UPPSALA, Sweden -- November 08, 2012

IAR Systems® (STO:IARB) has announced a new version of its compiler and
debugger development tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench® for 8051. Version 8.20
adds a new editor and source browser, Subversion integration and enhanced
debugger drivers.

By including a new text editor and source browser, IAR Systems simplifies code
writing and project management for 8051 developers. The new user-friendly
editor offers functionality such as auto completion, parameter hint, code
folding, block select, block indent, bracket matching, zooming and
word/paragraph navigation. The new source browser facilitates project
navigation via features such as Go to Declaration and Find All References.

With the version control system integrated into the IDE, developers can share
files in a project and keep track of source code versions. Version 8.20 of IAR
Embedded Workbench for 8051 includes integration with Subversion (SVN), one of
the most popular version control systems on the market. The development
process is greatly simplified for developers since they can now perform
Subversion commands from within the IAR Embedded Workbench IDE and see the
current status of project files and folders.

Updates made to the comprehensive C-SPY® Debugger add support for Special
Function Register (SFR) paging and banked xdata when working with 8051
microcontrollers from Silicon Laboratories. For Infineon devices with the DAS
interface, C-SPY now supports setting software breakpoints in the program
memory XRAM area.

In addition to these new features, the user guides IDE Project Management and
Building Guideand C-SPY Debugging Guidehave been updated, providing in-depth
information about the IAR Embedded Workbench IDE and the C-SPY Debugger. New
and updated device support files are also included. For a complete list of
