IAR, GigaDevice Announce New Collaboration for Development Tool Creation Based on RISC-V

June 2, 2020 Perry Cohen

IAR Systems and GigaDevice announced a new collaboration to deliver development tools for GigaDevice’s RISC-V based microcontrollers (MCUs).

“We are very excited about this collaboration with GigaDevice as it will bring support for their award-winning RISC-V 32-bit processor core to our leading development tools,” said product manager at IAR Thomas Andersson, in a press release. “The combination of GigaDevice’s processor core and IAR Embedded Workbench adds great device power optimization and development efficiency to the RISC-V community.”

As RISC-V technology expands, the need for development tools also increases. IAR and GigaDevice are answering to this need by combining IAR’s compiler and debugger technology with the RISC-V-based MCUs from GigaDevice. According to the companies, the collaboration will have an effect on ‘tens of thousands’ of companies looking to complete solutions based on RISC-V.

Developers looking to use IAR Embedded Workbench for RISC-V and GigaDevice’s GD32VF103 series can do so for free when working for companies with commercially viable development projects.
