 - CMSIS-Pack:
   - System Description SDF Format: describe more complex debug topologies than with a Debug Description in a tool agnostic way
   - Github based workflow: allows to develop software packs using github infra-structure
   - Flash algorithm via debugger: Some TurstZone enable devices cannot execute RAM. Commands that allow flash programming will be added to Debug Description.
   - CPDSC project file format: allows project templates that are agnostic of an IDE
   - Minimize need for IDE specific settings: CMSIS-Pack supports IDE specific parameters. Analyze and minimize

This GitHub development repository contains already pre-built libraries of various software components (DSP, RTOS, RTOS2).

These libraries are validated for release.

To build a complete CMSIS pack for installation the following additional tools are required:

 - **doxygen.exe**    Version: 1.8.6 (Documentation Generator)

 - **mscgen.exe**     Version: 0.20  (Message Sequence Chart Converter)
 - **7z.exe (7-Zip)** Version: 16.02 (File Archiver)

Using these tools, you can generate on a Windows PC:
 - **CMSIS Software Pack** using the batch file **gen_pack.bat** (located in ./CMSIS/Utilities). This batch file also generates the documentation.
  
 - **CMSIS Documentation** using the batch file **genDoc.bat** (located in ./CMSIS/Doxygen). 

The file ./CMSIS/DoxyGen/How2Doc.txt describes the rules for creating API documentation.
