I really do not understand Wavecom. A deal should be made between ARM and Wavecom to realase a compiler for wavecom modules. There are already compilation tools for TTPCom, Symbian and BREW environment which could be bought seperately. Those compilers’ price are around 1.500 USD.
If you want to use the Arm ADS 1.2 compiler you have to buy the whole realview 3.0 developer environment for 6000 USD. (6750 floating license). You will get an adittional CD which includes the old ADS 1.2 developer enviroment. Of course you will only need the ADS 1.2 compiler from that.
Instead of using two compiler wavecom should concentrate on one compiler and we will get better OpenAT in less time.
1000-2000 USD for a company is no price, and if you are a hobby developer you can use the demo version of the compiler or . I don’t think that wavecom sales come from hobby developers…
Anyway, i received official info that there is a big performence increase in the current RVCT 3.0 compiler (part of realview developer 3.0) compared to ADS 1.2, but you can only use ADS 1.2 ( or maybe RVCT 2.0) because OpenAT libaries are incompatible for the new compilers due to the byte order issue. I was said the GCC compiler is worse than ADS 1.2.
