IAR Systems updates Linux build tools for Renesas RH850 MCUs

IAR Systems has released an update of its Renesas RH850 microcontroller (MCU)-focused build tools. The tools support implementation in Linux-based frameworks for automated application build and test processes.

The Renesas RH850 MCIs are used in automotive embedded systems. IAR Systems’ build tools for Linux streamlines the building and testing processes, making it possible for organisations to optimise resources and manage licenses and servers in an optimal way, says IAR.

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).

“Embedded systems complexity continues to be a major challenge for many of our customers worldwide, especially in the automotive industry where more and more features are added to vehicles,” said Kiyofumi Uemura, global automotive director, IAR Systems. “We are now extending our Linux offering for Renesas RH850-based embedded systems to support our automotive customers all the way from development start into automated workflows.”

IAR Systems’ build tools for Linux includes the optimising IAR C/C++ Compiler, IAR Assembler, Linker and library tools, 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.

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 also supported.

IAR Systems is a Renesas Alliance Partner, providing development tools for the entire line up of Renesas MCUs. With more than 4,000 supported Renesas devices, the C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench and its selection of integrated tools are used by embedded developers working with the Renesas product portfolio.

IAR Systems supplies future-proof software tools and services for embedded development. Since 1983, IAR Systems’ solutions have been used in the development of over one million embedded applications.

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, is part of IAR Systems Group.
