  IAR Systems Launches Updated Version of Tools for Renesas M16C and R8C

Version 3.60 adds improved text editor and source browser and new debugging
functionality

Business Wire

UPPSALA, Sweden -- June 26, 2013

Today, IAR Systems® releases a new version of its development toolchain IAR
Embedded Workbench® for Renesas M16C and R8C. Developers working with
microcontrollers based on these cores will now benefit from working with IAR
Systems’ new user-friendly editor and source browser, as well as several new
debugging features and integration with the version control system Subversion.

The text editor introduced in this version adds user-friendly features such as
auto-completion, parameter hints, code folding, block select and indent,
bracket matching, zoom and word/paragraph navigation. Available in the source
browser is for example functionality for going directly to a chosen
declaration, and for finding all references to a symbol.

Integration with the leading version control system Subversion makes it easier
for teams of developers to collaborate, share files in a project and keep
track of source code versions. The integration allows users to perform
Subversion commands from within the IAR Embedded Workbench IDE, and to see the
current status of project files and folders.

New in the comprehensive C-SPY® Debugger is the possibility to specify
variables for which you want to collect data samples. You can view the sampled
data either in table format in the Data Sample window or as graphs in the
Sampled Graphs window. It is also possible to define custom special function
registers (SFRs) with selectable access sizes and types. A new browsable Call
Graph window lets you display all calls made to and from each function from
any source file in the active project. You can also evaluate macro expressions
and launch macros from a new Macro Quicklaunch window. The return value from
the evaluated macro or expression is shown in a separate column and you can
retrigger the evaluation at any given point.

In addition, version 3.60 of IAR Embedded Workbench for M16C and R8C
introduces updated device support and a new license management system (LMS)
that simplifies administration through features like commuter licenses,
automatic license activation and support for virtual servers.
