Low-code state machine design tool for Linux
IAR Systems has added cross platform support with Linux to its low code state machine tool.
Generating state machines using graphical modelling rather than coding boosts the performance of designers and enhances reliability, leading to a boom in ‘low code’ tools for embedded system development.
State machines and low-code development can be used as a common language for everyone in the team to understand and more efficiently build complex designs in large teams. Functional safety standards such as IEC 61508 also recommend state machines as a design method to meet higher Safety Integrity Levels (SIL) levels.
- C++ heap manager provides real time, deterministic performance
- Updated code generation tool for event-driven designs
The latest version of IAR Visual State introduces cross-platform host support that allows the tool to run on either Linux or Windows, enabling flexible and efficient development workflows based on state machines.
IAR Visual State is made specifically for embedded systems, allowing developers to use state machines in an intuitive way and generate C, C++, C# or Java source code for embedded systems as well as smartphone or desktop applications, speeding up time to prototype.
Developers can graphically develop Java and C# applications in the same environment as C/C++ applications, reducing the risk of accidentally creating differences in functions as well as simplifying maintenance when developing systems containing both embedded and mobile or desktop applications.
The tool also supports simulation and validation at the same time for the different variants of the application, ensuring high-quality code and efficient project management, as well as reduce the time spent on the implementation of designs, shortening the time to market.
