  IAR Systems: Latest IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM Offers New Functionality
  and Compiler Optimizations

Business Wire

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- October 30, 2012

IAR Systems® today announced a new version of its world-leading development
tool suite, IAR Embedded Workbench® for ARM® version 6.50. The new version
adds expanded integration and new functionality. In addition, enhancements to
the optimization technology in the powerful IAR C/C++ Compiler result in even
faster code execution.

To make it easy for developers to use device configuration tools alongside IAR
Embedded Workbench, IAR Systems has implemented new functionality for adding
project connections. Automated integration with Freescale’s Processor Expert
Software, Infineon’s DAVE™ code generator, and other device configuration
tools enables developers to import files or file packages generated by the
tools. IAR Embedded Workbench automatically detects changes in the generated
file set.

Providing fast and compact code, the IAR C/C++ Compiler performs multiple
levels of optimizations for code size and execution speed, such as loop
unrolling and function inlining. The operations performed are global as well
as core- and target-specific. By further advancing its compiler technology,
IAR Systems has improved the already outstanding results of industry-standard
benchmarks by more than 10 percent.

A new display of source browser call graph enables developers to easily
navigate through the function call hierarchy. Developers can choose to display
all possible calls to or from a selected function with the calls listed in a
dedicated Call Graph window. This added functionality provides a good overview
of function calls, making it easier to see the relationships between different
parts of the application.

In addition, the latest version includes a new License Management System (LMS)
that adds features such as commuter licenses, automatic license activation and
support for virtual servers. The new LMS makes it easy for customers to
administer and manage licenses.
