Support for GigaDevice RISC-V-based MCUs is provided in IAR Embedded Workbench for RISC-V. The solution is available now. For developers who would like to evaluate IAR Embedded Workbench for RISC-V and GigaDevice’s GD32VF103 series, IAR Systems provides a free evaluation kit to companies with commercially viable development projects.
As RISC-V technology and ecosystem evolves, the need for professional development tools aso increased. IAR Systems and GigaDevice are working to respond to that need with increased collaboration that will bring IAR Systems’ compiler and debugger technology to users of GigaDevice’s RISC-V-based MCUs. Together, IAR software andGigaDevice technology will allow solutions that combine processing power, reduced power consumption and a rich peripheral set.
Thomas Andersson, Product Manager, IAR Systems explained, “The combination of GigaDevice’s processor core and IAR Embedded Workbench adds great device power optimization and development efficiency to the RISC-V community”.
“We are pleased to join forces with IAR Systems to launch a powerful development platform that will accelerate the growth of the RISC-V ecosystem,” says Eric Jin, Product Marketing Director, GigaDevice. “Together, we will offer powerful solutions for GigaDevice’s GD32VF103 series that will enable our customers to meet the demanding requirements of today's interconnected applications.”
IAR Systems provides the IAR Embedded Workbench C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain. The toolchain offers leading code performance for size and speed, as well as extensive debugging functionality with a fully integrated debugger including simulator and hardware debugging support.
GigaDevice provides a wide range of SPI NOR Flash, SPI NAND Flash, and MCUs for use in embedded, consumer, and mobile communications applications with more than 1 billion units shipped every year.
