Added Support For Hi3861 Linux Burning:

This release brings the Hi3861 Linux burning support, for better performance on the Linux system. The Hi3861V100 and BearPi-HMNano development boards were founded on the Hi3861 chip, which is a lightweight burning system.

The previous version only supports the Window platforms and the develops have to choose other ways for compiling and burning processes on Linux. After this update, the developer can easily copy the code on Linux for better performance.

Added Support For Stack Analysis and Image Analysis:

Insufficient or memory overflow are the two most common problems while developing a lightweight device. The developers need to pay extra attention to memory usage during development. Therefore, the latest release brings the stack and image analysis support.

Both the support works on the Hi3861V100 development board. Furthermore, the mirror analysis function analyzes elf file-memory usage meanwhile the stack analysis function is responsible for the following functions.

  • Static binary files compilation
  • Sack cost estimation
  • Function call relationship diagrams
  • Accurate static memory analysis

Method: Once the stack analysis and image analysis are complete, the analysis report can access by entering the navigation bar in DebugTool. The beta 2 updates added new buttons for image analysis and stack analysis.

Added Support For Application Compatibility Testing:

The application compatibility test ensures a stable operation of partners’ devices that runs on HarmonyOS. After integrating a uniform interface and market experience, the application undergoes various compatibility tests before the stable releases.

This new app compatibility test works on the Hi3516DV300 development board and can be performed on a Linux system. There is no need to replicate compile files on Windows workbench in the command line.

Method: The click button initiates the test after configuring several standards and saving the file. There is a Test button in the project task, pressing it will start the compatibility test and the result will be shown on the display window.

Added Emulator Function:

The new emulator function replaces the micro control unit or MCU in the physical system. It’ll let the developer verify the normal operation of the image file, which isn’t possible with the previous physical development board.

Method: The new simulator carried a mirror run that can be initiated with the task icon in the project tasks after compiling the build task.

  • While Importing a project, MCU select arm_virt
  • In the generated template configuration page, it prefers build-version
