IAR Systems to extend comprehensive Renesas Electronics microcontroller support with addition of RL78 device

January 11th, 2011 – Uppsala, Sweden. IAR Systems today announced it will extend its range of Renesas Electronics microcontroller (MCU) support to include its latest low power RL78 family of MCUs. Already providing an extensive tool chain for all Renesas Electronics MCU devices, the new RL78 MCUs will use the same integrated development environment (IDE), IAR Embedded Workbench. Using the same environment makes it easier for a developer to switch between Renesas Electronics’ MCU targets, reuse code between projects and reduce project risks.

“Our customers continue to benefit from the close cooperation we have with IAR Systems”, comments Mohammed … Read More → "IAR Systems to extend comprehensive Renesas Electronics microcontroller support with addition of RL78 device"
