IAR Systems updates development tools for RISC-V
Support for new technology enabled by strong partnership with Andes Technology Corporation
Stockholm, Sweden—June 4, 2020— IAR Systems today announces initial support for the draft RISC-V P extension in its powerful development tools IAR Embedded Workbench for RISC-V. Thanks to this early support for the extension as implemented by Andes Technology, a Premier Founding member of RISC-V International, developers are able to take advantage of a leading development toolchain when starting to develop applications based on the new RISC-V core extension.
“Andes is a strong and active player in the RISC-V community, and together we have a lot to offer with regards to performance,” says Anders Holmberg, General Manager Embedded Development Tools, IAR Systems. “By jointly supporting the P extension, we bring extended possibilities for powerful RISC-V development and add new ways to optimize application and hardware performance.”
RISC-V is a free and open instruction set architecture (ISA) based on established Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC) principles. In 2019, IAR Systems launched development tools for RISC-V. More information about the development tools is available at www.iar.com/riscv.
