IAR Systems Launches Full Support for Freescale® Vybrid Controller Solutions

  IAR Systems Launches Full Support for Freescale® Vybrid Controller Solutions

Business Wire

UPPSALA, Sweden -- July 10, 2013

Today, IAR Systems® launches support for the new Vybrid™ F series controller
solutions available from Freescale Semiconductor. Full support for the Vybrid
VF3xx, VF5xx, and VF6xx product families are provided using the development
tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench® for ARM®.

Vybrid controller solutions are built on an asymmetrical-multiprocessing
architecture using single or dual ARM cores, and are well suited for use in
many industrial applications. The entry-level single-core devices provide
low-power capabilities while the high-end dual-core processor units feature
highly integrated, heterogenous dual cores for applications requiring rich
human-machine interfaces and connectivity with real-time determinism.

IAR Embedded Workbench integrates the IAR C/C++ Compiler™, assembler, linker,
librarian, text editor, project manager, and C-SPY® Debugger in an integrated
development environment (IDE). Its powerful code optimization works on
multiple levels and creates highly efficient, reliable code for Vybrid
controller solutions. IAR Embedded Workbench is integrated with Freescale MQX
RTOS Software Solutions and the device configuration tool Freescale Processor
Expert® Software.

The C-SPY Debugger supports simultaneous debugging of the ARM Cortex™-A5 and
ARM Cortex-M4 cores. It provides full trace support through Embedded Trace
Macrocell (ETM), as well as support for Serial Wire Debug (SWD). By using IAR
Systems’ in-circuit debugging probe I-jet™, high-resolution Power Debugging is
available. This technology couples the source code to the power consumption,
letting users test and tune their applications for power optimization. The
Power Debugging capabilities can be extended further with I-scope™, which adds
current and voltage measurement capabilities. IAR Systems also provides
advanced trace probes for debugging, testing, and verification of high-end

The support for all devices includes header files, debugger register
definitions, flash loader, and example projects. Example projects for
Freescale MQX RTOS and the Freescale Tower™ System development platform for
Vybrid controllers are also included.
