IAR Systems extends development tools offering with a special edition for the smallest ARM cores
STOCKHOLM --(Business Wire)--
Today IAR Systems® announced the availability of a new edition of the
development tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench®, tailored for the small
ARM (News - Alert)® Cortex™-M0 and ARM Cortex-M0+ cores. The ARM Cortex-M0 edition of
IAR Embedded Workbench targets developers working with MCUs based on
these very small and energy-efficient cores, and is offered at a
considerably reduced price from that of the full version which supports
all ARM cores.
Based on the full edition of the recently announced version 6.50 of IAR
Embedded Workbench for ARM, support for this special edition is limited
to the development of MCUs based on ARM Cortex-M0, Cortex-M0+ and
Cortex-M1 cores. During the last year, IAR Systems has added a
comprehensive list of new features to its world-leading development tool
suite, including a new source browser, an enhanced text editor, and
stack usage analysis functionality. In addition, enhancements to the
optimization technology in the powerful IAR C/C++ Compiler™ result in
outstanding code execution speed.
The ARM Cortex-M family is optimized for cos and power sensitive
applications such as smart metering, human interface devices, automotive
and industrial control systems, white goods, consumer products and
medical instrumentation. The ARM Cortex-M0 and Cortex-M0+ processor
families are developed to be physically small with low power consumption
and minimal code size, with the ambition to supply developers with
32-bit performance at an 8-bit price point.
Customers who opt for the ARM Cortex-M0 edition of IAR Embedded
Workbench will have an easy migration upgrade path to a full edition
with complete support for all ARM Cortex-M/R/A cores.
