IAR Systems had added Actel SmartFusion support to IAR Embedded Workbench. A free evaluation version of IAR Embedded Workbench is available for use with Actel’s SmartFusion Evaluation and Development Kits, allowing embedded designers up to 32KB of code. With its technology alliance with Micrium, IAR Systems will provide a complete solution including RTOS, TCP/IP and other middleware products.
Actel’s SmartFusion devices integrate an FPGA, ARM Cortex-M3-based microcontroller subsystem and programmable analog on a single chip. SmartFusion devices offer a compelling solution in a wide variety of applications, including motor control, system and power management and industrial automation. These applications span the industrial, military, medical, telecommunications, computing and storage markets.
IAR Embedded Workbench seamlessly combines with an eco-system of middleware options, a major advantage for end users adopting these new devices.
