IAR Embedded Workbench Integrates the NXP S32 Design Studio

IAR Systems recently announced that IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM is now integrated with the NXP Semiconductors S32 Design Studio, which is an integrated development environment (IDE) for NXP’s automotive and ultra-reliable microcontrollers. In addition to functionality such as pin configurator, bootloader and motor control toolbox, it provides AUTOSAR Microcontroller Abstraction Layer (MCAL) support and AUTOSAR OS for the S32K product line tailored for automotive applications.

By letting S32 Design Studio generate a project connection with IAR Embedded Workbench, the IAR C/C++ Compiler and the extensive C-SPY Debugger can be used to develop the application. Adding a project connection will automatically include the generated code to the IAR Embedded Workbench project. If the files are changed from S32 Design Studio, they are updated automatically in IAR Embedded Workbench. Due to an integration of the build chain of IAR Embedded Workbench into the Eclipse-based S32 Design Studio, you can also opt to continue development within the S32 Design Studio while utilizing the IAR C/C++ Compiler.

The C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM features comprehensive debugging possibilities and smart integrated profiling tools. It is available with build chain certification according to the automotive functional safety standard ISO 26262. In addition, IAR Systems offers fully integrated static and runtime analysis tools for complete code control.
