"As one of the world's largest semiconductor vendors, Renesas is an important strategic partner to us," said Olle Eriksson, CEO of IAR Systems. "This development agreement is a logical progression of the long-term relationship we have with Renesas and puts further emphasis on the commitment our two companies have together to provide outstanding solutions for the embedded market."

The agreement includes development of RX support in IAR Systems renowned C/C++ development environment IAR Embedded Workbench, as well as in the software product family IAR PowerPac with RTOS, file system, USB stack and TCP/IP stack. IAR Systems will also deliver a Japanese language version of IAR Embedded Workbench for RX, which will make it more attractive to the Japanese market where Renesas has an exceptional market share.

IAR Systems tools and software for Renesas RX family will be available in 2009.

Renesas and IAR Systems have a long history together, originating in earlier partnerships with Hitachi Ltd and Mitsubishi Electric Corp., founders of Renesas. Over the years, the partnership has resulted in support from IAR Systems for most Renesas MCU families, currently including H8, H8S, R8C, M16C, M32C and R32C.
