IAR Systems updates design and code generation tool 

Software tool and services from IAR Systems now include version 9.1 of the graphical modeling tool IAR Visual State. According to IAR Systems, this version speeds up and simplifies development when working in teams.

The design and code generation tool helps developers bring order to their designs and speed up their projects. It is used to graphically design state machines and generate C/C++ source code. IAR Systems believes that developers can speed up time to prototype and shorten time to market, using the tool. For efficient team work, smart features for organising and modularising the design is available. The IAR Visual State tool is made for embedded systems and enables developers to use state machines in an easy and intuitive way, claims the company.

Version 9.1 adds a number of functions to improve usability and simplify teamwork, with functionality for comparing changes between different versions of a design, element files for simplified design modularisation, and the possibility to add graphics in notes.
IAR Visual State generates very compact code that is compliant with MISRA C/C++ coding standards. The stable code generation engine has gone through 20 years of testing. In addition, documentation is generated and the tool is integrated with the complete C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench, enabling developers to debug on hardware with graphical animation, set breakpoints at state-machine level and trace and log functionality. An integration with Socionext CGI Studio enables developers to create human machine interface (HMI) and GUI designs, import graphical artwork and combine sceneries with logic.
