IAR Systems Enhances Renesas’ R-IN32M3 Development Platform
Uppsala, Sweden—June 17, 2014—IAR Systems® today announces that its world-leading development tools for ARM enhances and extends the R-IN32M3 platform for industrial Ethernet protocols from Renesas Electronics, a premium supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions.
The R-IN32M3 is tailored for industrial networking applications. It significantly improves industrial Ethernet network performance with optimized hardware accelerators, while reducing costs by supporting multiple protocols such as EtherCAT®, EtherNet/IP®, PROFINET®, CANopen® and more, from a single device. It can be used for real-time network communication in gateways, I/O controllers, PLCs/PACs, embedded controllers, industrial drives and countless other networked applications. Its design flexibility allows one system design to serve a diversity of networks and applications.
To ease development and evaluation of R-IN32M3, IAR Systems has launched its starter kit IAR KickStart Kit™ for R-IN32M3 which includes IAR Embedded Workbench® for ARM. IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM is a complete and high-performance development toolchain including the highly-optimizing IAR C/C++ Compiler™ and the feature-rich C-SPY® Debugger in a user-friendly integrated development environment. It offers the world’s broadest support for Renesas microcontrollers, including the low-power ARM Cortex-M R-IN32M3 device.
IAR KickStart Kit for R-IN32M3 contains evaluation versions of IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM, a R-IN32M3 development board, an I-jet Lite debug probe and several example projects. The kit can be used to evaluate the tools and the included R-IN32M3 microcontroller. More information about the kit and Renesas’ development platform is available on www.iar.com/renesas/R-IN32M3.
