Full-scale adoption of the IAR Systems' integrated development environment for Arm.
By using high-precision, broad-range indoor position detection, it becomes easier to improve work practices at the site, whether the work involved in construction, manufacturing, physical distribution, or something else. The technology can also be used for hot-desking in an office, and to support ABW (Activity Based Working). In addition to such solutions in the workspace sphere, we are developing and providing services for healthcare and diversity, such as a system to prevent infectious disease through ascertainment of spaces, and research on the effect of minoxidil on hair growth employing contact-free vibratory pressure stimulation.
Adoption of IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm for Development System Standardization
The company has expanded its business by drawing on original technology, services, and products, but in product development, there have been concerns such as the need to shorten product lead times and the increasing siloing of development systems, which increasingly rely on individual skills and efforts. To resolve these problems, the company adopted the IAR Systems’ IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm.
This product features a high-quality compiler, excellent ease of use afforded by a full range of templates, and the versatility to support over 7000 Arm devices. Mr. Takahashi explains the circumstances of their adoption of IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm as follows.
Takahashi comments: We had been combining multiple tools such as the free compilers provided by the microcomputer manufacturers to develop our products, but the tools being used were different for each engineer, and because of the differences in versions and environments, sometimes the compiles would not work. Given that we were pressed for faster and more efficient product development, with our disorganized development tools, we risked excessive reliance on individual skills. We felt that we had to create an environment in which we could construct a standardized development system while maintaining product quality.
