IAR Systems launched version 6.5 of the IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM. The latest version includes expanded integration and new functionality. In addition, enhancements to the optimization technology in the powerful IAR C/C++ Compiler result in even faster code execution. The new version of the embedded workbench tool also includes a new License Management System (LMS) that adds features such as commuter licenses, automatic license activation and support for virtual servers. The new LMS makes it easy for customers to administer and manage licenses.
The LDRA tool suite has integrated with IAR Embedded Workbench for the PIC18, AVR, AVR32, and MSP430 microcontrollers. IAR Embedded Workbench provides full ANSI C compliance, support for embedded C++, and host-controlled I/O facilities. LDRA leverages the capabilities to add static analysis, code coverage to Modified Condition/Decision Coverage (MC/DC), and requirement traceability on these resource-constrained footprints.
