CMSIS-Build is now replaced with the CMSIS-Toolbox that is a set of tools for creating and building projects that are based on software packs.

Content of this documentation is now provided here and individual pages are redirected to the corresponding pages in CMSIS-Toolbox documents.

Components of CMSIS-Toolbox

The CMSIS-Toolbox is developed under the Linaro Open-CMSIS-Pack project and contains these tools:

  • cpackget download, add and remove software packs.
  • csolution to create and manage complex applications with user source files and content from software packs
  • cbuild controls the build process that translates a project to a executable binary image.
  • packgen to create a software pack from a CMake based software repository.
  • packchk to validate a software pack

The CMSIS-Toolbox can be used as stand-alone tools with command line interface (CLI) but will be integrated into several other Arm tool solutions such as:

Development Workflow

The following diagram shows the development workflow using the CMSIS-Toolbox.

A solution that manages several related projects and projects can be composed using an intuitive *.yml format. This solution and project files are then translated using csolution CLI tool to the *.CPRJ project file format.

The individual *.CPRJ project files can be imported to an IDE or by using cbuild translated into executable binary images.

The *.CPRJ Project Format describes the input file format that is used by cbuild.
