IAR Systems provides unmatched complete support for ARM Cortex cores
Uppsala, Sweden—June 11, 2012—IAR Systems® announces that its powerful C/C++ compiler and debugger tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench® for ARM® provides the world’s broadest support for the complete range of ARM Cortex™ cores.
IAR Systems supplies development tools for more ARM devices than any other embedded development tools vendor, offering its customers the opportunity to standardize their development environment. The offer is now strengthened even further with support for five additional cores. The latest additions include the energy-efficient ARM Cortex-M0+ core, and the high-end cores ARM Cortex-R5, ARM Cortex-R7, ARM Cortex-A7, and ARM Cortex-A15. This means that IAR Embedded Workbench continues to support the entire range of ARM Cortex cores available, from the low-power M-series, to the real-time R-series and the high-performing A-series.
The unmatched offer provides customers of IAR Systems with unique possibilities to freely choose among a large number of MCUs based on any ARM Cortex core, from all major manufacturers. They hereby gain the flexibility to always use the device best suited for their current needs, while being able to reuse code across projects and save cost for training, maintenance, and license management, improving efficiency and reducing time to market for new products.
“We see a growing adaptation of the standardization concept among our customers.” says Stefan Skarin, CEO, IAR Systems. “A lot of them are taking advantage of the unique possibilities that come with being able to use one and the same toolchain for a wide range of MCUs based on any of the ARM Cortex cores.”
