<h3>Eclipse TCF (Target Communication Framework)</h3>
<div id="introText">
The TCF Project provides a modular service-based communication system for building control, debug, and analysis
tools for embedded systems. TCF clients and services can discover each other at run-time, providing for streamlined
out-of-box experience. TCF uses a single communication link for all tooling needs, simplifying target communications
setup and ensuring a consistent view of the target state.
TCF can intelligently cache data on the host, reducing communication overhead and improving run-time performance.
A reference Eclipse view is available today to help you get started, as well as a complete C/C++ debugger for Linux.
The lightweight reference agent under EDL / BSD license is easy to port to other environments such as
hardware debuggers, trace units or simulators. Language bindings are available for a range of languages,
including C, Java, Python, and Lua, on both the host and the target side.
See the <a href="">TCF Wiki</a> for details.</p>

<h3>TCF Testimonials</h3>
By replacing a gdb based debugger with TCF, Xilinx has increased the performance
of basic debugger commands up to 50 times, while providing a much more stable product.<br/>
The modular and asynchronous approach of TCF is so compelling that we are moving
over our JTAG tools to use the same framework.</i><br/><br/>
