IAR Systems is now supporting for the highly recently introduced Kinetis E series microcontrollers from Freescale Semiconductor. The support is available using the company’s Embedded Workbench for ARM.
The new MCUs – the first 5V, 32-bit MCUs built on the ARM Cortex-M0+ processor – feature rugged electromagnetic noise immunity for systems historically limited to 8- and 16-bit MCUs, while providing high efficiency and optimal code density.
The combination of IAR’s Embedded Workbench and the Kinetis E series MCUs are an ideal platform for rapid development, making it possible to create low-power, high-performance applications. Featuring a built-in chip-specific code optimiser, this platform is a good resource for generating flashable code for Kinetis microcontrollers. It is integrated with Freescale MQX Software Solutions and with Freescale Processor Expert software modeling tool and comes with example projects for MQX, the Tower kit, and the Freedom Development Platform. It offers automatic project configuration for all Kinetis devices.
