Advanced semiconductor solutions supplier Renesas Electronics Corporation has made an enhancement to its e² studio integrated development environment (IDE) tool for the Renesas Synergy Platform. Now, Renesas Synergy customers can get benefits by integrating IAR Systems’ advanced IAR C/C++ Compiler into the Eclipse-based e² studio IDE. The Synergy Platform reduces total cost of ownership and removes the obstacles engineers face designing IoT products.
Through its optimization technology, the IAR C/C++ Compiler can significantly reduce the application code, allowing developers to add more features to their Synergy microcontrollers (MCUs). Networked Internet of Things (IoT) devices use Synergy MCUs to monitor and/or control the surrounding environment and system components in home/building/industrial automation systems, home appliances, energy management systems, and healthcare and medical equipment.
“Synergy Platform customers can choose from two professional software development tools – e² studio or IAR Embedded Workbench – with no license or maintenance fees and no limitation on the number of user seats. Enabling our e² studio users to access the IAR C/C++ Compiler demonstrates our commitment to increase the value and capabilities of the Synergy Platform by helping developers get through their design process faster than ever before,” said Mark Rootz, Marketing Director, Synergy Platform Business Division, Renesas Electronics Corporation.
“Adding support for our advanced compiler technology to the e² studio tool gives developers additional options for optimizing their IoT applications. Our close collaboration with Renesas Electronics provides Synergy Platform customers with the tools they need to speed their product innovations to market,” said Anders Lundgren, Product Manager, IAR Systems.
