CAMBRIDGE, UK, October 31, 2001, Crossware (, a leading embedded software tools developer, has released two suites of software for the FLT-68K Microprocessor Trainer, one of the leading systems for teaching microprocessor and control principles to electronic engineering and computing students worldwide.

The new Crossware software brings full source level debugging capabilities to this platform as well as C and assembler language support and source level simulation, accelerating the training process and allowing students to experience the benefits of industrial strength development tools. The FLT-68K Microprocessor Trainer is manufactured by Flite Electronics (

Crossware has been supplying software tools to go with this hardware since 1986. These have been used in conjunction with the FLT-68K firmware with its text based command-line interface. Crossware has now replaced this original firmware with its own debug monitor. This interfaces to Crossware's advanced Windows development environment to provide full source level debugging. The new debug monitor supports all of the system commands of the original firmware so all existing FLT-68K programs will run unmodified with the new system.

Two software suites are available. The first is the FLT-68K Training Suite - Standard Edition. This includes a relocatable macro cross-assembler, source level simulation and source level debugging and comprehensive documentation all accessible from within Crossware's advanced Embedded Development Studio. The second is the FLT-68K Training Suite - Advanced Edition. This incorporates all of the features of the Standard Edition and adds an advanced ANSI C compiler and libraries.

Both new and existing FLT-68K users throughout the world will appreciate the ease of use of this new system coupled with the backward compatibility with all of the existing training material and associated examples.
