News Release from:
10 September 2009
IAR Systems has announced availability of IAR Embedded Workbench for Cortex-M. Believed to be one of the world's first integrated development environment designed specifically for ARM Cortex-M0, Cortex-M1, and Cortex-M3 based cores, IAR Embedded Workbench for Cortex-M provides a comprehensive set of tools in a single package. Based on the latest full license edition of IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM 5.40, this limited license edition is competitively priced and helps keep the costs of equipping development engineers with industry respected toolsets to a minimum. It is perfect for developers just entering the ARM Cortex market.
The package includes an editor, project management tools, a highly optimizing C and C++ compiler, and a C-SPY simulator. Other tools include hardware debugging functions, support for RTOS-aware debugging on hardware, run-time libraries, relocating assembler, linker and librarian tools.
IAR Embedded Workbench for Cortex-M provides extensive support for a wide range of hardware debug systems and RTOSes and generates very compact and efficient code. Ready-made device configuration files, flash loaders and example projects are also included. The complier can check against the rules of MISRA C (MISRA C:2004) software development standard as established by the Motor Industry Software Reliability Association.
Jean Anne Booth, WW marketing director for Stellaris® ARM Cortex-M3 MCUs at Texas Instruments Incorporated comments, We welcome IAR Systems new tool set for ARM Cortex-M applications. The market has been looking for a comprehensive, sensibly-priced bundle of tools to help engineers quickly develop applications for our Stellaris ARM Cortex-M3-based low-power MCUs, and the new IAR Embedded Workbench for Cortex-M delivers to this need.
An evaluation edition of IAR PowerPac RTOS, file system, USB stack and a TCP/IP stack bundles in included within the package. IAR RTOS plugins are available from IAR Systems and other leading RTOS vendors.
