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.
IAR Embedded Workbench is a set of highly sophisticated and easy-to-use development tools for embedded applications. It integrates the IAR C/C++ Compiler, assembler, linker, librarian, text editor, project manager, and C-SPY Debugger in an integrated development environment (IDE). With its built-in chip-specific code optimizer, IAR Embedded Workbench generates very efficient and reliable FLASH/PROMable code for the Renesas M16C and R8C MCU. In addition to this solid technology, IAR Systems also provides professional worldwide technical support.
What's new in IAR Embedded Workbench for M16C & R8C version 3.70.1:
- External analyzers
A flexible mechanism to invoke external analyzers for project files. This is typically used as an interface to static analysis tools like PC-lint.
- Custom argument variables
Custom argument variables can be used in the IAR Embedded Workbench IDE whenever there is a need for a macro-like expansion that depends on the current context. This could for example be in arguments to an external build tool.
- New windows for C-SPY macros
Two new C-SPY windows have been added to easier manage C-SPY macros. The Macro Registration window controls which macro files are loaded and the Debugger Macros window shows a list of all macros available in the debugger.
- Saving C-SPY Watch window content
In the C-SPY Watch window family, it is now possible to save current window contents to a text file with a new Save All To File entry in the context menu
