Complete development and debugging environment for Gold Maestro

Used In:

  • Any applications that use inter-process communication (IPC)

The G-MAS Developer Studio (GDS) is an integrated development and debugging environment customized to work with Elmo’s Gold Maestro multi-axis motion controller.

The GDS incorporates all the features of a standard development environment, allowing a programmer to create C/C++ projects, edit, debug and compile source code, and run software.

Elmo’s G-MAS multi-axis controller allows users to develop and run C /C++ programs within a G-MAS target CPU. It can also be run independently in the G-MAS and react to triggers sent from external user interfaces, such as HMI and PC controllers.

By offering a single, unified environment for the entire development process, the GDS makes it easier and faster to create new G-MAS applications. The GDS installation includes example templates for writing efficient code, handling input, output and Host communications, error handling and other standard tasks.
