IAR Systems has announced the availability of version 2.20 of IAR Embedded Workbench for SH. The new product version is an addition to IAR Systems’ portfolio of C and C++ tools for building and debugging embedded system software for Renesas MCUs.
The new version of IAR Embedded Workbench for SH includes new debugger functionality as well as integration with Subversion. The compiler has been also been updated. Other features include options for loop unrolling and function inlining. Developers of C++ applications can now also draw on Virtual Function Elimination (VFE), where unused virtual functions are removed during the build process.
The IAR C-SPY Debugger is a part of the integrated development environment for SH. The simulator version of the debugger includes a new Timeline window allowing graphically correlated visualization of the call stack and the interrupt log, both plotted against time. This view provides a view of the system’s basic behavior.
Also the E10A-USB emulator version of the IAR C-SPY Debugger provides new functionality. Support for software breakpoints is now included and it is also possible to set breakpoints during program execution. The profiling tool can now present statistics based on trace data of the application’s performance.
An increasingly high number of 32-bit designs are RTOS-based and IAR Embedded Workbench for SH now comes with thread-safe libraries, allowing execution of multiple threads at the same time. IAR Embedded Workbench provides full support for SH-2A/ SH-2A FPU devices, used in both the automotive industry and in industrial automation. Version 2.20 contains support for the latest SH devices from Renesas, including support for Renesas 8-, 16-, and 32-bit devices.
