A suite of tools for developing embedded applications based on Renesas Electronics’ new RH850 core has been announced by IAR Systems.

The company advises the new tool launch enables full support for leveraging  the new RH850 core.

These microcontrollers target automotive applications and are described by the company as the industry’s first with embedded 40nm flash technology. The series focuses on functional safety and security requirements and integrates high performance and low power consumption. It offers features such as ultra-low power, high temperature tolerance, multi-core technology and compliance with the standardised automotive software architecture AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture).

The embedded workbench features build tools and incorporated debugger an integrated development environment with a feature-rich text editor and source browser

The tools use the standard ELF/DWARF object format, and are compliant with Renesas ABI (Application Binary Interface), which gives users the possibility to incorporate libraries created with other ABI-compliant software tools from the company. Integrated automatic checking of MISRA-C rules helps with safety and reliability of the applications designed. The C-SPY Debugger supports Renesas E1/E20 emulators, as well as kernel-aware debugging with built-in plugins for a large number of real-time operating systems (RTOSes).
