IAR Systems delivers embedded software building on Linux

IAR Systems has announced that its portfolio of embedded development tools has been extended with build tools supporting implementation in Linux-based frameworks for automated application build and test processes.

Through the C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench, IAR provides its customers with diverse microcontroller support as well as adapted licensing options to fit different organisations' needs. It has now extend that flexibility to the build environment as tools in IAR Embedded Workbench now support Linux.

These tools offer leading code quality, optimisations for size and speed, and fast build times. Supporting implementation in Linux-based frameworks for automated application build and test processes, the tools will enable large-scale deployments of critical software building and testing and are suitable for installations ranging from a few licenses on a small build server, to massive installations with several hundreds of parallel builds active at the same time.

“We are seeing increasing needs among our customers to use our build tools for large-scale deployments of critical software building and testing in infrastructures based on Linux,” commented Anders Holmberg, General Manager Embedded Development Tools, IAR Systems. “Some of the world’s largest corporations as well as tens of thousands of small and mid-sized companies trust us to provide the tools they need when they need them, and we are happy to now provide extended possibilities for automated building and testing. We now take the well-known build tools from IAR Embedded Workbench and make them available on Linux with the same world-leading performance.”

Streamlined development and testing help to optimise resources with regards to time spent developing and testing as well as license management and server utilization. By standardising on flexible and high-performance development tools, companies will be able to benefit from improved license and cost management while improving collaboration and enhancing productivity.

The build tools for Linux include the highly optimising IAR C/C++ Compiler, IAR Assembler, Linker and library tools, and runtime libraries. The tools are validated to run on the Ubuntu Linux distribution version 18.04.3 and later, and currently supports Arm and Renesas RH850.

The IAR C/C++ Compiler adheres to a freestanding implementation of the C18 (ISO/IEC 9899:2018) programming language standard and supports all C++17 features. In addition, C++14 (ISO/IEC 14882:2015), C11 (ISO/IEC 9899:2012), C89 (ANSI X3.159-1989) and the IEEE 754 standard for floating-point arithmetic are supported.
