  IAR Systems boosts functionality for STMicroelectronics’ STM8 tools

Business Wire

STOCKHOLM -- March 13, 2013

Today, IAR Systems® launches a new version of its world-leading development
tools for STMicroelectronics’ STM8. The new version 1.40 of IAR Embedded
Workbench® for STM8 adds user-friendly functionality in the form of a new text
editor and source browser, integration with the version control system
Subversion and new license management features. Also added is support for
additional devices and a new debugging guide.

IAR Systems’ new text editor is introduced, providing time-saving
functionality such as code completion, parameter hints, code folding, block
select and indent, bracket matching, zooming and word/paragraph navigation.
The new and improved source browser simplifies project navigation, for example
through functionality for going directly to a selected declaration, or finding
all references to a selected symbol.

A new C-SPY® Debugging Guide describes all you need to know on how to debug
using the C-SPY Simulator and the C-SPY Hardware Debugger drivers for ST-LINK
and STice. The release also includes major improvements to the hardware driver
for ST-LINK, ensuring debugging stability.

The complete development tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench is available for
developing embedded applications based on 8-, 16-, and 32-bit
microcontrollers. Migration between targets is made easy through the tools’
support for more than 20 architectures in a common feature-rich platform with
generic components. Transfer between different variants of IAR Embedded
Workbench is further simplified through IAR Systems’ new license management
system (LMS) which uses a single installer concept, and is now introduced in
IAR Embedded Workbench for STM8. The new LMS adds features like commuter
licenses, automatic license activation, and support for virtual servers.

“The demand for 8-bit microcontrollers is strong in the embedded industry and
we are selling more licenses of IAR Embedded Workbench for STM8 than ever
before,” says Fredrik Medin, Marketing Director, IAR Systems. “Having been a
part of the 8-bit community for 30 years, we provide a unique experience and
in-depth knowledge about compiling and debugging for 8-bit microcontrollers.
8-bit developers can trust us to continue to supply them with
high-performance, user-friendly development tools.”
