IAR Build Tools for Linux for Renesas RX
Our well-known build tools in IAR Embedded Workbench for Renesas RX are available in a version supporting Linux. These tools offer leading code quality, outstanding optimizations for size and speed, and fast build times.
Builds in Linux-based environments
Complete build tools for Renesas RX, including IAR C/C++ Compiler, IAR Assembler, Linker and the command line build utility IARBuild for supporting Linux-based frameworks for automated application build and test processes. The build tools enable large-scale deployments of critical software building and testing for Human Machine Interface (HMI), Industrial Automation and Wireless Connectivity 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. By standardizing on flexible and high performance development tools, companies can benefit from improved license and cost management while improving collaboration and enhancing productivity.
Leading code optimizations
The sophisticated IAR Systems optimization technology generates very compact and fast code for Renesas RX. In average, the IAR Build Tools for Linux and IAR Embedded Workbench for Renesas RX generate 27 % smaller code than CC RX and 27 % smaller code than GCC.
Modern, scalable workflows
Support for modern and scalable build server topologies for CI/CD pipelines including Virtual Machines, Containers (Docker) and Self-hosted Runners.
Enabled by IAR Build Tools for Linux
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 for Linux, you are able to use Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery in Linux 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.
