"The compiler and the other parts in IAR Embedded Workbench are proven over a number of years to be of a high quality covering a wide range of micro controllers."
Landis+Gyr is the largest global player in smart metering. The company offers meters and solutions that empower utilities and end-customers around the world to improve their energy efficiency, reduce their energy costs and contribute to a sustainable use of resources. Since several years, the company is a customer of IAR Systems.
Landis+Gyr was founded in 1896, and is an independent growth platform of the Toshiba Corporation (TKY: 6502) and 40% owned by the Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (INCJ). As a long-standing customer of IAR Systems, Landis+Gyr has been using IAR Embedded Workbench in several development projects during many years. Ian McNutt, Global Head of R&D Industrial and Grid Metering, Smart Grid and Load Management at Landis+Gyr, comments:
The compiler and the other parts in IAR Embedded Workbench are proven over a number of years to be of a high quality covering a wide range of micro controllers from several processor manufacturers. The combination of the tools and the flexible licensing model and support provided by IAR Systems completes the package for us.
During 2015, Landis+Gyr started using the code analysis tool C-STAT:
The main reason for us when we chose to start using C-STAT was that we are always striving to improve the quality of our products. When firmware is becoming more and more complex, we need tools which can help us find bugs early in the development process in order to reduce time to market and development costs, and improve the final product quality. C-STAT provides a good balance between tool cost and the available features.
C-STAT is being used on six sites within Landis+Gyr:
C-STAT is easy to integrate into our development process and quickly indicates where errors or potential problems exist in the code. Our Software Engineers using the tool were soon won over and now see a clear benefit of using the tool in the product development.
