IAR Systems produces Linux build tools for Renesas RL78

Adding to support for Arm, RISC-V, Renesas RH850 and Renesas RX, IAR Systems has added Linux-based automated workflows for Renesas RL78 microcontrollers.

The latest addition to the build tools for Linux are based on the build tools in the development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench. The extended tools now support deployment in Linux-based frameworks for Renesas’ low-power RL78 microcontrollers, enabling organisations to streamline building and testing workflows, says IAR Systems.

IAR Build Tools for Linux were created to optimise resources to meet today’s embedded applications which are future rich and increasingly complex. The tools can be easily integrated into different build systems, such as CMake and Ninja, and the command line build utility IARBuild streamlines building for easy integration with continuous integration engines like Jenkins and Bamboo, or with docker containers. The integrated static analysis tool C-STAT allows developers to ensure code quality throughout the development and testing process. C-STAT proves code alignment with industry standards like MISRA C:2012, MISRA C++:2008 and MISRA C:2004, and also detects defects, bugs, and security vulnerabilities as defined by CERT C and the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE).

According to IAR, adding support for Renesas RL78 microcontrollers for the build tools shows its commitment to investment in technology to support customers throughout their development workflows.

IAR Build Tools for Linux include the IAR C/C++ Compiler, IAR Assembler, Linker and library tools, C-STAT, IARBuild, and runtime libraries. The IAR C/C++ Compiler adheres to a freestanding implementation of the C18 (ISO/IEC 9899:2018) programming language standard and supports all C++17 features. In addition, C++14 (ISO/IEC 14882:2015), C11 (ISO/IEC 9899:2012), C89 (ANSI X3.159-1989) and the IEEE 754 standard for floating-point arithmetic are supported.

IAR Build Tools for Linux are available for Arm, RISC-V, Renesas RH850, Renesas RX and Renesas RL78.

IAR Systems supplies future-proof software tools and services for embedded development. The company is headquartered in Uppsala, Sweden and has sales and support offices all over the world. Since 2018, Secure Thingz, the global domain expert in device security, embedded systems, and lifecycle management has been part of IAR Systems.
