The components can be easily integrated into development environments with link-time optimization (LTO) to significantly reduce code size and increase speed to boost the performance of an average GCC-based toolchain.

Segger’s Clang-based optimizing C/C++ compiler offering a modern and flexible front end and supporting the latest C and C++ language features. It has been optimized by Segger to generate fast and small code. Being fully compatible with GCC and Clang, existing projects can easily use the compiler.

The Linker simplifies linking, optimizes the size of an application and solves common linking problems that normally arise in embedded system development. Designed to be very flexible and simple to use, it was written from scratch by Segger without legacy code specifically to address the requirements of embedded developers. This uses highly flexible placement algorithms to automatically flow code and data around fixed areas and provides ultra-fast linkage, even for large applications. It also minimizes ROM usage and offers the option to compress RAM-based data and code.

“Segger’s emRun and emFloat have become the gold standard in the industry and have been licensed to multiple toolchain vendors and large corporations since being made available just a short time ago. On the heels of this success, we decided to also make our compiler and linker available,” said Rolf Segger, founder of Segger. “The combination of our compiler, linker and runtime library can generate the smallest programs out there.”

The compiler, linker, runtime and floating-point libraries have been widely used as part of Segger Embedded Studio which can also be used to evaluate these components. Segger’s ‘Friendly License’ allows Embedded Studio can be easily downloaded and evaluated or used free of charge for educational and non-commercial purposes, on all platforms without code size, feature or time limit.
