IAR Systems introduces new product edition for small applications development

Dec 12, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- IAR Systems, a supplier of software tools for programming of chips in embedded systems, has introduced a new product edition tailored for small applications development using IAR Embedded Workbench for RX.

The Baseline edition is targeted at developers working with smaller memory Renesas RX microcontrollers, or MCUs, and is offered at a price substantially reduced from that of the full edition. The Baseline edition is limited to a code size of 256 KB but provides full compiler and debugger functionality. IAR Systems has announced the new edition alongside the latest version of IAR Embedded Workbench for RX, version 2.41.

According to the company, Renesas Electronics' RX family is available in a wide range of memory sizes. More than half of the RX200 devices fit into the 256 KB limit of the Baseline edition of IAR Embedded Workbench, and in addition a number of the high-performance RX600 devices are covered.

IAR Embedded Workbench for RX supports all RX devices. The new version adds improved functionality, including an extended inline assembler and a new Call Graph window displaying all calls made to and from each function from any source file in the active project, the company added.

"IAR Systems offer exceptionally powerful development tools for our RX series," said Ritesh Tyagi, Senior Director, Microcontroller Products & Solutions Marketing, Renesas Electronics America. "IAR Embedded Workbench is easy to use and offers one of the the best optimizations in the industry, providing faster performance and smaller code. Our RX family delivers up to 100MHz single cycle flash access and consumes only 350nA power in the Standby mode. In addition, it is designed for compact, fast performing code. With the new edition provided with the latest version of IAR Embedded Workbench, our multitude of customers working with small memory versions can benefit from this powerful combination at a very attractive price."
