IAR Systems (Uppsala, Sweden) has launched a new version of its embedded development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM. Version 6.60 adds possibilities for running Power Debugging on all ARM cores, as well as functionality for invoking external code analysis tools. Added support for IAR Systems’ I-scope probe adds possibilities for current and voltage measurements. I-scope is used together with the in-circuit debugging probe I-jet and offers developers knowledge of the power consumed by individual modules, enabling them to optimize their applications for power consumption, detect if design flaws in the code are causing unnecessary power consumption and possibly extend battery lifetime. Features include:

  • Low-power ARM Cortex-M0/M0+ cores.
  • Code correlation with the measured values provided for ARM Cortex-M3/M4 cores.
  • Flexible mechanism for invoking external analyzers for project files. \
  • Intuitive integration makes it easy to use these tools together with IAR Embedded Workbench.
