IAR Systems adds full C++ support to embedded development tools
IAR Systems today announced IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM 6.10, the latest version of its comprehensive tool chain for embedded developers. Supporting a wide range of ARM targets, this version of Embedded Workbench is the first to incorporate full ISO / ANSI specification support of C++.
Developers using IAR Embedded Workbench can now benefit from the full feature set of the C++ language, including useful but resource consuming features like STL, RTTI and exceptions. When running on high-end embedded processors these features can help increase productivity and make applications more robust.

C++ is increasingly being used for the development of large embedded systems in application areas such as consumer electronics and infotainment. These systems often run on high-end processors with enough performance to house powerful but resource-demanding C++ language features. The full C++ support now offered by IAR Embedded Workbench allows easier integration of commercially available software that shortens development cycles. It also avoids the risks associated with using a C++ compiler not to the ISO/ANSI C++ specification since future updates of commercial software will be supported regardless of which language features are being utilized.
