IAR Systems Extends Product Portfolio for Streamlined Linux-Based Automated Workflows

IAR Systems presented the latest addition to its build tools for Linux, 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 (MCUs), enabling organizations to streamline building and testing workflows.

Per the company, IAR Build Tools for Linux make it possible to optimize resources when it comes to the time developers spend in their projects, as well as to manage and utilize licenses and servers in an optimal way. The tools can be integrated into different build systems, such as CMake and Ninja, and the command line build utility IARBuild streamlines building for ideal integration with Continuous Integration engines like Jenkins and Bamboo, or with docker containers. With the integrated static analysis tool C-STAT, developers can 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).

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.
