IAR Systems brings low-code state machine design solution to Linux

Latest version of the state machine design solution IAR Visual State adds cross-platform support for both Windows and Linux, and enables automated generation of C, C++, C# or Java code

Uppsala, Sweden—April 8, 2022—IAR Systems®, the world leader of software and services for embedded development, today announced the latest version of the graphical modeling and code generation solution IAR Visual State. The new version introduces cross-platform host support that allows IAR Visual State to run on either Linux or Windows, enabling flexible and efficient development workflows based on state machines.

Today, embedded systems are often developed by large and distributed teams with different skills. State machines and low-code development can be used as a common language for everyone in the team to understand and more efficiently build complex designs together. IAR Visual State is made specifically for embedded systems, allowing developers to use state machines in an easy, intuitive way. The solution enables teams to graphically design state machines and generate C, C++, C# or Java source code for embedded systems as well as smartphone or desktop applications, speeding up time to prototype.

With IAR Visual State, developers can graphically develop Java and C# applications in the same environment as C/C++ applications, dramatically reducing the risk of accidentally creating differences in functions as well as simplifying maintenance when developing systems containing both embedded and mobile or desktop applications. IAR Visual State also enables developers to perform simulation and validation at the same time for the different variants of the application, ensuring high-quality code and efficient project management, as well as reduce the time spent on the implementation of designs, shortening the time to market. In addition, functional safety standards, for example the IEC 61508, recommends state machines as one design method to meet higher Safety Integrity Levels (SIL) levels.

What is “real-time control” and why do you need it?

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Real-time control is the ability of a closed-loop system to gather data, process that data and update the system within a defined time window. If the system misses that defined window, its stability, precision and efficiency will degrade. Diminished control can be detrimental to system performance; for example, not achieving the necessary speeds or even overheating. This article will explain the functional blocks of a real-time control system and provide an example of a robotics application.

Industrial Ethernet Next Generation Connections

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Amphenol ICC

No longer are hierarchical communication models effective in this new era of Industry 4.0. We need to look at an independent communication model that includes a single network with industrial ethernet at its core. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Peter Swift about Amphenol’s SPE and iX Industrial family of connectors. They take a closer look at the details of these connector solutions and investigate why they are a great fit for the next generation of industrial automation applications.
