Renesas Synergy platform and IAR Systems tools aim to accelerate IoT and embedded product deployments
IAR Systems®, provider of embedded development tools, and Renesas Electronics Corp., a supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, have integrated the development tool chain IAR Embedded Workbench® within the Renesas Synergy™ Platform as “EWARM-RS”. The platform was shown at embedded world 2016, February 23-25, Nuremberg, Germany.
“Platform solutions are the way to go for the IoT and future embedded applications as they enable simplified development and quick return on investment. The Synergy Platform has a unique position in providing these values,” says Stefan Skarin, CEO, IAR Systems. “The embedded market is ready for a change, and as vendors we have to reach beyond our traditional product offerings by creating strong strategic alliances and provide high-quality, all-inclusive solutions that accelerate development of new innovative products. I am personally committed to make this journey towards the future of embedded development a true success.”
The Synergy Platform provides developers with immediate access to a complete embedded platform comprised of best-in-class RTOS and software, scalable ARM® Cortex®-M based microcontrollers (MCU), broad solutions, and now all the powerful features of the industry-leading development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench. Developers gain access to all these elements with a simple click-through licensing on the Synergy Gallery website. Since everything has been pre-integrated, tested, and qualified by Renesas as warranted in the Synergy Software Package (SSP), developers save months of work.
“Over the past two and a half decades, Renesas and IAR Systems have shared experience and knowledge to ensure optimised performance and quality for our mutual customers. Now we are entering an era of platform focus, and we are excited to have IAR Systems on board with the Synergy Platform,” says Ali Sebt, president, Renesas Electronics America, and SVP, Renesas Electronics Corporation. “IAR Systems is well-known for high-quality tools and expert competence in the embedded market. Thanks to our close cooperation around the Synergy Platform, we are able to offer a complete, qualified solution that enables developers to deliver innovative products to the market fast with a negligible up-front investment. For the price of just one Synergy MCU, or one million Synergy MCUs, developers gain immediate access to the entire platform which now includes IAR Embedded Workbench.”
The Synergy Platform includes a special edition of IAR Embedded Workbench only available within the platform. IAR Embedded Workbench is complete C/C++ compiler and debugger tool chain that offers sophisticated code optimisation technology in a feature-rich IDE. Included is also the static analysis tool C-STAT and the runtime analysis tool C-RUN. Synergy Platform customers are entitled to on-going IAR Embedded Workbench maintenance and technical support through Renesas, and there is no limit to the number of development seats within a given company holding a valid click-through license from the Synergy Gallery. The first beta version of the integrated tools was launched in June 2015 and has been tested by Renesas’ customers since October 2015. The full release of EWARM-RS is planned for June 2016.
