IAR Systems announces that its high-performance embedded development tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench once again has been selected as the toolchain for ZigBee development. Freescale Semiconductor has announced the Kinetis KW20 Wireless MCU and IAR Embedded Workbench is the supported tool chain for its alpha program. By enabling developers to run the ZigBee protocol stack on their Kinetis Cortex-M4 core, Freescale enhances the level of capability developers can bring to wireless applications.
IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM provides a complete development environment, integrated in a user-friendly IDE. The recently released version 6.40 introduces major feature enhancements including a new editor and source browser. It also adds outstanding optimizations, resulting in up to 40% faster code than for the previous version, on standard industry benchmarks.
