The Embedded Workbench development tool from IAR now offers extended support of the latest release of IAR for Arm 9.32.1 for GigaDevice’s GD32 MCU series. This includes GigaDevice’s automotive-grade microcontrollers based on the Cortex-M33 core.
The GigaDevice GD32A503 MCU family adopts an advanced automotive electronics process technology platform, which follows the design concept and production standards of automotive applications. The microcontroller family meets the reliability and stability requirements of vehicles and can be used in various automotive applications including body control modules, automotive lighting systems, smart cockpit systems, and many other motor or power applications. The GD32A503 devices are also suitable for several advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).
The GD32A503 series is in the same line as industrial products in terms of development tools and supporting software, achieving maximum compatibility and reuse, which can save development time and reduce development difficulty. Software developers can realize automotive-grade projects by using the existing rich MCU ecosystem, which will continue to leverage the advantages of Arm technology and promote the popularization in the field of automotive electronics.
IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm is a development toolchain for GD32 MCU, including an optimizing compiler and advanced debugging functions. With the help of code analysis tools C-STAT and C-RUN, developers can find potential problems in the code earlier and improve code quality. IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm is also available in a functional safety version certified by TÜV SÜD and complies with the requirements of ISO 26262.
To meet growing customer demand, the latest version 9.32.1 of IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm also provides developers with Visual Studio Code build and debug extensions which can be downloaded by Visual Studio Code Marketplace.
