We have just announced the extension of our partnership with IAR Systems have to include over 1,400 new example projects in IAR Systems’ development tools to support Atmel’s entire portfolio of world-class MCUs and MPUs.
Designers using both Atmel AVR and Atmel | SMART family can now leverage IAR Embedded Workbench, the leading C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain, with new example projects to bring their products faster to market. With all the information available to a developer at the start of a project, including over 1,400 new examples from the Atmel Software Framework (ASF) for reference designs across a broad range of applications and Atmel’s Xplained Pro family of evaluation boards, this significantly increases developers’ productivity.
ASF is a large library of free source code for Atmel | SMART ARM and highly-popular AVR devices. This framework minimizes much of the low-level configuration and design required for projects to get off the ground, by providing hardware abstraction with consistent APIs, as well as high-value middleware components designed for evaluation, prototyping, design, and production phases.
“We are committed to providing simple, yet sophisticated tools for our designers’ complex development,” said Steve Pancoast, Atmel Vice President of Development Software and Tools. “Since the introduction of our AVRs in the early 90s, IAR Systems has always been an important partner for us, providing world class tools to our most demanding users. The integration of our reference application examples into IAR Embedded Workbench will reduce overall time-to-market for developers, enabling them to bring products faster to market.”
“High-performance development tools are critical for success in today’s advanced embedded systems designs, specifically for the Internet of Things and connectivity markets,” added Stefan Skarin, IAR Systems CEO. “IAR Systems’ position is unique in that we are the only commercial vendor able to provide this, as well as our world class support, across Atmel’s entire range of microcontroller architectures.”
