UPPSALA, Sweden -- June 05, 2012

Today, IAR Systems® (STO:IARB) announces a new version of its high-performing
development tool suite for Renesas RX microcontrollers. IAR Embedded
Workbench® for RX version 2.40 brings highly improved optimizations and also
introduces a new text editor and source browser.

Thanks to its best-in-class optimizations and user-friendly features, IAR
Embedded Workbench has proven to be the tool suite of choice for many Renesas
RX developers. This release further strengthens this offer by delivering even
higher performance and ease-of-use. The IAR C/C++ Compiler™ for RX has been
tuned to produce even better optimized code and the generated code is both
smaller in size, and substantially faster in execution. Initial tests show
more than 30 percent reduced execution times for industry standard test code,
compared to the previous version. Added to the compiler is also support for
the C++ feature Multiple inheritance.

The new version of IAR Embedded Workbench for RX also introduces a new text
editor and source browser that adds a large amount of user-friendly
functionality. New features include auto-completion, code folding, block
selection, block indenting, bracket matching, and zooming. Character encoding
support and word/paragraph navigation have also been improved compared to the
previous version.

Another new feature in version 2.40 is a C-SPY® start/stop function available
for the E1/E20 emulators. The start/stop function makes it possible to execute
specified routines of the user application immediately before starting and
immediately after halting program execution. Also added is the possibility to
define custom SFR's (special function registers) in C-SPY with selectable
access size and type.

The version also adds new license features such as commuter licenses,
automatic license activation and support for virtual servers, facilitating
license management for global customers.

With more than 4000 supported devices, IAR Systems together with Renesas
supplies exceptional design flexibility for embedded developers. The offer
stems from a longstanding relationship, which enables IAR Systems tools to
deliver outstanding performance for developers working with the extensive
Renesas product portfolio.

Evaluation versions of IAR Embedded Workbench for RX version 2.40 are
available at www.iar.com/ewrx.
