Build tools for Linux

Automated builds on Linux

Using leading build tools from IAR Embedded Workbench

Our well-known build tools in IAR Embedded Workbench have support for Linux. These tools offer leading code quality, outstanding optimizations for size and speed, and fast build times.

Supporting implementation in Linux-based frameworks for automated application build and test processes, the tools enable large-scale deployments of critical software building and testing.

Key features

  • Complete build tools, including: 
    - IAR C/C++ Compiler
    - IAR Assembler
    - Linker and library tools
    - The command line build utility IARBuild
    - Runtime libraries
  • Support for the static analysis tool C-STAT
  • Validated to run on the Ubuntu Linux distribution version 18.04.3 and later
  • Easy integration into different build systems, such as CMake or Ninja as well as continuous integration engines like Jenkins and Bamboo

Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery in an efficient way

Today's development practices require automated processes to ensure quality, and to run builds and tests continuously. All changes, even minor ones, are merged back to the main branch or repository in a build server so they can be committed and validated in small steps to avoid the integration nightmare to guarantee that all pieces work together just before a release. Merges are done as often as possible or at least once a day. Many companies are bringing this approach to the next level by adding automated release processes and deployment of the application at any time.

Build servers and build farms require flexible and high-performance environments. By using our build tools for Linux, you are able to use Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery in Linux environments natively or as virtual machines or containers with high performance. This allows you to focus on the source code and not worry about time-consuming manual tasks, while errors are caught automatically.

Optimizing your resources

Streamlined development and test help optimize time spent developing and testing as well as license management and server utilization. Our build tools 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.

By standardizing on flexible and high performance development tools, companies can benefit from improved license and cost management while improving collaboration and enhancing productivity. For engineering teams and individual engineers, there is a lot to gain from having access to an uninterrupted workflow. In addition, we provide global technical support, and flexible training programs.

Standardize on future-proof tools and services and gain a robust, flexible and complete platform for all aspects of embedded software development.

ISO/ANSI C/C++ compliance in the build tools

The IAR C/C++ Compiler adheres to a freestanding implementation of the following C programming language standards:

  • ISO/IEC 9899:2018, known as C18
  • ISO/IEC 14882:2015, known as C++14
  • ISO/IEC 9899:2012, known as C11
  • ANSI X3.159-1989, known as C89
  • IEEE 754 standard for floating-point arithmetic
