A new version of Altium Ltd's TASKING M16C software development toolset was released, which the company claims to excel in performance of generated code and accelerates application development.

The TASKING M16C software development toolset version 3.1r1 is a comprehensive toolset that supports both the Renesas M16C and the Renesas R8C/Tiny. It contains the TASKING Embedded Development Environment (EDE), C/C++/EC++ compiler with MISRA C code checking, assembler, linker/locator, CrossView Pro simulator debugger, and TASKING ROM monitor debugger and M16C flasher.

According to TASKING Product Manager Jeroen Verheijen, they included several new features in the compiler. "Run-time error checking capabilities are now available, offering a wealth of checks that reveal run-time errors. The profiling feature will contribute to execution time improvements, and compilation time has been greatly improved and the assembler was overhauled, added Verheijen.

The M16C architecture from Renesas Technology Corp. is a 16bit MCU featuring high C-programming efficiency, high-speed processing and low-power consumption. The combination of Renesas' M16C MCU and Altium's TASKING M16C software development toolset enhanced with next generation VIPER compiler technology enables engineers to develop high-performance and superior applications, the press release said.

Key features of TASKING M16C v3.1r1 include MISRA C code checking rules according to MISRA-C:2004 guidelines; extensive run-time error checking facilities in the compiler; and a profiler tool in the compiler that uses code instrumentation to determine which pieces of code execute slower than expected.

The toolset is available for PC/Windows and SUN/Solaris platforms and is priced at $2,790 for the complete C/C++/EC++ compiler and debugger PC toolset.
