Hello, since some time I'm using a GNU ARM toolchain (WinARM) and I'm almost happy. Although I'm using the GDB and the OpenODC for debugging purposes, I'm still missing a simulator. Recently I found out that it is possible to use the GNU compiler together with the limited uVision IDE from Keil. I'm wodering if the simulator is also limited somehow. The info that I managed to find from the Keil's website it seems that it is not limited at all, however this seems very strange. Does somebody have had the chance to try the ARM simulator from Keil together with the GCC compiler. Is it worth to spend time on this? If the limitation comes only from the compiler/linker and then by replacing it would be possible to use powerful tool chain for free ;) Thanks in advance!

As far as I know debugger and simulator of the evaluation version are limited to 16kByte. The limitation does not depend on the used toolchain/compiler. There is a forum at keil.com which might be a better place to ask.
Hello, I'm using the latest version of WinARM together with the PN. Since the debuggin possibility with Eclipse+OpenOCD doesn't not work stable with my setup I'm trying to use a limited version of the Keil's uVision IDE, together with the compiler from the WinARM toolchain, in order to utilize it's simulator. 16K code is not a limiting factor for me. I've done everything as it is described in the uVision_glue.zip file. This ..\Keil\ARM\Boards\Atmel\AT91SAM7S-EK\Blinky\blinky.Uv2 project example seems to be compiled corectly. The next thing I tried was to import one of my existing SAM7 projects (make file based, using PN, according to examples from the WinARM package) into the uVision IDE, but I failed. How can I force the IDE to use the make files that I'm using? Without the make there is no benefit from the Uvision for me. Is there somebody that had the same problem as me? Thanks in advance for your support!
