UPPSALA, Sweden -- June 4, 2013

Today, IAR Systems® launches a new version of its high-performance development
tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench® for V850. In addition to improved
optimizations and updated device support, version 4.10 adds plenty of
user-friendly functionality. Further, the IAR C/C++ Compiler™ for V850 now
supports the ISO/IEC 9899:1999 standard, known as C99.

Version 4.10 also adds IAR Systems’ new text editor and source browser. The
new text editor include features such as auto-completion, parameter hints,
code folding, block select, block indent, bracket matching, zoom and
word/paragraph navigation, while the new source browser adds features like Go
to Declaration and Find All References to symbols. A browsable Call Graph
window enables users to easily navigate through the function call hierarchy,
displaying all calls made to and from each function from any source file in
the active project. Users can choose to display all possible calls to or from
a selected function, gaining a good overview of function calls and the
relationships between different parts of the application. To make it easy for
developers to use device configuration tools alongside IAR Embedded Workbench,
project connections are introduced.

Together with various code generation improvements, the floating point library
has been optimized for higher execution speed. The result for the Embedded
Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC®) CoreMark® benchmark suite is now
about 35 percent improved, compared with the previous version.

In the C-SPY® Debugger incorporated with IAR Embedded Workbench, Sampled
Graphs are now available. Users can specify variables for which data samples
should be collected and view the sampled data either in table format in the
Data Sample window or as graphs in the Sampled Graphs window. Also available
is a Custom SFR (special function register) window and a Macro Quicklaunch
window. The custom SFR window lets users define custom SFRs in C-SPY with
selectable access size and type. The Macro Quicklaunch window makes it
possible to evaluate expressions and to launch C-SPY macros. The return value
from the evaluated macro or expression is shown in a separate column and the
user can retrigger the evaluation at any given point.

IAR Systems provides support for the entire line-up of Renesas microcontroller
families in the world-leading development tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench.
The tool suite includes the highly-optimizing IAR C/C++ Compiler and build
tools and the comprehensive C-SPY Debugger incorporated into an easy-to-use
integrated development environment (IDE). Read more about IAR Embedded
Workbench for V850 and download free evaluation licenses at
