IAR Systems launches tools for developing powerful automotive applications based on Renesas’ RH850 core
Today, IAR Systems releases a suite of tools for developing embedded applications based on Renesas Electronics’ new RH850 core. IAR Embedded Workbench® for RH850 includes user-friendly features and powerful optimizations that enable developers to fully benefit from the high performance offered by the new RH850 core.The
IAR Embedded Workbench for RH850 provides a complete set of development tools, with build tools and the comprehensive C-SPY® Debugger incorporated in a user-friendly integrated development environment with a feature-rich text editor and source browser. Tapping into the success of IAR Systems’ well-proven tools for Renesas V850, IAR Embedded Workbench for RH850 brings architecture-specific adaptations and optimizations for the RH850 architecture. One of the focal points during development has been to maximize the code performance and the IAR C/C++ Compiler™ for RH850 generates very compact, extremely fast-performing code by applying several levels of generic and processor-specific optimizations.
The tools are well tested and comply with industry standards. They use the standard ELF/DWARF object format, and are compliant with Renesas ABI (Application Binary Interface), which gives users the possibility to incorporate libraries created with other Renesas ABI-compliant software tools. Integrated automatic checking of MISRA-C rules helps ensure the safety and reliability of the applications designed. The C-SPY Debugger supports Renesas E1/E20 emulators, as well as kernel-aware debugging with built-in plugins for a large number of real-time operating systems (RTOSes).
Thanks to its strong partnership with Renesas Electronics Corporation, IAR Systems is the only tool vendor that provides high-performance development tools for all Renesas architectures, in total more than 4000 devices. In a common user-friendly environment, IAR Systems’ customers can move freely within the entire line-up of Renesas microcontrollers.
