UPPSALA, Sweden -- February 21, 2013

Today, IAR Systems® announces comprehensive support for the XMC1000 family of
32-bit microcontrollers recently announced by Infineon Technologies. The
support is available using IAR Embedded Workbench® for ARM®, which is a
complete set of high-performance tools for embedded development.

The XMC1000 family is based on the ARM Cortex™-M0 core and features advanced
peripheral functions. It is designed for use in low-end, cost-critical
industrial applications, such as sensor and actuator applications, LED
lighting, digital power conversion and simple motor drives used in for example
household appliances, pumps, fans and e-bikes. The family offers on-chip flash
memory sizes from 8KB to 200KB, and is offered at an 8-bit price range.

“For a wide market acceptance of the XMC1000 family the tool support by IAR
Systems is an important step,” says Stephan Zizala, Senior Director Industrial
and Multimarket Microcontroller at Infineon Technologies AG. ”The XMC1000
microcontrollers deliver true 32-bit performance at 8-bit prices,
application-optimized peripherals and scalability with regard to the XMC4000
microcontroller family. The optimization capabilities of IAR Embedded
Workbench and its user-friendly and powerful environment enable users to fully
benefit from the features of the XMC1000 microcontrollers.”

By using IAR Embedded Workbench, developers can move freely between 8-, 16-
and 32-bit microcontrollers. They are able to improve efficiency and shorten
the time to market, reuse code across projects and reduce the costs for
training, maintenance, and managing of licenses.

IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM is a complete set of C/C++ compiler and
debugger tools. It features advanced smart functionality such as full
instruction trace, power profiling, function profiling, code coverage analysis
and stack usage analysis. Also included is an automated integration with
Infineon’s DAVE™ code generator, which enables developers to import files or
file packages generated by the tool.

licenses are available at www.iar.com/ewarm. Information on the XMC1000
microcontroller family of Infineon is available at www.infineon.com/xmc1000.
