IAR Pushes Cortex-M3 Support

IAR was riding the Corex-M3 wave at ESC Boston. This included offerings from STmicroelectronics and Luminary Micro. Support included IAR’s range of development tools and operating systems including the IAR Embedded Workbench, visualSTATE state machine tools and small footprint IAR PowerPac RTOS. IAR complements its software offerings with a range of development kits including the IAR KickStart Kit for STM32. The STM32 is the new ARM-based product line from STmicroelectronics. The kit includes a 20-state version of visualSTATE, an eval version of IAR PowerPac for ARM and IAR Embedded Workbench with a 32Kbyte Kickstart version of the IAR C/C++ Compiler. The board’s JTAG interface connects to the USB-based J-LINK JTAG debugger. The STM32 board has a STM32F103 microcontroller with a 128 Kbytes of flash, a pair of RS232 connectors, a USB interface, an I2C interface, an SPI interface, a CAN interface, a 16 character/two line LCD display, 16 user LEDs, and an SD/MMC card socket. The on-board amplifier has microphone and headphone jacks. Related Links IAR Luminary Micro STMicroelectronics
