IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM and IAR PowerPac for ARM now feature full support for the Atmel ARM Cortex-M3-based SAM3U microcontroller family. In close cooperation with Atmel, IAR has added new configuration files, flash loaders and project examples to IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM for Atmel's new SAM3U Cortex-M3 based MCU. The device specific support achieved by these additions makes it quick and easy to get started with a project and allows the user to concentrate on application development tasks.

The latest update of IAR PowerPac includes the new Board Support Packages (BSPs) for the SAM3U as well as the new SAM3U evaluation kit available from Atmel and IAR Systems. The BSPs include all the drivers and low level routines needed for the operating system and communication software to interface the hardware and access the peripherals on the boards.

The IAR PowerPac USB stack takes full advantage of the 480Mbit/s high-speed USB device controller and benefits from the advanced DMA supported bus and memory architecture in the SAM3U device. The SDIO/SD-card interface is fully supported in the PowerPac File system with its multimedia support.

"IAR Systems development tools have for a long time been the tool set of choice for our ARM Flash-based microcontroller developments." said Jacko Wilbrink, marketing director for ARM-based MCUs. "The well tested comprehensive IAR tools support the whole range of Atmel microcontrollers now including the new SAM3U device. Atmel and IAR pre- and post-sales engineers have full access to IAR tools and evaluation kits ensuring quick turn-around and high-quality support to customers."

"The addition of this new high performance connectivity oriented device, will, in combination with the IAR Systems development tools, RTOS and middleware products, create new exciting opportunities for our customers in the embedded space," said Anders Flodin, director of business development, IAR.
