IAR supports new i.MX RT chips

By Nick Flaherty www.flaherty.co.uk

IAR Systems has launched development tools for NXP's i.MX RT crossover processor, based on the Arm Cortex-M7 core. The support is available using the latest version of the complete C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm, providing embedded developers with everything they need in one single IDE.

NXP (which tool over Freescale Semiconductor where the i.MX families were developed) is currently being acquired by Qualcomm, although the deal is struggling to complete: Bombshell deal hits the embedded industry

The i.MX RT is aimed at smart and connected IoT products with the ease of use and real-time operation of traditional microcontrollers (MCUs). Targeted applications include audio subsystems, consumer and healthcare, home and building automation, industrial computing, motor control and power conversion. 

IAR's Embedded Workbench for Arm provides code optimizations and comprehensive debugging functions, as well as integrated code analysis tools. These enable developers to leverage the strong combined capabilities of the new chips.

"IAR Systems is the only independent tools vendor to enable development for embedded applications based on the new i.MX RT from NXP," says Anders Lundgren, Product Manager, IAR Systems. The workbench includes IAR's C/C++ Compiler as well as the C-SPY Debugger with a broad selection of smart features such as stack protection, complex code and data breakpoints, runtime stack analysis, call stack visualization, code coverage analysis and integrated power consumption monitoring. Integrated add-on tools for static analysis and runtime analysis are also available. 

IAR Systems also offers global support services and technical training in embedded programming.
