IAR Systems Group AB's acquisition of Signum Systems Corp. has bolstered the company's hardware and software development tools portfolio for embedded systems.

"By combining our technologies and know-how, our future product roadmap will be highly attractive to our large customer base and beyond," stated Stefan Skarin, CEO, IAR Systems. He added that Signum is in many ways similar to IAR Systems.

Signum supplies JTAGjet, a series of JTAG-based emulators, in-circuit emulators (ICE) and debuggers such as the Chameleon Debugger to developers of microcontroller-, microprocessor- and DSP-based systems. Supported devices include all ARM processor architectures including ARM7, 9, 11, ARM Cortex-M0, M1, M3, M4, R4, A8, A9, MPCore and Intel XScale. Signum also supports all Texas Instrument's DSP processor architectures.

Like IAR Systems, Signum has its strongest position in the fast-growing ARM-based market, the company stated. "The acquisition taps into our commitment to provide customers with reliable and powerful development tools for current and future ARM processors," noted Skarin.
