Renesas Electronics America and IAR Systems partnered to offer a development tool for Renesas’ 32-bit RX microcontroller (MCU) series with compliance to the safety standard IEC61508. The suite is positioned to enable customers designing with Renesas RX MCUs to streamline the certification process and reduce time to market. IAR Systems now provides a new version of the complete development tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench for RX, which is already certified for creating safety embedded applications. It includes high-performance compiler and debugger tools incorporated in an easy-to-use integrated development environment. According to the companies, the solution will enable customers to proceed with the application software development without considering the normative requirements of the IEC61508 for the compiler tools.
