IAR Systems provides tools for new Atmel MPU series targeting industrial IoT and wearable applications

IAR Systems announces that the world-leading development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM now supports the Atmel SMART SAMA5D2 series. With its highly optimising build tools and comprehensive debugging capabilities, IAR Embedded Workbench enables developers to fully leverage the high performance of the new series.

The Atmel SMART SAMA5D2 series is based on the high-end ARM Cortex – A5 core and features an ARM NEON engine. ARM NEON is a Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) architecture extension providing the top performance that is crucial to developers working for example with multimedia and signal processing applications. Using IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM, developers are able to fully benefit from this technology thanks to the automatic NEON vectorisation available in the tools. By vectorising their code, developers can achieve faster application response time, improve application battery lifetime and further meet the market demands for low cost and low power.

Atmel LogoThe new SAMA5D2 includes a robust security system including ARM TrustZone technology, along with secure boot, hardware cryptography, RSA/ECC, on-the-fly encryption/decryption on double-data-rate(DDR) and Quad Serial Peripheral Interface (QSPI) memories, tamper resistance, memory scrambling, independent watchdog, temperature, voltage and frequency monitoring and a unique ID in each device.

The complete development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM features the powerful IAR C/C++ Compiler and the comprehensive C-SPY Debugger in a user-friendly integrated development environment. The toolchain provides extensive debugging and profiling possibilities such as complex code and data breakpoints, runtime stack analysis, call stack visualisation, code coverage analysis and integrated monitoring of power consumption. For complete code control, IAR Systems provides integrated add-on tools for static and runtime analysis.

Jacko Wilbrink, senior director of MPUs, Atmel Corporation said: “We are excited to see early support for our latest low-power MPUs in IAR Systems, leading development toolchain. In order to be able to develop next-generation industrial IoT and wearables applications, developers require more performance, lower power and additional security. The Atmel SMART SAMA5D2 series and IAR Embedded Workbench deliver excellent performance and a wide range of features to fulfill these requirements and deliver truly differentiating products to help bring products faster to market.”
