One stop software shopping is being offered by IAR Systems for the whole range of Freescale's three lines of microcontrollers. Look for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to adopt IAR for its tight integration with Freescale as the new processors become available later this year. R.C.J.
Freescale's newest Kinetis, ColfFire and i.MX microcontrollers can now all use a common software development environment from IAR Systems...Now IAR Systems supports all three of Freescale's microcontroller families—Kinetis, ColdFire and i.MX—with a common development platform. In addition, IAR Systems announced that it has collaborated with Freescale to provide a complete hardware/software development kit for Freescale's iMX multimedia processors. The common software development environment includes full support for Freescale's MQX real-time operating system (RTOS), as well as USB host and device stacks, and a TCP/IP communications stack, according to IAR Systems. The IAR C-Spy Debugger works with the RTOS, making it possible to watch for example tasks, semaphores and mail boxes, according to the company.
