IAR: optimized development tools for new low-power, multi-market MCUs from NXP
IAR Systems announces tool support for NXP Semiconductor’s recently launched LPC5411x family, a series of low-power, multi-market MCUs. IAR Systems is able to provide early support in the complete C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM, giving developers access to one single toolbox in which all components integrate seamlessly.
The LPC5411x MCU family is an ARM Cortex-M4-based expansion of NXP’s LPC MCU portfolio. The product family provides a good balance between power efficiency and feature integration for applications that require low-power, always-on processing. Target applications include gaming, USB accessories, healthcare devices, patient monitoring, Internet of Things, as well as building automation.
IAR Embedded Workbench and the included IAR C/C++ Compiler generates very fast performing code. With the shortest possible execution times, it is the ultimate choice for development of low-power applications. To enable extensive debugging and profiling possibilities, the toolchain includes features such as complex code and data breakpoints, runtime stack analysis, call stack visualization, code coverage analysis and integrated monitoring of power consumption. Through add-on tools for static analysis and runtime analysis, developers can gain complete code control.
IAR Embedded Workbench offers the broadest MCU support in the industry, covering over 10,000 devices of which 4,300 are ARM devices.
