The performance of the different compilers can be compared and the one generating the best code can be picked for the release build. For most applications, the GCC or LLVM/Clang compilers that come with Embedded Studio are used.


For an application that requires a commercial compiler for its release build, there is no need need to use the same compiler for all the members of a development team. A single licence for the commercial compiler is all that is needed, reducing total licensing costs. Embedded Studio also comes with a project importer supporting IAR and Keil tool chains, making the migration process easy.

Embedded Studio is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) made by and for embedded software developers. Unlike a lot of other IDEs, it is not Eclipse based, very fast, intuitive and easy to use.


It is a complete solution for any ARM based processor, from legacy ARM7, ARM9 and ARM11 devices to Cortex-A, R and M, and comes with a system library that is optimized for embedded systems and GCC and LLVM compilers. Embedded Studio is platform independent and can be used on Windows, Mac OS-X and Linux hosts.


The software can be downloaded and installed in just a few minutes. It comes with a friendly licensing model that allows unlimited evaluation with no code size limit and free of charge use for educational purposes and hobbyists. The full functionality is available in this mode, a small “nag screen” is the only limitation. Full product specifications are available at:
