Thingsquare selects development tools from IAR Systems for the Internet of Things

Embedded Conference Scandinavia, Stockholm, Sweden—October 2, 2012—Thingsquare, a pioneering provider of software connecting the physical world through the Internet, has selected IAR Embedded Workbench for developing its Thingsquare Mist connectivity platform for home and building automation, and for smart lighting. IAR Systems’ embedded software development tool chain gives Thingsquare and its customers the compact and highly efficient code that is fundamental when smart objects communicate with each other via the Internet. 

Thingsquare and its customers contribute to the growth of systems for smart homes, smart offices and smart cities, based on battery-operated systems and low-power Internet communication. Thingsquare Mist uses Contiki, the open source operating system for the Internet of Things, created by Thingsquare co-founder Adam Dunkels.

IAR Embedded Workbench is the world’s most widely used tool chain for 8-, 16-, and 32-bit MCUs, and is available for more than 7,400 devices. The highly-optimizing C/C++ compiler and debugger tool suite is a completely integrated development environment for developing, building, and debugging embedded applications with strong requirements on performance and reliability.

“IAR Embedded Workbench provides an easy-to-use, efficient and reliable tool chain,” says Fredrik Österlind, CTO at Thingsquare. “Many of our customers demand tools from IAR Systems for their development projects and we are very pleased to show that IAR Embedded Workbench provides excellent development tools for Thingsquare Mist-based solutions. As it supports such a huge and comprehensive bandwidth of devices suitable for smart systems, it will also help us to stay flexible in our hardware choice.”
