IAR Systems develops C and C++ compilers, debuggers, and other tools for developing and debugging firmware for 8-, 16-, and 32-bit processors. The company started out in the 8-bit market, but moved into the expanding 32-bit market, especially the market for 32-bit microcontrollers.

Products[edit]

  • IAR Embedded Workbench — a development environment that includes a C/C++ compiler and debugger that supports 30 different processor families
  • IAR visualSTATE — a design tool for developing event-driven programming systems based on the state machine paradigm. IAR visualSTATE presents the developer with the state machine subset of UML for C/C++ code generation. By restricting the design capabilities to state machines it is possible to employ formal model checking to find and flag unwanted properties like state dead-ends and unreachable parts of the design. It is not a full UML editor.
  • IAR KickStart Kit — a series of software and hardware evaluation environments based on various microcontrollers.
