See “How to Add Register Details View in Eclipse” how to install and use the plugin.To install:

  1. Use the Eclipse updater to install the plugins from http://embsysregview.sourceforge.net/update
  2. Download the latest zip archive file version from the sourceforge page (https://sourceforge.net/projects/mcuoneclipse/files/Eclipse%20Plugins/EmbSysReg/). Place the files from the archive over your Eclipse installation.

The earlier v0.2 patch file included support for 33 devices:

:!: Note that the current SVD files from Freescale (and other vendors) do *not* contain the ARM core registers (NVIC, etc). According to ARM, this ‘intentional’ as they expect the debugger to give native access to the ARM core registers, and not to duplicate content in the SVD files. I hope this will change soon (e.g. the SVD files be able to reference the core registers somehow), as otherwise SVD files are somewhat limited. Or has anyone SVD files for the ARM core registers so the community can benefit from it?
