IAR Systems has unveiled development tools that will support the ultra-low power SAM D20 microcontroller series from Atmel Corporation. Support is available using the tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM, which features optimising build tools and comprehensive debugging capabilities.

Atmel's SAM D20 series is based on the low-power ARM Cortex-M0+ core and integrates features such as high-precision 12bit analogue and internal oscillators, up to eight 16bit timer/counters, real-time performance, peripheral event system, and flexible clocking options and sleep modes. The series are designed for use in home automation, consumer, smart metering and industrial applications.

The complete development tool chain IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM includes the IAR C/C++ Compiler, assembler, linker, librarian, text editor, project manager, and C-SPY Debugger in a user-friendly integrated development environment. The tool chain provides highly optimising build tools and extensive debugging and analysis possibilities such as complex code and data breakpoints, runtime stack analysis, call stack visualisation, code coverage analysis and integrated monitoring of power consumption.

The recently released version 6.60 also adds support for IAR Systems' I-scope probe, which is used together with the in-circuit debugging probe I-jet and adds capabilities for current and voltage measurements. The measurements supply developers with knowledge about the power consumed by individual modules and allow them to optimise their applications for power consumption, hereby making full use of the energy-efficient features of the SAM D20 series.

Support for the SAM D20 family is available using IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM, version 6.60 and later.
