IAR Systems (Sweden) has released a new version of its development tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench for Renesas RL78. The new version 1.30 adds a large amount of new functionality for code writing and debugging. Features include:

  • New text editor and source browser, which includes user-friendly features such as auto-completion, parameter hints, code folding, block select and indent, bracket matching, zooming and word/paragraph navigation.
  • Project connections functionality for automated integration with device configuration tools.
  • The possibility to connect an E1 or E20 emulator to a running system to inspect it without interrupting program execution.
  • Sampled Graphs and several new windows
  • A new Custom SFR window that allows users to define custom special function registers (SFRs) in C-SPY with selectable access size and type, while the Call Graph window displays all calls made to and from each function from any source file in the active project.
