IAR Systems has released a suite of tools for developing embedded applications based on Renesas Electronics’ new RH850 series of automotive microcontrollers.
IAR says one of the focal points during development has been to maximize the code performance and the IAR C/C++ Compiler™ for RH850 generates very compact, extremely fast-performing code by applying several levels of generic and processor-specific optimizations.
The tools use the standard ELF/DWARF object format, and are compliant with Renesas ABI (Application Binary Interface). Integrated automatic checking of MISRA-C rules is also supported. The C-SPY Debugger supports Renesas E1/E20 emulators and kernel-aware debugging with built-in plugins for a large number of real-time operating systems (RTOSes).
