IAR Systems and VORAGO Technologies enable development of embedded systems in harsh environments

The complete C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench supports new ARM Cortex-M0 microcontrollers from VORAGO Technologies, targeting embedded applications with requirements for extreme temperature and radiation resistance

Uppsala, Sweden—October 11, 2016—IAR Systems®, provider of world-leading software tools for embedded development, is proud to announce support for the new ARM® Cortex®-M0 VA108x0 microcontrollers (MCUs) from VORAGO Technologies. Developers can now take advantage of the highly optimizing build tools and comprehensive debugging capabilities in IAR Embedded Workbench® to leverage the full potential of the VORAGO MCUs.

The VA108x0 MCUs from VORAGO Technologies are designed specifically for harsh environments with radiation and extreme temperature (-55˚ to 200˚C), in industries such as aerospace, automotive, industrial, oil and gas, and space. Based on VORAGO’s patented and proven HARDSIL® technology, the VA108x0 MCUs provide developers with robust embedded solutions that reduce development complexity and power consumption, while increasing reliability and longevity.

“Many of our customers have requested the possibility to use IAR Systems’ software tools in their development, and we are delighted that our MCUs are now supported in IAR Embedded Workbench”, says Ross Bannatyne, Marketing Director, VORAGO Technologies. “The combination of VORAGO’s extreme temperature and radiation resistant MCUs and the powerful toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench will enable companies to create many robust and high-reliable applications in the near future.”

IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM is a complete C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain for development of embedded systems, supporting over 4,800 ARM devices from a large number of semiconductor vendors. Thanks to its flexibility in use and powerful technology, developers can improve efficiency in their development projects and get their products to market faster. To meet different customers’ needs, the toolchain is available in several versions, including a functional safety version certified by TÜV SÜD according to the requirements of IEC 61508, ISO 26262 and EN 50128.

Support for VORAGO’s VA108x0 MCUs is available now in the latest version of IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM. More information about the tools and free trial versions are available at www.iar.com/iar-embedded-workbench/tools-for-arm.
