IAR Systems and Data I/O will be collaborating to deliver an integrated, modern workflow that will help developers and manufacturing professionals to make the transition of microcontroller firmware from development to manufacturing more efficient and improve quality for embedded designs. Up to now, the two companies have been part of separate stages of their customers' respective design and manufacturing processes. However, the growing complexity of embedded applications and the increasing quality and security concerns within the embedded market now drive a need to bridge that separation.
IAR Systems and Data I/O respond to this need by establishing a shared vision for a modern workflow connecting these key processes, easing the transition from development to manufacturing and enabling companies to establish modern, seamless workflows to ensure resource efficiency, fast time to market, and high quality.
As important as an integrated, modern workflow is for today's embedded designs, IAR Systems and Data I/O are convinced that the level of integration between development and manufacturing will become a hard requirement as companies start adding security to their designs. When device-specific security credentials such as keys and certificates are added, a modern, integrated workflow becomes a necessity. For these reasons, both companies are committed to integrate the appropriate processes and tools, reinforced by each company's worldwide network of support personnel, to bring strong benefits for its joint customers.
