I am looking for a gratis Ada compiler – at least; preferably an IDE, including debugger – to run on a MIP processor (specifically this SBC). Preferably with Ada 2012 support (SPARK, or similar static code analysis a bonus).

Preferably a Windows app, but I can live with Linux.

You might want to check the Debian repository for options. Debian stable (stretch) seems to have a (slightly outdated) cross-compiler + IDE available out-of-the-box:

Debian testing (buster) seems to contain more recent versions:

Please note that I did not test this. Moreover, it seems that the board you reference is build around a Mediatek MT7688 SoC which contains an embedded MIPS 24KEc processor. I'm not sure which endianess the processor uses: big (mips target) or little (mipsel target).

  • Welcome aboard and thanks very much for your help. I will dig into this.
