IAR Build Tools for AVR
Our well-known build tools in IAR Embedded Workbench for AVR are available in frameworks built on Ubuntu, Red Hat or Windows. These tools offer leading code quality, outstanding optimizations for size and speed, and fast build times.
Complete build tools for AVR
The build tools include the IAR C/C++ Compiler, IAR Assembler, Linker and the command line build utility IARBuild for supporting cross platform-based frameworks for automated application build and test processes. The build tools enable large-scale deployments of critical software building and testing for automotive applications.
Flexible and high performance
Suitable for installations ranging from a few licenses on a small build server, to massive installations with several hundreds of parallel builds active at the same time.
Leading code optimizations
Complete set of build tools with leading optimization technology for creating compact and energy-efficient systems.
Modern, scalable workflows
Support for modern and scalable build server topologies on Ubuntu, Red Hat and Windows for CI/CD pipelines including Virtual Machines, Containers (Docker) and Self-hosted Runners.
On-demand training included
When you buy a license of IAR Build Tools for AVR, you get access to free training courses through our IAR Academy on Demand offering.
Enabled by IAR Build Tools
Today's development practices require automated processes to ensure quality, and to run builds and tests continuously. All changes, even minor ones, are merged back to the main branch or repository in a build server so they can be committed and validated in small steps to avoid the integration nightmare to guarantee that all pieces work together just before a release. Merges are done as often as possible or at least once a day.
Many companies are bringing this approach to the next level by adding automated release processes and deployment of the application at any time.
Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery
Build servers and build farms require flexible and high-performance environments. By using our build tools, you are able to use Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery in cross-platform environments natively or as virtual machines or containers with high performance. This allows you to focus on the source code and not worry about time-consuming manual tasks, while errors are caught automatically.
We are constantly updating and refining our tools with new features, new device support and extended capabilities.
Latest release: 8.10
A new AVR-specific linker is introduced with this release. It is based on the previous (generic) XLINK linker, but the new version can automatically select runtime libraries based on the object file attributes.
Support for the C18 and C++17 language standards
The compiler and libraries add support for the language standards known as C18 and C++17.
Additional GNU C language extensions
In extended language mode, the IAR C/C++ Compiler supports a number of new GCC-style operators, attributes, and expressions. See the compiler release notes for details.
The Unicode standard for consistent encoding, representation, and handling of text is now supported. This means that you can use Unicode characters (alphabetic, numeric, symbols, emoji, etc) in the source code.
The iarbuild command line build utility now supports:
- Generating a Ninja build file based on the IAR Embedded Workbench project format
- Generating a JSON description of the Embedded Workbench project
- More C-STAT reporting and configuration methods
Updated device support
The device support files have been updated to the most recent version from Microchip.
Updated user documentation
The user documentation has been updated to reflect the product changes.
Optimizing your resources
Streamlined development and test help optimize time spent developing and testing as well as license management and server utilization. Our build tools are suitable for installations ranging from a few licenses on a small build server, to massive installations with several hundreds of parallel builds active at the same time.
By standardizing on flexible and high performance development tools, companies can benefit from improved license and cost management while improving collaboration and enhancing productivity. For engineering teams and individual engineers, there is a lot to gain from having access to an uninterrupted workflow. In addition, we provide global technical support, and flexible training programs.
Standardize on future-proof tools and services and gain a robust,
flexible and complete platform for all aspects of embedded software
