions of CodeWarrior software development tools. All editions are available as downloads from www.freescale.com/cw5.
"Freescale's CodeWarrior Development Studio v5.0 sets a new standard for an out-of-the-box experience for designers," said Alan R. Weiss Alan R.

"The new 'simple use model' functionality simply outpaces the competition in performance, allowing CodeWarrior Development Studio v5.0 to be one of the most flexible, broad-range tools we have ever tested. Our Synchromesh Computing engineers had no difficulties with this product and were clamoring to be part of the project. This is a testament to the CodeWarrior software development tools' heritage and the diligence of the people who designed and developed it."
With more than 100 example projects to help programmers get started, the Fast Track CodeWarrior software tools emphasize usability and allow developers to create a working project in as few as seven mouse clicks. The tools also allow switching target microcontrollers and the debug/Flash programming connection in an open project, and offer product updates and service packs available directly from www.freescale.com.
"All our customers are challenged to get better products to market faster than their competition, and they need simple, yet powerful tools in order to make this happen successfully, " said Mike McCourt, vice president and general manager of Freescale's microcontroller business. "Our latest CodeWarrior Development Studio v5.0 answers customers' demands. We've made this version fast, simple and easy to access, without losing powerful features."
