IAR Systems has announced that its development tools for ARM enhance and extend the R-IN32M3 platform for industrial Ethernet protocols from Renesas Electronics. To ease development and evaluation of the device, IAR Systems has launched its starter kit IAR KickStart Kit for R-IN32M3 which includes IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM.
IAR KickStart Kit for R-IN32M3 contains evaluation versions of IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM, a R-IN32M3 development board, an I-jet Lite debug probe and several example projects. The kit can be used to evaluate the tools and the included R-IN32M3 microcontroller.
IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM is a complete and high-performance development toolchain including the highly-optimising IAR C/C++ Compiler and the feature-rich C-SPY Debugger in a user-friendly integrated development environment. It offers the world’s broadest support for Renesas microcontrollers, including the low-power ARM Cortex-M R-IN32M3 device.
The R-IN32M3 is tailored for industrial networking applications. It significantly improves industrial Ethernet network performance with optimised hardware accelerators, while reducing costs by supporting multiple protocols such as EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, CANopen and more, from a single device. It can be used for real-time network communication in gateways, I/O controllers, PLCs/PACs, embedded controllers, industrial drives and countless other networked applications. Its design flexibility allows one system design to serve a diversity of networks and applications.
