IAR Systems will provide early support for the new STMicroelectronics’ STM32L5 series in IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm. Built on Arm TrustZone technology for hardware-based security, the STM32L5 series adds further functionality including flexible software isolation, secure boot, key storage, and hardware cryptographic accelerators. In addition, the series provides ultra-low-power technology enabling long run times powered by coin cells or energy harvesting.
IAR Embedded Workbench is the leading development toolchain for Arm Cortex-M microcontrollers. Thanks to significant speed optimizations, the included IAR C/C++ Compiler™ generates very fast and efficient code. With the shortest possible execution times, it is the ultimate choice for development of high-performance, low-power applications. Using IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm, developers can leverage the toolchain’s advanced code optimization techniques and power debugging functionality to make sure the application is fast, efficient and highly compact. In addition, integrated static and runtime code analysis tools enable them to ensure the quality of their code. The STM32L5 series, as well as support in IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm, will be available in Q2 2019.
