  78K Microcontrollers

Proven commitment to supply high-performing tools for the entire range of
Renesas devices

Business Wire

ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. -- October 22, 2012

IAR Systems® today announced new user-friendly functionality in its
development tools for Renesas Electronics Corporation’s R32C and 78K
microcontrollers. The updates include a new editor and source browser, which
enables features such as auto-completion, code folding, block selection, block
indentation, bracket matching, and zooming.

The latest version of IAR Embedded Workbench® for R32C also adds integration
with the version control system Subversion. The integration allows users to
perform Subversion commands from within the IAR Embedded Workbench IDE, and to
see the current status of project files and folders. The availability of
integrated version control systems within the IDE can greatly simplify the
development process by enabling developers to share files in a project and
keep track of source code versions.

IAR Systems is the tool vendor of choice for many Renesas developers. In
total, the company’s development tools support more than 4,000 Renesas
devices. By offering high-class tools for the entire line-up of Renesas
microcontroller families, IAR Systems proves its commitment to supply
world-leading tools for developers working with the wide range of
microcontrollers available from Renesas. By standardizing on IAR Embedded
Workbench, IAR Systems’ customers are able to reuse code across projects,
reduce costs for training, maintenance, and managing of licenses and vastly
improve efficiency and time to market for new products. It also simplifies
migration when moving between different product families.

For the extensive 78K family, IAR Embedded Workbench offers full support for
78K0, 78K0S and 78K0R products. IAR Embedded Workbench for R32C provides full
support for devices in the series. The comprehensive support offered by IAR
Embedded Workbench also includes the SH, V850, M16C, R8C, RL78 and RX
families, as well as the upcoming RH850 microcontrollers for automotive
applications.

Included with both releases is a new C-SPY® Debugging Guide, in addition to a
new licensing management system that adds such features as commuter licenses,
automatic license activation and support for virtual servers.

IAR Embedded Workbench is a complete set of development tools for embedded
applications. It features a powerful C/C++ compiler and comprehensive debugger
in a user-friendly integrated development environment (IDE).

Workbench will soon be available for download:
