IAR Systems has launched the Baseline edition for small applications development using IAR Embedded Workbench for RX. The new edition is targeted at developers working with smaller memory Renesas RX 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 is offering the new edition alongside the latest version of IAR Embedded Workbench for RX, version 2.41.
More than half of the Renesas low-power 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. To see the memory size of specific devices, visit www.renesas.com/rx.
IAR Embedded Workbench for RX supports all RX devices. The highly optimized code created by version 2.41 together with the RX core achieve 3.12 CoreMarks/MHz, which the company claims is a world-record benchmark score. The new version also adds 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.
