IAR Systems announces support for the newly released SmartFusion2 product family from Microsemi Corporation. The tools by IAR includes C/C++ development tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM.
Microsemi’s SmartFusion2 target safety-critical and mission-critical systems in industrial, aviation, defense and communications applications. SmartFusion2 integrates inherently reliable flash-based FPGA fabric, a 166 megahertz (MHz) ARM Cortex-M3 processor, advanced security processing accelerators, DSP blocks, SRAM, eNVM and industry-required high-performance communication interfaces all on a single chip.
“We are excited that our customers can benefit from using the high-performance compiler and debugger tools provided by IAR Systems,” says Jim Davis, vice president of software & systems engineering at Microsemi. “In addition to advanced security capabilities, our SmartFusion2 Soc FPGA devices also feature low power consumption without sacrificing performance. Microsemi’s Libero SoC software toolset for SmartFusion2 fully integrates IAR Embedded Workbench for application development, providing a powerful and user-friendly full set of tools.”
“We have been fortunate to work with Microsemi for many years, and support for SmartFusion2 strengthens our position in the FPGA domain,” says Mats Ullström, Director of Products and Services, IAR Systems. “By using IAR Systems’ tools for compiling and debugging, developers working with SmartFusion2 will be able to fully leverage Microsemi’s advanced technology.”
