IAR Systems and Atmel Corporation have announced that the two companies have extended their partnership to include over 1,400 new example projects in IAR Systems’ development tools to support Atmel’s entire portfolio of MCUs and MPUs (microprocessors).
Designers using Atmel AVR and Atmel | SMART MCUs and MPUs can now leverage the IAR Embedded Workbench C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain with new example projects to bring their products to market faster. With all the information available to a developer at the start of a project, including over 1,400 new examples from the Atmel Software Framework (ASF) for reference designs across a broad range of applications, and Atmel’s Xplained Pro family of evaluation boards, this significantly increases developers’ productivity.
Atmel Software Framework (ASF) is a large library of free source code for Atmel | SMART ARM and AVR devices. ASF minimizes much of the low-level configuration and design required for projects to get off the ground, by providing hardware abstraction with consistent APIs, as well as high-value middleware components designed for evaluation, prototyping, design, and production phases.
IAR Embedded Workbench is a development toolchain for ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers. In addition to the IAR C/C++ Compiler, the tools include extensive debugging and analysis possibilities, and offer what the company states is the broadest device support in the industry covering more than 3,000 ARM devices.
Atmel’s 8- and 32-bit AVR MCUs deliver ease-of-use, low-power consumption and extremely high-levels of integration. Atmel’s AVR MCUs complement the Atmel | SMART portfolio of MCUs and MPUs, and are optimized to help designers bring their products faster to market. AVR MCUs offer the industry’s most code-efficient architecture for C and assembly programming along with more computing performance and better power efficiency.
Atmel | SMART ARM-based products deliver the platform for intelligent, connected devices in the era of IoT, wireless and energy efficiency. These solutions include embedded processing and connectivity—as well as software and tools, designed to make development faster and more cost-effective to bring the best-in-class products to market.
