IAR Systems released its newest version the functional safety edition of IAR Embedded Workbench for Renesas’ RX Family of microcontrollers (MCUs). The new workbench version adds extended capabilities including IDE features, stack protection, and support for the latest C18 and C++17 language standards. In addition, the toolchain now supports the latest RX devices including the RX66T, RX72T, RX65N and RX72M MCUs with Renesas Trusted Secure IP.

The functional safety edition is certified as a qualified tool for development of safety-related applications. TÜV SÜD made the certification in accordance to the requirements of IEC 61508, the international umbrella standard for functional safety, and ISO 26262. Integrated into the workbench are C-STAT and C-RUN to ensure code quality and runtime analysis.

As for all functional safety toolchain editions from IAR Systems, this latest product version is validated and delivered as a frozen version, according to the company.

In addition to Renesas RX, IAR Embedded Workbench is available as functional safety editions for Renesas RL78 and RH850, as well as for Arm and STMicroelectronics’ STM8.
