SoC alliances

SoC alliances

We work together with SoC suppliers to leverage technology and services for the benefit of our joint customers.

Developing a SoC platform or representing a SoC vendor?

Stay ahead of competition by working with us to design a powerful platform. Your SoC system deserves the best tools, and so does your customers.

During the early integration phase of your SoC system, you need to verify the functionality of each component and sub-system peripherals, in addition to build reliable debug connectivity. Also important for most SoC designers is to be able to fit the highest amount of IP and application code on the MCU, a task that, can be achieved by ensuring maximum optimization of the code. IAR Embedded Workbench provides a comprehensive solution with outstanding performance enabling SoC designers to focus on what is important to them.

By forming a strategic alliance with us, you can:

  • Reduce the cost of supporting a toolchain
  • Enhance customer experiences throughout the evaluation, prototyping and production phases
  • Enable your customers to easily evaluate your SoC in minutes upon activating their license of IAR Embedded Workbench
  • Provide worldwide technical support only a phone call or email away, to your customers
