Atollic Launches World’s Most Powerful ARM® Development and Testing Tool!

Atollic® continues to lead embedded development tools innovation with the release of the TrueSTUDIO® Premium edition! Built on the well-established TrueSTUDIO Pro, the world’s most powerful IDE for embedded C/C++ development, the Premium edition extends the tool’s capabilities even further to include code testing and test quality measurement features as standard!

TrueSTUDIO Premium

Built-in testing capabilities – enhanced quality in less time.
The TrueSTUDIO Premium edition unites TrueSTUDIO Pro with the Atollic TrueVERIFIER® unit testing tool and the Atollic TrueANALYZER® MC/DC-level code coverage analysis tool in a single seamless and smoothly integrated package, thus creating the world’s first embedded C/C++ compiler and debugger IDE with built-in testing capabilities as standard. The TrueSTUDIO Premium edition is designed to help embedded systems developers to achieve two important but often mutually exclusive goals – achieving higher software quality, while at the same time, meeting ever increased time-to-market requirements for product releases.

Automated testing.
Unit testing, using either white-box testing, black-box testing or test driven development (TDD) is a proven way to reduce software bugs and enhance code quality and reliability. However, it is also a time consuming and error prone process to build up and tear down test scaffolds, generate unit test vectors, execute the tests themselves, and compile and collate the results. TrueSTUDIO Premium edition includes the TrueVERIFIER unit testing tool, and automates much of this process while at the same time preserving flexibility for adapting unit tests to specific requirements. The tool analyzes the source code, auto-generate test suites, builds the application with test scaffold, downloads, and executes on the target board. Test results and achieved test coverage is then uploaded to the host for easy visualization in the IDE. This radically improves the efficiency and reliability of unit test implementation, execution and interpretation and archiving of test results and saving time.

Increased test confidence and code reliability.
The TrueANALYZER integration into TrueSTUDIO Premium edition vastly simplifies rigorous test quality measurement. TrueANALYZER is designed to answer a fundamental question that all software developers face during system tests: how do you know that the test procedures have exercised all possible paths of execution through the code? This is critically important to know, as untested paths may well contain one or more of those “million dollar” bugs that compromise both software quality and the company’s bottom line and reputation. TrueSTUDIO Premium edition measures the quality of the system tests up to the highly rigorous MC/DC (modified condition/decision coverage) level. It thus improves confidence in code reliability and robustness, as well as highlighting inadequately tested parts of the software. Atollic TrueSTUDIO Premium edition not only displays the achieved test quality, but also quantifies where in the code, and why, the test coverage did or did not improve. These data enable easy debugging and improvement of testing protocols!

TrueSTUDIO, Pro vs. Premium

Atollic TrueSTUDIO Premium edition inherits all the powerful features of Atollic TrueSTUDIO Pro, including parallel compilation, RTOS aware debugger with a built-in crash analyzer, multicore and multiprocessor debugging, event and instruction tracing, as well as target support for approximately 2000 ARM® devices from leading semiconductor manufacturers.


The polished and professional integration of TrueVERIFIER and TrueANALYZER into TrueSTUDIO means that embedded software developers have a consistent user interface that greatly simplifies routine tasks, and significantly extends the power of the IDE into previously unrealized areas. For the first time, a developer can not only design, implement, debug code, but can execute rigorous testing and test evaluation protocols with unprecedented speed, simplicity and accuracy.
