UPPSALA, Sweden -- March 22, 2013

Today, IAR Systems® releases a suite of tools for developing embedded
applications based on Renesas Electronics’ new RH850 core. IAR Embedded
Workbench® for RH850 includes user-friendly features and powerful
optimizations that enable developers to fully benefit from the high
performance offered by the new RH850 core.

The RH850 microcontrollers are targeted for automotive applications and are
the industry’s first with embedded 40nm flash technology. The series addresses
functional safety and security requirements, while combining high performance
and low power consumption. It offers features such as ultra-low power, high
temperature tolerance, multi-core technology and compliance with the
standardized automotive software architecture AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System
ARchitecture).

IAR Embedded Workbench for RH850 provides a complete set of development tools,
with build tools and the comprehensive C-SPY® Debugger incorporated in a
user-friendly integrated development environment with a feature-rich text
editor and source browser. Tapping into the success of IAR Systems’
well-proven tools for Renesas V850, IAR Embedded Workbench for RH850 brings
architecture-specific adaptations and optimizations for the RH850
architecture. One of the focal points during development has been to maximize
the code performance and the IAR C/C++ Compiler™ for RH850 generates very
compact, extremely fast-performing code by applying several levels of generic
and processor-specific optimizations.

The tools are well tested and comply with industry standards. They use the
standard ELF/DWARF object format, and are compliant with Renesas ABI
(Application Binary Interface), which gives users the possibility to
incorporate libraries created with other Renesas ABI-compliant software tools.
Integrated automatic checking of MISRA-C rules helps ensure the safety and
reliability of the applications designed. The C-SPY Debugger supports Renesas
E1/E20 emulators, as well as kernel-aware debugging with built-in plugins for
a large number of real-time operating systems (RTOSes).

Thanks to its strong partnership with Renesas Electronics Corporation, IAR
Systems is the only tool vendor that provides high-performance development
tools for all Renesas architectures, in total more than 4000 devices. In a
common user-friendly environment, IAR Systems’ customers can move freely
within the entire line-up of Renesas microcontrollers.
