Using Fedora’s Windows cross compilers to extend EDA software distribution

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

Last week announced the availability of Fedora 11. This new release entails Windows cross-compilers
introduced by Fedora’s MinGW Special Interest Group.

The aim is to eliminate duplication of work for application developers by providing a range of libraries and development tools which have already been ported to the cross-compiler environment. This means that developers will not need to recompile the application stack themselves, but can concentrate just on the changes needed to their own application.

Though this feature will interest a wide range of software developers, I believe EDA vendors will also be very interested. I will demonstrate a quick example of how to use these Windows cross-compilers.

In this demo, I will use gerbv, a gerber viewer and the example “Temperature Collector” developed by Levente Kovacs.
