The first tools for programming Xena (no, not the Warrior Princess) are now ready for distribution.
These tools provide the ability to load programs directly into the the Xena chip as well as monitor most of the internal registers as the code is executed.
In addition to the new tools, a new AmigaOS resource named xena.resource is included to arbitrate access to the new hardware features.
I have also included a simple .xe file that will flash two LEDs on the AmigaOne X1000 board, as a “proof of programming” demonstration.
These tools were ported from code provided by Segher Boessenkool. Please be sure to thank him if you see him around the XCore Exhange Forums.
The tools are available now and can be downloaded directly from Hyperion’s web site by all registered X1000 users. The new tools and documentation will be added to a future release of the AmigaOS SDK as well.
I hope these tools provide a beginning into the exploration of these Xciting new features.
