Embedded Programming with IAR Embedded Workbench

Every developer needs their application to be fast, compact, and energy-friendly. This can be accomplished if you use the right compiler and build tools effectively! 

In this course, you will learn how to work with a professional compiler and linker to find the optimal balance between size and speed for your application and we will show you how to quickly measure the effects of optimization in your application. In addition, you will learn which coding constructs are safe from an optimization point-of-view, and which ones hamper optimization.

The course is focused on Arm technology.


  1. IDE introduction
  2. Compiler technology
  3. Linker technology
  4. Coding techniques

After completing the course, you will be able to:

  • Avoid common pitfalls in your developing projects.
  • Master the functionality of IAR Embedded Workbench and write efficient and compiler-friendly code.
