IAR Systems has partnered up with the semiconductor IP provider CAST Inc. to offer new possibilities for developers working with 8051-based applications. With the recently introduced version 9.10 IAR Embedded Workbench for 8051, complete tool support for CAST’s 8051 microcontrollers is available.
CAST helped pioneer 8051 intellectual property in 1999. IAR Embedded Workbench for 8051 is a complete set of development tools for microcontrollers based on the 8051 core.
For simplified development workflows, the tools feature integrations for a range of hardware debug systems and device configuration tools. IAR Systems has in cooperation with CAST developed a plugin for the C-SPY Debugger in IAR Embedded Workbench with support for CAST’s native on-chip debug package.
