IAR Systems introduces support for 64-bit Arm cores

IAR Systems has announced that its C/C++ development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm is now able to support 64-bit Arm cores including Arm Cortex-A35, Cortex-A53 and Cortex-A55.

At a time when more applications are being based on 64-bit cores, specifically within low-power applications, deeply embedded and handheld devices, the Embedded Workbench provides customers with diverse microcontroller support as well as adapted licensing options to fit different organisations' needs

By supporting leading-edge designs needing the performance from 64-bit Arm cores, IAR Systems can enable its customers to make use of the toolchain’s optimisation technology also for 64-bit devices. In addition, integrated code analysis tools ensure code quality, and for simplified functional safety certification, a pre-certified version of the toolchain is available.

Complementing the highly optimising build tools, IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm also offers extensive debugging and analysis possibilities such as complex code and data breakpoints, runtime stack analysis, call stack visualization, code coverage analysis and integrated monitoring of power consumption.

The company’s I-jet debugging probes and the high-performance C-SPY Debugger 64-bit instruction set simulator offer further capabilities for seamless and flexible development workflows.

The toolchain enables multicore debugging of combined Cortex-A (32/64-bit), Cortex-R (32-bit) and Cortex-M (32-bit) devices and System-On-Chips (SoCs). IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm also provides pre-integrated software solutions from leading real-time operating systems (RTOS) and middleware vendors.

According to Stefan Skarin, CEO, IAR Systems, “Our customers need to have access to integrated, flexible solutions that provide advanced functionality without compromising performance or quality, and we are working with a number of lead customers who are early adopters of 64-bit devices in order to make their technology switch as smooth and efficient as possible, and enable them to develop next-generation embedded applications. Through this extended offering, we are building a development tools platform for the future, enabling our customers to both maximize their already made investments as well as prepare for innovations yet to come.”

The latest version of IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm delivers support for a number of different 64-bit processors, such as the NXP i.MX 8 series of application processors including the i.MX 8M, i.MX 8M Mini and i.MX 8M Nano products.
