UPPSALA, Sweden -- July 3, 2013

Today, IAR Systems® (STO:IARB)announces development tools support for the
ultra-low power SAM D20 microcontroller series from Atmel Corporation. Support
is available using the high-performance tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench® for
ARM®, which features highly optimizing build tools and comprehensive debugging
capabilities, including innovative Power Debugging technology.

Atmel’s SAM D20 series is based on the low-power ARM Cortex™-M0+ core and
integrates features such as high-precision 12-bit analog and internal
oscillators, up to eight 16-bit timer/counters, real-time performance,
peripheral event system, and flexible clocking options and sleep modes. The
series are designed for use in home automation, consumer, smart metering and
industrial applications.

The complete development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM includes the
IAR C/C++ Compiler™, assembler, linker, librarian, text editor, project
manager, and C-SPY® Debugger in a user-friendly integrated development
environment. The toolchain provides highly optimizing build tools and
extensive debugging and analysis possibilities such as complex code and data
breakpoints, runtime stack analysis, call stack visualization, code coverage
analysis and integrated monitoring of power consumption. Added by the recently
released version 6.60 is support for IAR Systems’ I-scope™ probe, which is
used together with the in-circuit debugging probe I-jet™ and adds capabilities
for current and voltage measurements. The measurements supply developers with
knowledge about the power consumed by individual modules and allow them to
optimize their applications for power consumption, hereby making full use of
the energy-efficient features of the SAM D20 series.

“Atmel and IAR Systems are long-time partners and we are glad to gain early
support for our SAM D20 series in the powerful toolchain IAR Embedded
Workbench,” said Joerg Bertholdt, Director of Tools and Software, Atmel
Corporation. “The new series adds to our broad portfolio, ranging from 8-bit
AVR MCUs to high-end Cortex-A5 MPUs. Our customers can trust IAR Systems to
provide world-leading tools for our complete range of rich-peripheral,
ultra-low-power MCUs.”

Support for the SAM D20 family is available using IAR Embedded Workbench for
ARM, version 6.60 and later. More information about the tools, and free
evaluation licenses, are available at www.iar.com/ewarm.
