UPPSALA, Sweden -- January 31, 2014

As being committed to supplying world-leading, high-class development tools
for all Renesas MCUs, IAR Systems® is today proud to announce a new version of
its complete embedded development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench® for
Renesas SuperH. This new edition provides several new features to boost ease
of use as well as improved optimizations, updated device support and example

To make the work for developers of SuperH-based applications easier and more
efficient, the text editor and the source browser has gained new functionality
in this version of IAR Embedded Workbench for SuperH. The text editor now
includes features such as auto-completion, parameter hints, code folding,
block select and indent, bracket matching, zoom and word/paragraph navigation.
New in the source browser is for example functionality for going directly to a
chosen declaration, and for finding all references to a symbol.

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. 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.

In addition, version 2.30 of IAR Embedded Workbench for SuperH introduces a
new license management system (LMS) that simplifies administration through
features like commuter licenses, automatic license activation and support for
virtual servers.

IAR Systems is the only tool vendor that is able to deliver high-performing
development tools for the entire line-up of Renesas MCUs. The new version adds
support for the latest SuperH devices together with various new example
projects. Read more about IAR Embedded Workbench for SuperH and download free
