Green Innovation Program

Sponsor program for innovative technology

“IAR Green Innovation Program has helped us to speed up our development in a phase where we needed it most,” says Jakob Gärtner, founder of Local Energy Appliances.

Many of the most innovative advances in renewable energy and clean-tech fields over the past twenty years have been developed by small, entrepreneurial technology companies and individuals. To support and further this progress, IAR Systems has created IAR Green Innovation Program to allow engineers and scientists easier access to the world’s most powerful embedded systems development tools. By significantly enhancing development productivity, IAR Systems software helps green entrepreneurs bring their ideas from prototype to commercialization stages and provides a reliable path to high volume deployment.

IAR Green Innovation Program will provide selected organizations up to $25,000 worth of IAR Embedded Workbench or IAR visualSTATE licenses for the duration of the project.

IAR Embedded Workbench is a high-performance C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain for applications based on 8-, 16-, and 32-bit microcontrollers. IAR Systems collaborates with all of the leading silicon vendors worldwide to ensure that our software supports more devices in more processor architectures than any other tool on the market.

IAR visualSTATE is a set of highly sophisticated and easy-to-use development tools for designing, testing and implementing embedded applications based on state machines.
