Not sure if this is the right place for this or not, so excuse me if I have not "chosen wisely."
I'm a hobbyist working on a project that I MAY productize and try to sell. I have begun with the mbed platform of embedded boards. However I have quickly grown tired of their online compiler with no debugging capability. So, now I'm looking for recommendations on good (and reasonably priced) IDE options for ARM embedded development.
I have asked this question elsewhere and have not gotten any really complete answers.
One tool that I have looked at is Sourcery CodeBench from Mentor Graphics. It looks promising but I've not found anyone that has used it. I have gotten a recommendation on Rowley CrossStudio. I have been using the free version of LPCXpresso but it does not optimize code very well and C++ code struggles to fit on my NXP ARM Cortex M3 LPC1347 based board.
So, what are everyone's feelings on development tools? I need to keep a keen eye toward price because at this point this is just a hobby and I can't afford to spend thousands on development tools.
Thanks in advance!
If you want to explore paid products then checkout Jetbrain's products. They are the best in the biz.
If you are exploring top online ides then again Visual Studio Codespace, Cloud9 is the best cloud-based solution.
7 years late to the party, and:
as Tim Borland said in the OP that he's coming from mbed - that's highly unlikely!
