IAR Systems tools improve software performance for STM32 ARM Cortex-M4 family from STMicroelectronics

Uppsala, Sweden—September 27, 2011— IAR Systems today announced full tool support for all devices in the STM32 F4 family of ARM Cortex-M4 based microcontrollers, recently launched by STMicroelectronics. Intelligent compiler optimizations and integration of the CMSIS DSP library in IAR Embedded Workbench enhances software performance to the outstanding control functionality and high-efficiency signal-processing capabilities found in the STM32 F4.

IAR Embedded Workbench is used for developing, building, and debugging embedded applications with tough requirements on performance and reliability. It is the world’s most widely used tool chain for ARM-based microcontrollers.

"The STM32 F4 microcontroller family represents a significant step forward in delivering control and signal-processing performance. Our customers expect development tools that allow them to take full advantage of the true potential of the device and the IAR Embedded Workbench helps them do that, " said Michel Buffa, General Manager, Microcontroller Division at STMicroelectronics.
