More than one hundred ARM Cortex-M Enterprise Agreements signed during the last year
ARM TechCon, Santa Clara, CA—October 30, 2013—IAR Systems® confirms today that the company is the market-leading supplier of embedded development tools for microcontrollers based on the popular ARM® Cortex™-M cores. More customers than ever choose to work with the powerful development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench® and during the last year, over one hundred ARM Cortex-M customers have signed Enterprise Agreements. Many of these customers choose to standardize their embedded development on IAR Systems’ tools, gaining unique flexibility with seamlessly integrated workflows and simplified license management.
The reason behind the decision to go with IAR Systems’ tools is most often the excellent width in the number of microcontrollers supported, combined with the practical features of the products and the industry-leading performance. The performance is proven in benchmarks, including record-breaking results for microcontrollers based on ARM Cortex-M0,-M0+, -M3 and -M4 on the EEMBC® CoreMark® test suite. Numerous user-friendly features and integrations with supplementary tools from IAR Systems’ partners create an easy-to-use, powerful development environment. The incorporated C-SPY® Debugger includes comprehensive functionality such as performance profiling, stack analysis and power profiling. It is complemented by a range of integrated probes for in-circuit debugging and trace.
A quick start is aided through thousands of example projects available directly in the tools and the tools are compliant with ARM Embedded Application Binary Interface (EABI) and ARM CMSIS (Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard). In addition to this solid technology, IAR Systems provides professional world-wide technical support and the technical training program IAR Academy™.
