IAR Systems introduces an updated version of its embedded development tools IAR Embedded Workbench for Renesas RL78. The version includes major new functionality enabling simplified development and increased code quality control for applications based on Renesas low-power RL78 microcontrollers.
Release notes for IAR Embedded Workbench for Renesas RL78 version 3.10.1:
- Updated IDE look and feel
The IDE has new artwork, enhancements to window management and docking, customizable toolbars, revised Information Center, and new tutorials.
- Enhanced Registers and Symbols windows in C-SPY
The C-SPY Symbols and Registers windows have been re-designed with new features. The Symbols window now has a filtering function and a new column displaying to which program module a certain symbol belongs. Some of the new features in the Registers window are drag-and-drop support from source code windows, detailed register tool-tip information, and improved handling of user-defined registers groups.
- E2 emulator support
C-SPY now supports the Renesas E2 on-chip debugging emulator.
- C-SPY start/stop function support
The start/stop function available for the OCD emulators makes it possible to execute specified routines of the user application immediately before starting and immediately after halting program execution.
- Smart Analog support in C-SPY
The Timeline and Event log windows in C-SPY now supports RL78 devices with a built-in analog front-end for sensor applications.
- Updated device support
SFR header files, linker configuration files, and device description files have been added for the latest Renesas devices.
- Updated user documentation
The C-SPY Debugging Guide and IDE Project Management and Building Guide have been updated to reflect the product changes.
