Through its optimization technology, the IAR C/C++ Compiler can significantly reduce the application code, allowing developers to add more features to their Synergy microcontrollers (MCUs). The compiler’s industry-best execution speed for generated code is clearly documented in established speed benchmarks such as EEMBC Coremark. Faster code execution speed enables an MCU to spend more time in low power modes to conserve battery life.
Previously, e² studio users would build their applications using the standard GCC GNU compiler. This new collaboration with IAR Systems adds the option to use theIAR C/C++ Compiler directly from within e² studio, while keeping the existing option to use the proprietary IAR Embedded Workbench for Renesas Synergy IDE.
