IAR Embedded Workbench KickStart edition

IAR Systems has announced the free availability of its IAR Embedded Workbench KickStart edition for three MCU series in Luminary Micro's Stellaris familythe 100, 300 and 600 series. The KickStart edition boasts a 32Kbyte compiler, which fully supports all of the available on-chip flash for 14 of the 19 Stellaris MCUs currently on the market.

Luminary Micro is a fabless semiconductor that designs, markets and sells ARM Cortex-M3 processor-based MCUs and was the first to bring ARM for $1 to embedded developers. The company currently has 19 Stellaris MCUs available within four series: the 100, 300 and 600 that feature on-chip flash in ranges up to 32Kbytes; and the 64Kbyte on-chip flash 800 series. With this KickStart release, only the 64Kbyte-flash Stellaris 800 series devices are not fully supported with fully featured free commercial grade evaluation tools.

Earlier this year, the KickStart edition of the IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM (EWARM) was code-limited to 8Kbytes, but the larger on-chip flash memory on the latest MCUs from Luminary calls for larger evaluation versions of the software development tools in order to take advantage of the full power available. The larger compiler allows a thorough evaluation of the device and the tool chain itself, using a fairly complex application that uses a richer feature set.
